TikTok star Anthony Barajas has died after being injured in a shooting at a California movie theater days earlier, the Corona Police Department announced Saturday.

Barajas had been on life support after being shot on July 26. The 19-year-old was shot while attending an evening showing of the horror movie "Forever Purge" with his date, 18-year-old Rylee Goodrich, who died at the scene.

Police arrested one suspect, 20-year-old Joseph Jimenez. They said in a statement that they're working alongside local prosecutors to add a second count of first-degree murder against him. Jimenez also faces a robbery charge and is being held on $2 million bail, police said.

Police said in a July 28 statement that there was no known motive, and the shooting "appears to be an unprovoked attack."

The shooting had even gone unnoticed until the movie finished, when staff discovered Barajas and Goodrich while they cleaned the theater. One employee told CBS Los Angeles that the staff hadn't heard a gunshot while the movie was playing.

Goodrich's father, David Goodrich, told the Daily Mail in an interview that his daughter "never even had a chance," dying instantly when a bullet struck the back of her head.

David Goodrich added that Barajas likely survived the shooting initially because he turned after hearing the first shot. The second bullet went through Barajas' eye, he said.

David Goodrich said his daughter had been on a first date with Barajas, a Los Angeles resident with nearly 1 million followers on TikTok.

"I could tell she really, really liked this boy. And he really, really liked her. She was so f---ing happy," he said.

Both Barajas' and Goodrich's families have started GoFundMe pages for funeral and medical costs.

Police said they arrested Jimenez after serving a search warrant at his home, where they found a firearm that matched the caliber of one used in the shooting. They also found "additional evidence related to the crime scene."
