A Georgia man behind a popular series of firearms videos on YouTube has been found shot to death at his place of work, a weapons design firm.

FOX News Radio’s Eben Brown reports:

Audio clip:

Keith Ratliff, from outside Atlanta, was the man behind FPSRussia on YouTube, which depicted a man with a Russian accent demonstrating high-powered firearms in a coy manner. Investigators say Ratliff was found dead at his job, at a plant that designs and builds military firearms.

(Investigator) “He died from a gunshot wound to the head.”

They’re calling it a homicide. His neighbor Levi Fox is stunned.

(Fox) “They’d come over and talk to us and shoot off some guns. We’d both show off a little.”

Ratliff leaves behind and wife and young son. His YouTube channel has a half-billion views.
