Police: Man shot, killed after 'prank robbery' for YouTube video went wrong

NASHVILLE, Tenn. A man was shot and killed Friday night in the parking lot of a Tennessee business after a robbery "prank" for a YouTube channel went wrong, according to police.

The homicide unit is investigating a claim of self-defense in the shooting, the Metro Nashville Police Department stated in a Saturday news release.

Timothy Wilks, 20, was shot and killed in the parking lot of Urban Air Trampoline and Adventure Park in Nashville around 9:20 p.m. CST. When officers arrived at the scene around five minutes later, 23-year-old David Starnes Jr. admitted to shooting Wilks.

Investigators were told that Wilks and a friend approached a group of people, including Starnes, with butcher knives while participating in a "prank" robbery for a YouTube video.
