Charges: Woman fatally shot boyfriend in YouTube stunt

A Teen Was Charged With Killing Her Boyfriend During A Failed YouTube Stunt

A Teen Was Charged With Killing Her Boyfriend During A Failed YouTube Stunt

"I said, don't do it, don't do it", Claudia Ruiz told Valley News Live. "Why?' 'Because, we want more viewers'".

Pedro Ruiz, 22, and his girlfriend, Monalisa Perez, orchestrated a stunt that they would then post to YouTube in the hopes of making a viral video.

It's not clear where/how Pedro got a hold of a.50 caliber handgun - we're assuming it was a Desert Eagle - but it sounds like he even told his aunt about the stunt before going through with it.

Perez had uploaded several YouTube videos which featured her and Ruiz, many of which involved doing "pranks", "stunts", and "challenges".

Ruiz was declared dead at the scene.

Some were harmless like a powdered donut topped with baby powder. Perez says that eventually Ruiz convinced her to shoot the book.

According to a criminal complaint, the 19-year-old Perez told authorities Ruiz wanted to make a YouTube video of her shooting a bullet into a book he was holding against his chest.

"I don't know why they thought the book was supposed to stop the bullet", she added. Perez, who was charged with second-degree manslaughter, is also now pregnant with a boy due in September.

Neighbors say around 30 people watched from behind this mound as Monalisa came out of the home, screaming and in panic after shooting her boyfriend of 5-years in the chest.

The couple's 3-year-old daughter witnessed the shooting, according to WDAY.

"Everyone was crying. I just couldn't take it anymore so I had to go back home", neighbor Wayne Cameron said. It was just a prank gone wrong.

Perez is being held in jail and will appear in court by video this week.

"They were in love".
