FPS Russia operator shot

Nothing about this surprises me

Operator of popular YouTube channel found shot to death in... | www.ajc.com

One of the operators of a popular YouTube channel promoting high-powered guns and explosives was found shot to death last week in northeast Georgia.
Keith Ratliff, 32, was found dead at 5:45 p.m. Thursday on Hayes Road in Carnesville, said Franklin County Sheriff Steve Thomas in a press release.
Ratliff, of Frankfort, Ky., had been shot once in the head, and his death is being investigated as a homicide. He had been dead for some time when the body was discovered, said Thomas.
The GBI has been called in to assist in the investigation, and Ratliff’s body was taken to the GBI Crime Lab in Atlanta for an autopsy.
Ratliff, along with Kyle Lamar Myers, who appears in the popular online videos, operate the “FPSRussia” YouTube channel, which has 3.4 million subscribers. Videos posted on the channel have racked up more than a half-billion views. According to YouTube, FPSRussia is the ninth-most popular channel on the website.
Ratliff also operated a company out of Carnesville called FPS Industries. In video gamer jargon, FPS stands for first person shooter.

Why is that?

I was always expecting one of those people to be horribly injured by shrapnel from one of their moronically-conducted tannerite explosions, but not murdered.

It wasn't the "russian" guy (who isn't actually russian), it was his business partner.
