A 15-year-old TikTok star is set to testify against a second alleged stalker after her father shot and killed a first.

The father of TikToker Ava Majury fatally shot the 18-year-old alleged stalker, who was from Maryland, when he trespassed at their Florida home in July 2021 after he had reportedly been hounding Ava for pictures for months.

In the wake of the incident, another person allegedly began stalking and intimidating Ava at school, according to a spokesperson from her legal team.

The second accused male is from Ava's hometown of Naples, Florida, and is 15 years old, meaning his identity is being withheld.

The younger boy had been in touch with the 18-year-old from Maryland, according to The New York Times, per Fox News, and had allegedly begun intimidating and following Ava by December. Video footage filmed by a classmate showed the 15-year-old shooting a gun at a range, and Ava decided to begin homeschooling out of concern for her safety.

The TikToker's family lawyers filed a stalking case in Collier County court, and her family hopes to obtain an injunction for protection by the start of next week, February 28, so she can return to school.

A spokesperson explained to Fox News: 'The hearing was delayed, and initially they wouldn’t let Ava testify, but she is testifying at this hearing. We’re hoping that’s a big development that could help her in getting the injunction.'

One of Ava's lawyers, Lanny Davis, added that they are hoping to obtain video evidence in connection with the stalking case to further their arguments. In a statement, Davis said: 'She is genuinely afraid for her safety. It is a shame that it too often seems it takes a tragedy for everyone to ask: Why didn’t we act sooner?'

As the case continues to unfold, Ava has expressed hope that her experiences will act as a warning for other people experiencing cyberstalking, harassment or threats of violence online.

'Social media can connect people of all walks of life and create a sense of community, but I’m telling my story so that young people and parents are also aware of the dangers of social media', she said in a post on Instagram.

Ava said she 'could never have imagined' that her posts would result in a stranger showing up at her front door, adding: 'I urge young people and parents to immediately report any threat or signal of violence, and not wait until it’s too late.'

Ava’s parents, Rob and Kim Majury, are encouraging other parents and children to be on the lookout for threatening behaviour online, but assured they 'support [their] daughter's endeavors entirely'.
