Pregnant Minnesota 19-year-old fatally shoots boyfriend in YouTube stunt gone wrong

In a video stunt gone wrong, an aspiring YouTube star shot her boyfriend in the chest, killing him, police said Wednesday.

The couple were reportedly trying to make a viral clip in which Perez fired a Desert Eagle.50 caliber pistol from around a foot away at a thick, hardback encyclopedia that Ruiz held to his chest.

According to County Attorney James Brue a hardcover encyclopaedia was used while the weapon was a handgun. A med helicopter was called to the scene and people watched as chest compressions on Ruiz were done. Some are still available online.

Monalisa Perez, 19, was charged with second-degree manslaughter in connection to the death of Pedro Ruiz III, 22, June 28, 2017. She said that he said he wanted to do it "because we want more viewers, we want to get famous". Still, she went through with the plan. Perez said she believed the book would stop the bullet since he shot a different book and the bullet did not go all the way through. He set up two cameras to film the whole thing, hoping a video of the risky stunt would go viral.

Perez had taken to Twitter before the incident to iterate that it was not her idea. I said, don't do it, don't do it. Video uploads show the pranks they have pulled on each other. Don't do it. Why are you going to use a gun?

The couple's prank videos usually contained innocent tricks, such as Perez giving Ruiz a donut covered in baby powder.
