TikTok star Anthony Barajas has died in hospital, five days after he was shot in the head inside a California movie theater while on a first date.  

The Corona Police Department confirmed that the 19-year-old succumbed to his injuries on Saturday morning, saying in a statement that they 'extend their condolences to his family and friends'.

Barajas was watching a late-night screening of The Forever Purge with first date, Rylee Goodrich, 18,  at a theater in Corona on Monday night when they were both shot. 

Goodrich, who was also struck in the head, died at the scene. Barajas was rushed to hospital. 

Jimmy Jiminez, 20, has been arrested over the 'random' attack. He was not said to have personally known either Barajas or Goodrich.

The heartbreaking news comes one day after Goodrich's father  confronted the alleged gunman as he appeared in court. 

The dad of 18-year-old Rylee Goodrich, David, demanded for the suspect to look in his direction as Joseph Jimenez, 20, was led through the courtroom in handcuffs. 

'Hey, look at me, bro! Look at me! Look at me, dude! That was my ...' the distraught parent said before breaking down in tears to be comforted by a friend.

Goodrich, 18, and her boyfriend, Anthony Barajas, 19, a well-known TikTok user, were found late on Monday night by employees after a 9:35pm showing of The Forever Purge at a theater in Corona. 

They had each been shot in the head. Goodrich died at the scene. Barajas was taken to a nearby hospital, where he remained on life support Friday, the Riverside County District Attorney's Office said in a statement. 

Defendant Jimenez appeared in Riverside County Superior Court on Friday but didn't enter a plea and his arraignment was continued to next week.

Jimenez has been jailed since his arrest and he has been charged with murder and attempted murder. It's not clear whether he has retained an attorney who can speak for him.

There was no known connection between the victims and Jimenez, authorities said and he has no previous adult criminal record.

'Based on the evidence provided to our office, this appears to be a random and unprovoked attack,' the statement said.

Corona police detectives identified Jimenez as a suspect and arrested him on Tuesday, seizing a handgun of the same caliber as the one believed to have been used in the shooting.

Police recovered Goodrich's wallet and other possessions from Jimenez's home less than 24 hours after the shooting.
