The duo were forced to call Austin Police from the enclosed space after the man, identified as New Mexico local Christopher Giles, fired at least one round in their home in the early hours of Monday morning (local time).

Megan Turney and Gavin Free were in bed when Christopher Eric Giles broke into their home on January 26.

Court documents said Turney, a YouTube personality with over 300,000 subscribers, and Free, the face of The Slow Mo Guys, woke up following the sound of gunshots and shattered glass before calling police over the intrusion as they hid in their closet. According to the police, it was these videos that led a man from Albuquerque, NM to resent Free and subsequently drive to Austin to confront the couple.

When cops searched Giles' phone, they found "threatening thoughts were recorded by Giles and directed towards" Free, including "I want Gavin Free to die alone, with no children", the Albuquerque Journal reports.

"I just wanted to say thanks for all the support and concern regarding the recent indecent", Gavin tweeted.

Hopefully Snapchat gets the message and reverses their update , or at least puts out a new update fixing all the complaints. You'll then need to download an Android File Explorer app to find the file on your phone, which you can then install.

They also found evidence that Giles had been planning the "burglary and homicides of Megan Turney and Gavin Free" at his home. Giles died at the scene, and although the Albuquerque search warrant says his injury may have been self-inflicted, an official ruling has not been made.

When Austin Police Officers arrived at the address, they saw a dark colored Lincoln sedan back out of the driveway before a shot was sacked from inside. Noticing a New Mexico license plate, Officer Matthew Jackson ordered Giles to stop. Police described him as "single, lonely and disturbed", in the search warrant. After hearing the gunshot, the officer fired back, killing the suspect, according to Assistant Police Chief Troy Gay. They said security footage shows him searching the home for the residents, a gun in his hand.

Both Turney and Free have taken to social media since the news broke to reassure fans.

Detectives wrote in the complaint it was "apparent Giles' sole intent was to cause harm to someone who resides there", according to the outlet. "It's been a rough time for Meg and myself the last few weeks but we are doing ok".
