He had been on life support in hospital since Monday’s shooting before passing away on Saturday, aged just 19.
Anthony was shot in the eye and TMZ reported that authorities have a suspect, who they say faces multiple charges.
Anthony had developed a huge fan base on TikTok, under the itsanthonymichael name, with nearly a million followers.
The date of social media influencer Rylee Goodrich, 18, was shot in the head and died instantly in the incident, which took place at a movie theater in Corona, Calif.
Authorities have reportedly said the shooting does not appear to have been provoked as their suspect has no connection to Anthony or Rylee.
Corona Police said in a statement on Saturday: “The Corona Police Department was informed of the death of Anthony Barajas early this morning. We send our thoughts and condolences to his family and friends. “
A GoFundMe for Anthony has raised over $ 74,000 to cover medical bills, nearly tripling its original goal, after being started by Barajas’ family.
Fund organizer Julia Barajas wrote: “Anthony was the light of so many peoples [sic] lives and there are hard times ahead, but we have amazing family and friends to get through this. “
Anthony’s content includes clips documenting family vacations and comedy skits, as well as thoughts on past relationships and videos of him with friends.
In his latest video, posted days before filming, Anthony said he was on vacation with his family and jokingly asked everyone in his family about how the vacation was going.
