They shared their lives on YouTube. Then an obsessed fan came calling -- with a 
gun.

        Giles knew the young couple living inside as millions of
        others did.  On YouTube, Gavin Free, 29, and Megan Turney, 30,
        had packaged the most routine life moments -- hiking in the
        woods, eating candy from Japan, playing with a cat -- into
        hundreds of clips. The channels were front row seats to their
        lives, and the content drew in millions of viewers.  They were
        YouTube stars, two among the thousands who have created a new,
        large and cordless subculture of celebrity entertainment.
        Giles fired the gun into the house, shattering glass so he
        could enter, police said.
