Anthony, who goes by @itsanthonymichael on TikTok, was one of the two victims in the shooting. The second, his friend Rylee Goodrich, 18, tragically died from her injuries on the scene.

Anthony was taken to a local hospital following the shooting, which happened during a 9:35 p.m. screening of The Forever Purge at Regal Edwards Corona Crossings RPX theater.

Detectives arrested a suspect, Joseph Jimenez, 20, a day later after issuing a search warrant. There is not yet a motive for the shooting, and it appeared to be “unprovoked,” via police.

There is a GoFundMe page to help support, set up by his family.

The Corona Police Department is asking for help from anyone who was inside the theater, in another movie theater, or in the shopping center between 9 p.m. and 11:45 p.m on Monday night (July 26). Those who have any information are asked to call the Anonymous TIP Line at 951-817-5839 or Senior Detective Slaven Neagu at 951-739-4916 or email him at

Our thoughts are with the victims’ families at this incredibly difficult time.
