Roger Fregoso 5h · An unbelievable and stunning story is coming out of Old Hickory today. Metro Police says Timothy Wilks, 20, was shot dead at 9:20 p.m. last night in a parking lot near Urban Air Adventure Park on Old Hickory Blvd. At the scene, alleged shooter David Starnes Jr., 23, admitted to the shooting, but says it was in self-defense, Police said. Homicide Unit detectives are being told that Wilks and a friend may have been filming a “prank” robbery for a YouTube video when the victim approached a group of people, including Starnes, with butcher knives. Police say Starnes told detectives he was unaware of the prank and shot Wilks in self-defense of himself and others in the group. The investigation is ongoing and no charges have been filed at this time… Two families are devastated today.

If it was a YouTube “prank” then there will be video evidence of what happened that night. If there isn’t any video footage, I’m calling it was a robbery that just went sideways with an excuse to hide the fact.
Me too. I can’t even imagine what both sets of parents are going through due to their children. Why???
What is wrong with all of the young people killing each other. I just don’t understand.
No excuse for “prank robbing” someone … But my question, after you revealed that you had a gun …what was the response of the two with the knife … Did they continue their prank or did they try to explain it was a prank while you shot them
Don’t bring a knife to a gun fight, maybe the guy shouldn’t have pulled the trigger so fast. I would think holding the guy with a gun on him, would’ve been enough to stop the prank and save the guy’s life. But could’ve would’ve should’ve…. so sad.
You dont go up to a guy acting to rob him . Not saying the guy deserved to get shot tho but where is common sense at these days.
Hey i have this bright idea. Let’s grab knives run up to poeple and prank rob them. YouTube will love it and we will be famous. Well not today you won’t. Why on earth did these kids think that was a good idea. I mean what could possibly go wrong. Oh yeah. You end up dead.

I only feel sorry for the person that actually did the shooting. Even though he was acting in self-defense, it’s got to be mentally hard to deal with that. I pray for his state of mind. I’ll go ahead and send one up for the person that got killed family. No matter how stupid of a “prank“ (if thats true) It was, it leaves a devastated family behind.
