Anthony and his friend Rylee Goodrich, 18, were watching horror film "The Forever Purge" when they were shot inside the theater.

Rylee was reported dead at the scene. Anthony is on life support in an intensive care unit.

Theater workers didn't hear gunshots. They found the victims while cleaning out the theater after the movie ended at 9:30 p.m. Monday.

"During the actual movie time, no one apparently heard the gunshot," employee Kailyn Dillon told CBSLA Tuesday.

"I know that we do have security bag checks that we do on the daily and, unfortunately, I'm not sure if just was missed or if it was in a holster on their belt," she said.

Receipts show a total of six tickets were purchased for that showing of "The Forever Purge" film.

Anthony's cousin, Jamie Bacon, shared a heartbreaking update to Twitter on Wednesday, writing:

"My cousin was shot on Monday night. He won't make it. The family could use help with medical bills and beyond. At the very least, prayers, thoughts, vibes needed please."

Rylee's cousin, Ashley-Starr Cole, said Rylee was shot in the back of her head by someone sitting behind her in the theater. Anthony was also shot in the back of the head.

The family has created a GoFundMe.com to raise donations to cover Rylee's medical costs.

The City of Atlanta stepped up foot patrols inside Piedmont Park after a woman and her dog were stabbed and dismembered overnight Wednesday.

Katherine Janness, 40, was found stabbed and dismembered near the Charles Allen entrance to Piedmont Park after 1 a.m. Wednesday. Her pitbull Bowie was lying dead beside her.

Janness worked as a bartender for Campagnolo restaurant in Midtown Atlanta. She had just finished dinner at home and was walking her dog when she was brutally attacked.

Janness' lesbian partner pinged her phone and located her spouse's body inside the park.

Police are trying to determine if Janness' murder was random or targeted because the killer spent time with her body after she died.

Police are asking residents who live on 10th Street near the park to check their security videos.

Police aren't ruling out a serial killer after the remains of two bodies were found behind a shopping center in Henry County earlier this month.

Henry County police say the remains belong to two different people. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation is trying to identify the remains that were found in a wooded area behind a shopping center in Stockbridge, Georgia on July 7.

A $10,000 reward is being offered by Atlanta Crime Stoppers for information on the case.

R. Kelly allegedly sexually abused a 17-year-old boy after meeting him at a Chicago-area McDonald's in 2006, a new court filing alleges.

Federal prosecutors in New York alleged new accusations against the disgraced singer, including sexual assault and bribery, going back 30 years.

According to court docs, Kelly, 54, sexually abused the teen after asking him "what he was willing to do to succeed in the music business."

The teen allegedly introduced Kelly to a male friend, aged 16 or 17.

Several years later, when the male was 19 or 20, the star apparently started a sexual relationship with that person, referred to as John Doe #2. Kelly allegedly forced several of his girlfriends to have sex with the young man while he filmed the encounters.

In court documents filed on Friday, July 23, and obtained by the Chicago Sun-Times, prosecutors asked a judge to permit them to submit new evidence of the allegations at Kelly's upcoming racketeering trial in federal court in Brooklyn, New York.

Kelly faces federal charges of violating the Mann Act involving the coercion and transportation of women and girls in interstate commerce to engage in illegal sexual activity.

The singer, born Robert Sylvester Kelly, has not been charged with any new sexual offenses, according to the Post.

Prosecutors also claim to have evidence that Kelly sexually abused singer Aaliyah and married her in 1994, when she was 15, so that she couldn't be forced to testify against him. She died in a plane crash in 2001.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, a woman named Jane Doe #5 claimed Kelly asked her to search the internet for "child pornography involving boys for him".

According to court papers, a search of Kelly's computer corroborated the claim.

Additionally, the musician is accused of leading an enterprise to recruit women and girls for sex. He denies any wrongdoing. His Brooklyn trial is scheduled for August 9.

A separate trial for child pornography charges is set in his native Chicago, Illinois in September.

Kelly was recently slapped with a $2 million dollar tax lien for allegedly failing to pay taxes in 2008. As reported by Radar Online, the IRS filed a lien against Kelly's former Illinois mansion.

Kelly has pleaded not guilty on all counts.

Judd said law enforcement arrested 29 drug traffickers and issued arrest warrants for three others who are still at large.

"You can go ahead and turn yourself in or you can go to jail tired from running, but you're gonna go to jail," Sheriff Judd said, referring to the three fugitives.

Judd picked up several gold chains and wore them around is neck while taunting the jailed drug dealers.

"That's right, they thought they were cool. How cool are you today?" He said, while holding mugshots of two of the dealers.

"Can y'all make up a rap song about this? Well, I'll help you out. You see, we got your gold. We put your tail in the county jail. Think about that, brothas."

Two teenage boys have been charged with the shooting death of a 16-year-old Bronx boy sitting in the back seat of a livery taxi cab last weekend.

Ramon Gil-Medrano, aka Rah Gzz, was shot multiple times in the head and upper torso as he sat in the back of a cab. The shooting occurred on East 178th Street And Valentine Avenue in the Tremont neighborhood at 11:30 p.m. on Sunday, July 11.

Police arrested Mekhi Williams, 19, and an unnamed 15-year-old boy. Williams, who is believed to be a member of the Thirdside Gang, was picked up about 7:20 p.m. Saturday.

The 15-year-old was arrested at his home in Queens about 6:30 a.m. Saturday, police said.

The NYPD released video of the shooting on Sunday. The video shows two people ride up on a scooter and open fire through the rear passenger window, striking the teenager. The cab driver was not hurt in the shooting.

The family learned about Gil-Medrano's murder from a friend who was on the phone with him when he was killed.

Gil-Medrano's mother told the NY Daily News her son was on his way to a friend's place to record music when he was killed.

Police say Gil-Medrano was a member of the street gang 800 YGz (Young Gunnerz), and his murder was in retaliation for the shooting death of 13-year-old Jaryan Elliot hours earlier.

Lil Durk's fiancée, India Cox reportedly exchanged gunfire in a shootout with several home invaders near Atlanta on Sunday morning, July 11.

According to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, both Lil Durk, 28, and India, 26, discharged their firearms. But sources say only India fired her weapon.

The couple's toddler daughter was in the home at the time, but she was uninjured.

Prince Williams/ATLPics.net

Durk, real name Durk Banks, is awaiting attempted murder charges in Atlanta and is prohibited from owning or discharging a firearm.

The couple allegedly awoke to the sound of intruders breaking into their rented mansion at 5 a.m. in the Chateau Elan neighborhood of Braselton, Ga., about an hour northeast of Atlanta.

After they exchanged gunfire with the suspects, the intruders fled the home and remain at large. No injuries were reported.

Police say the home invasion was not random and the couple was targeted.

The home break-in occurred hours after federal agents allegedly "raided" Durk's home following a shooting in Atlanta. There were no charges.

Speculation is running rampant that Durk is a federal "snitch" since he was not arrested for having firearms in his home as a convicted felon.

Durk is out on bond following his arrest on attempted murder charges in 2019. Also arrested on the same charge was fellow Chicago gangster rapper King Von, who was killed outside a lounge in downtown Atlanta in November 2020.

Durk's older brother, OTF DThang, born Dontay Banks Jr., 32, was shot and killed following an argument at a strip club near Chicago in June.
