YouTuber Making Prank Video gets Shot after the Person ‘Didn’t take it Well’


A YouTuber is fighting for his life in intensive care after a prank turned violent.

Tanner Cook was filming a video for his YouTube channel, Classified Goons, in Virginia’s Dulles Town Center mall when a fight broke out between him and another man in the food court.

The altercation led to Cook being admitted to the hospital after the stranger opened fire.

He underwent surgery after the bullet pierced his stomach and liver. Police arrested the shooter, Colie, on April 2, charging him with aggravated malicious wounding, using a firearm in a felony, and discharging a firearm within a building.

Cook spoke to WUSA9 from his hospital bed and claimed that he was playing a harmless prank on Colie for his YouTube account, which has more than 40,000 subscribers.

One of Cook’s friends was filming the prank when Colie allegedly pulled out his gun and opened fire.

Cook’s father, Jeramy, condemned Colie’s actions, saying, “They were making a video at the mall and trying to have fun with people, and this guy wasn’t having fun. He didn’t like it, and he pulled out his gun and shot my son.”

Despite the incident, Cook doesn’t plan to stop playing practical jokes on strangers.

He revealed from his hospital bed, “I was playing a prank and a simple practical joke, and this guy didn’t take it very well, and he shot me.”

The incident is a stark reminder of the dangers of pranking strangers. While some people may find pranks amusing, it’s crucial to remember that not everyone has a sense of humor, and some may react negativley.

Cook’s video, which led to his injuries, may be used as evidence in Colie’s trial.

The incident involving Cook highlights the importance of being mindful of the consequences of our actions.

While pranks may seem harmless, they can have serious repercussions, and it’s essential to consider the impact of our actions on others.

We wish him a speedy recovery.
