Home invasion suspect targeted Youtube celebrities, police say

A New Mexico man who was obsessed with a famous YouTube couple was shot and killed after breaking into the couple's home and forcing them to hide in the closet and call 911. As he was backing his auto out of the driveway, Austin Police Department officers arrived and ordered him to stop and leave the vehicle. Police arrived at the scene as Giles was attempting to leave, at which point he was ordered to stop.

A spokeswoman for the Austin Police Department said the case is under investigation and she could not answer any additional questions about it. After an exchange of gunfire with police he died in the couple's drive. People whom police interviewed - who were not named in the warrant - described Giles as single, lonely and disturbed, the document says.

Free and Turney tweeted to thank Austin Police following the incident.

And his phone was full of notes suggesting he had "developed a fondness" for the woman, Megan Turney, and a dislike of her boyfriend, Gavin Free. They called 911 from their bedroom closet, where they hid while Giles searched the house.

Austin police received a call on January 26 from a woman who said she and her boyfriend were awakened by a gunshot and the sound of breaking glass, then heard someone enter their back door and walk around. One of the officers, identified in the Austin American-Statesman as Officer Matthew Jackson, fired back. When Giles fired his gun, an officer returned fire.

An Albuquerque man who died in an officer-involved shooting after breaking into a Hyde Park home last month might have died from a self-inflicted gunshot and appears to have been trying to harm a couple who are internet celebrities, according to an Albuquerque police search warrant.

Giles was pronounced dead on the scene, a.45 caliber handgun near his hand, according to the affidavit. "Threatening thoughts were recorded by Giles and directed toward Gavin Free, i.e., "I want Gavin Free to die alone, with no children, '" the court documents read".

Nothing was stolen from the couple's house, the warrant says.

Meg also thanks the Austin Police "for their quick response" and "ongoing support during this hard time".
