  • Minnesota father shot dead by pregnant girlfriend after YouTube stunt goes horribly wrong

MonaLisa Perez, 19, was arrested Monday night after she fatally shot her boyfriend, 22-year-old Pedro Ruiz, in the chest while they were making a YouTube video at the couple's house in Norman County, not far from Fargo, North Dakota.

However, Claudia Ruiz continued, her nephew was shot in the chest with the couple's 3-year-old daughter nearby.

She said the incident was recorded and she gave the deputy two cameras. It was just a prank gone wrong.

On June 26th, Perez tweeted about the stunt, which she said was Ruiz's idea. He was later pronounced dead at the scene.

"I don't know why they thought the book was supposed to stop the bullet", said Pedro's aunt Claudia Ruiz.

If convicted, Perez could face a maximum of ten years in prison, or a fine of $20,000, or both. Ruiz convinced Perez to participate in the stunt by showing her a different book he had shot, and the bullet did not go all the way through. She's now in police custody and was schedule to appear in court today (June 28) for a manslaughter charged. Sheriff Jeremy Thornton said Wednesday said she'll remain in jail and will be connected by video to a Norman County court proceeding on Wednesday afternoon, according to the Minnesota Star-Tribune.

The couple was filming the stunt for YouTube in an attempt to become famous, and had filmed other stunts previously, Fox9 reported.

He had shown her a book he had previously fired at with a gun to prove the bullet would not travel all the way through.
