A Virginia man was acquitted after he shot a YouTube content creator during a filmed prank gone horribly awry earlier this year.

Alan W. Colie, 31, admittedly shot Tanner Cook, 21, in his liver and stomach during a prank inside the Dulles Town Center shopping mall on April 2. He faced one count each of aggravated malicious wounding, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony – malicious wounding, and unlawfully discharging a firearm within a building.

On Sept. 28, jurors in Leesburg found Colie not guilty on the two malicious wounding charges – accepting his self-defense claim.
