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

Perez had shown her a different book he'd shot, that didn't go all the way through, according to the complaint.

Perez, who is pregnant, shot at a book that Ruiz was holding against his chest while outside their home.

Family members say it was a prank gone wrong and say the couple's 3-year-old daughter watched the shooting. The couple often recorded YouTube videos together-Perez's channel can be seen here-and just an hour before the shooting, Perez had posted on Facebook that they were in the process of making Ruiz his own channel, which would be full of "crazy stuff". Why are you going to use a gun?

Monalisa Perez, 19, was charged with second-degree manslaughter in connection to the death of Pedro Ruiz III, 22, June 28, 2017.

The bullet went through the book and struck Ruiz, killing him. "'Because, we want more viewers, '" his aunt recalled.

She could face 10 years in prison, a $20,000 fine, or both.

"They were in love", Claudia told KVLY.

Another aunt, Claudia Ruiz, said it was a stunt gone awry.

"I don't know why they thought the book was supposed to stop the bullet", she added. Police were able to locate a gold Desert Eagle.50 caliber pistol on the grass near the house and secured the firearm.

"I was standing behind a tree just watching, and I couldn't take it anymore", a neighbor told KDAY about his experience watching a helicopter land in Pedro's front yard and medics race out to assist.

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.
