The father of an 18-year-old woman who was killed in a movie theater shooting in California confronted the accused shooter during a court appearance.
"Look at me. Look at me!" yelled Dave Goodrich at 20-year-old Joseph Jimenez at the Riverside Hall of Justice on Friday.
"That was my daughter," he continued, as he began tearing up. Several people had to hold the grieving father back at one point during the confrontation, Fox 11 reported.
Jimenez was arrested on suspicion of murder, attempted murder and robbery on Tuesday after the fatal shooting during a screening of "The Forever Purge" at The Crossings Mall Monday evening in Corona.
Rylee Goodrich was in the theater on a first date with social media influencer 19-year-old Anthony Barajas. She died on the scene, while Barajas was taken to a hospital and is on life support.
The couple was found by theater workers cleaning up after the 9:35 p.m. showing of the horror movie.
"She's my baby, my first born," said Danielle Goodrich, Rylee Goodrich’s mother. "And, she got ripped away doing something so innocent, and it breaks my heart.
"Poor Anthony. They were just starting their relationship. He's a beautiful boy, and my heart goes out to his family," she added.
Jimenez was charged with murder and attempted murder on Friday and is eligible for the death penalty if convicted.

How much you wanna bet the killer is “undocumented”?
I wondered if they caught this guy.
Too bad it’s Calif. He won’t get the death penalty he deserves.
A low amount, so when the perp "disappears", the family won't be out too much.
Is Jimenez an illegal alien?
> eligible for the death penalty if convicted <
Well, I just bought a lottery ticket. So I’m eligible for a $5,000,000 prize. It’s more likely I’ll win that prize than this piece of garbage will be executed.
His first name is Joseph. I'd bet he was born here.
Are you aware that people with Latino surnames have lived in the American southwest for more than 400 years?
If I were the father, I would do everything in my power to get him released. A few months after his release, I would track him down, kidnap him, then give him an experience that makes William Wallace’s execution look like a Swedish massage.
If I was the dad.....retribution would be on my schedule someday! And then the POS animal can go rest in the burning fires of HELL!!
Ideally, followed by bang, bang, bang, bang, bang, bang.
Apparently he was a Tik-Tok star, whatever that means.
Only 6 tickets were sold for that showing and nobody heard any gun shots and the bodies not found until janitors came in to clean up???
"A Time to Kill" - 1996
Yeah. Like Sheriff Arpaio.
It’s the cold blooded, senseless nature of the crime that inclines me to that assumption.
Jiminez & Barajas. Could have been cartel or gang related.
Dave Goodrich should be given the right to select what cell mate Joseph Jimenez has to spend time with after he gets a tour of the prison.
Where were the other 3 ticket holders when this went down?
