ALLEGED “تطهير” shooter Joseph Jimenez appeared in court on Friday charged with opening fire on two teens on a first date at a movie theatre in Corona, كاليفورنيا – leaving one dead and the other fighting for life.
The Riverside County District Attorney’s Office charged Jimenez, 20, with murder and attempted murder and added sentence enhancements for using a firearm to cause death and injury.
In emotional scenes in court, Dave Goodrich, the father of 18-year-old victim Rylee Goodrich, screamed and wept as Jimenez was led from the Riverside court complex.
He shouted: “Hey, انظر إلي, أخ!” Look at me! Look at me, dude!” before sobbing and falling into a friend’s embrace.
Jimenez is currently being held without bail after he allegedly stormed Regal Edwards Corona Crossings movie theater and shot Goodrich and 19-year-old Anthony Barajas on Monday night.
The shooting took place during a screening of the movie The Forever Purge.
Goodrich was pronounced dead at the scene and Barajas, who remains on life support, was left critically injured.
جودريتش, a cheerleader, was reportedly on a first date with Barajas, a TikTok influencer.
Dave Goodrich said earlier his daughter “لم يكن لديه حتى فرصة” after Jimenez allegedly shot her at point blank range.
Barajas has reportedly been declared as brain dead following the shooting.
