At the beginning of 2018, on January 26th exactly, a crazy gunman broke into the house of the Internet star, where she currently lives with Free. The gunman gained entry after breaking a window and firing a shot as he advanced. When the couple heard the shot, they quickly sought shelter in the closet and contacted the police from there. The police attacked the trigger-happy intruder in front of the house when he was already leaving after an unsuccessful search for the house inhabitants. Confronted with the police, the suspect fired another shot, which triggered a reaction shot from the police, who later found him dead next to his car.
The police are still investigating whose gun hit the intruder – the police or perhaps self-inflicted. However, Meg Turney and her lover came out of this experience unscathed, and the gunman’s motive was revealed.
