NAPLES, Fla. – The family of 14-year-old TikTok star Ava Majury has spoken out after an alleged stalker showed up with a gun at their home in Naples last summer.
Ava’s father, Rob Majury, said he shot his daughter’s stalker after he fired a bullet through their front door early in the morning of July 10. The family said Eric Justin was the one who showed up with gun.
Leading up to the shooting, the family said Justin was obsessed with Ava. Justin sent her hundreds of texts. The family said they gave Ava permission to sell two selfies to Justin that she posted on social media.
Justin then requested erotic pictures and her father Rob said he told him not to contact Ava.
“I had the opportunity to actually text this person and say, she is a minor and you need to stop contacting her and we will notify the authorities,” Rob said.
NBC2 reported that someone had shot and killed a person at the Raffia Reserve. Now Ava’s father, a retired cop, is talking about how he shot Justin to protect his daughter.
“That’s when I took action and neutralized the threat,” Rob said.
Professor Dr. David Thomas of FGCU Forensic Research said Majury’s actions were justifiable under your basic law.
“If a person fears for their life, for great bodily harm and or for death from another, they have the right to defend themselves with the same force so that they may be commensurate with the force of death. that amount to stave off that threat,” said Thomas.
The Majury family has moved and Ava is currently homeschooled. She recently posted on instagram that “I urge young people and parents to immediately report any threats or signs of violence and don’t wait until it’s too late.”
