Teen TikTok Star’s Ex-Cop Dad Defends Killing Her Stalker

Teen TikTok Star’s Ex-Cop Dad Defends Killing Her Stalker

Rob Majury shot Eric Rohan Justin, 18, after the teen turned up to his home with a shotgun trying to find his 15-year-old daughter Ava

A TikTok star's dad has defended killing his daughter's stalker who turned up at the family home after paying for her selfies.

Erin Rohan Justin, 18, was shot dead by Rob Majury, a retired police officer, when he arrived at their house in Naples, Florida, searching for social media star Ava Majury.


Justin travelled from Maryland and was in possession of a gun. Ava's friends had sold him her phone number and other personal information.

According to the MailOnline, he'd also paid 15-year-old Ava $300 (£220) for two selfies.

Speaking about her contact with him to ABC, she said: "After talking to both my parents, I thought it would be mutual if I got in contact with him directly.

"I said, 'hey, can you stop going through my friends and stop contacting people for information about me, just come straight to me and you can purchase it all from me.'"

Rob got involved when Justin started to ask for explicit content, reminding him that she was a minor and told him to stop contacting his daughter.

Despite blocking him, he carried on sending money to Ava before showing up at their home.

Now, Rob has defended his actions and told ABC: "There was no second guessing, there was no time to rethink my actions. I reacted. I acted as best as I could under the duress and stress I was put under.

"Someone came to kill me. I had to do what I had to do to protect my family and I made sure of it."

Justin, who had a shotgun and multiple rounds of ammunition, blasted the front door open at 4.30am 10 July 2021.

Justin's gun jammed and he ran away. Former Jersey City police officer Rob grabbed his own gun and stood guard at the door in case Justin returned, which he did a short while later, the New York Times reports.

Rob demanded that Justin drop the gun. Justin instead pointed it at Rob, and Rob shot him.

A decision was made for the family to move house and Ava is now being homeschooled. She is also being allowed to stay on TikTok, where she says she can earn over $1,700 (£1,250) for one video.

Ava told the New York Times: "I have three TikTok accounts, so I could have one brand come to me and be like, ‘Oh, I’ll do $1,000 for one video on your main account,’ and I’ll be like, ‘Oh great, I have two other accounts that are different types of people on there.'

"So altogether, I’m making $1,700 off just my name, because I opened up three accounts rather than just building off one."

Rob says he was advised by police that he is protected by Florida's stand your ground law, allowing people threatened with force to respond in kind, and he has not been prosecuted.

A TikTok spokesperson told the New York Times the company is 'deeply invested in the safety and well-being of our community' and uses tools to protect users under the age of 16.
