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: “Oye, look at me, hermano!” 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.

Goodrich, a cheerleader, was reportedly on a first date with Barajas, a TikTok influencer.

Dave Goodrich said earlier his daughternever even had a chanceafter Jimenez allegedly shot her at point blank range.

Barajas has reportedly been declared as brain dead following the shooting.

Police took Jimenez into custody while serving a search warrant at his presumed residence just outside the Corona city limits.

While executing the search warrant, police found a handgun of the same caliber that was the weapon believed to have been used in the shooting.

Authorities are still working to find a motive for the shooting.

There does not seem to be a connection between the victims and Jimenez, with the District Attorney’s Office saying they believe the attack to be random.
