YouTuber Timothy Wilks Shot Dead Filming Robbery Prank Gone Wrong

By Zach Sweat, Know Your Meme

YouTube pranks have been around for almost as long as the platform itself, and while many of them are completely harmless, some take things a little too far and wind up getting someone injured or even killed. Such is the case of YouTuber Timothy Wilks, who was shot dead last Friday after a “robbery prank” went awry.

The 20-year-old Tennessee man was reportedly recording the prank in the parking lot of Urban Air, a trampoline park, in Hermitage alongside a friend (who was not identified by police) at around 9 p.m. According to the police report, Wilks and his friend intended to stage a fake robbery for his channel where they would approach a car with butcher knives in their hands.
