Timothy Wilks had a great idea for a YouTube prank — fake a robbery by charging at people with a giant knife. The result wasn’t funny:

A man was shot and killed Friday night in Nashville, Tenn., after wielding a butcher knife for a robbery “prank” intended for YouTube, police said, according to reports.
Officers were called to the car park of Urban Air Trampoline and Adventure Park around 9:20 p.m., according to a news release from Nashville police.
Police said Timothy Wilks, 20, and his friend brandished knives and approached a group that included David Starnes Jr, 23.
Police said Starnes shot Wilks in what he thought was self-defense, Nashville’s WSMV-TV reported.
Authorities are investigating the case and no charges have been filed against Starnes.

OK, maybe it was funny, if you have a sick, dark sense of humor. Me? I’m just reporting the news that there is one less idiot in the world.
