She told the dispatcher that she and Free were awakened by the sound of a gunshot followed by breaking glass, and they heard an intruder walking around their home, the warrant says.

But part of that investigation includes assistance from homicide detectives with the Albuquerque Police Department who served a search warrant on Giles' Northwest Albuquerque apartment a couple of days after the shooting.

Armed with the warrant, police searched Giles' house on January 29 and seized two cellphones, a laptop, two tablets and an Xbox gaming system, Albuquerque court documents show. Giles fired at police, and an officer fired back, interim Austin Police Chief Brian Manley said.

TEXAS police have said a "disturbed fan" broke into the home of a YouTube celebrity couple armed with a gun and fired at least one shot inside the home. Austin authorities indicated that "it was apparent that Giles' sole intent was to cause harm to someone who resides there".

Police found several notes in Giles' phone referring to Ms Turney and her boyfriend Mr Free by name.

He said National Transportation Safety Board officials were expected at the crash scene to begin investigating the cause. The four survivors were airlifted to a Nevada hospital while crews were recovering the three bodies, authorities said.


Both Turney and Free were unharmed during the incident. Fox7 Austin reports that police labeled Giles "single, lonely and disturbed". Free and another YouTuber run the channel The Slow Mo Guys, which has more than 10 million followers.

As police arrived on scene, a Lincoln sedan with New Mexico plates was seen backing out of the driveway to the home.

Free seems to have been the main target of Giles's ire, with more than a thousand notes related to him logged on the gunman's phone. Austin Police officers confronted Giles as he drove away, hearing a gunshot from the vehicle and returning fire. It seems like he envied Free's aspirational lifestyle and his romantic relationship with Turney. An affidavit obtained by the Albuquerque Journal described Giles as "an avid player of video games and was known for watching YouTube videos that were centered on his hobby".

"I want to give a huge thanks to Austin Police for the unbelievable response time".

"Hey everyone. I just wanted to say thanks for all the support and concern regarding the recent incident, ' he tweeted on Monday". "It's been a rough time for Meg and myself the last few weeks but we are doing ok".
