Vlogger, Monalisa Perez, from Minnesota, was arrested after fatally shooting her boyfriend, 22-year-old Pedro Ruiz, while filming a stunt for their YouTube channel. The young woman was charged with second-degree manslaughter, a crime which carries the maximum sentence of 10 years in prison, a fine of $20,000, or both.

It seems that the shooting was an accident and that Ruiz actually helped plan it.

Perez reportedly called 911 and told authorities she had accidentally shot her boyfriend. The police then responded to the couple’s house in Norman County and found Ruiz with a single gunshot wound to the chest. They attempted to save the man, but he died on the scene.

Perez, who is pregnant, says that Ruiz was excited by the idea of her shooting a book while he was holding it. He believed the book would stop the bullet, and may have even tested his theory on several other books. This time, however, the bullet unfortunately, did not stop. Earlier that same night, Perez tweeted about the upcoming segment:

Me and Pedro are probably going to shoot one of the most dangerous videos ever HIS idea not MINE

Perez started the couple’s YouTube vlog in March of this year to record the lives of a young couple who are also teen parents. Since then, they’ve uploaded a number of videos which often feature “stunts,” “challenges,” and “pranks.” The couple’s 3-year-old daughter also occasionally makes an appearance in their videos.

The couple recorded their fatal stunt on two cameras which are now being held as evidence by authorities. Perez told authorities that, after being shown another book which a bullet had failed to go through, she had agreed to shoot from a foot away while Ruiz held the book to his chest. Perez used a .50-caliber Desert Eagle firearm.

Ruiz’s aunt, Claudia, had heard about the stunt idea from Pedro and begged her not go through with it. She’s especially broken-hearted by how it all turned out:

“They were in love, they loved each other. It was just a prank gone wrong. It shouldn’t have happened like this. It shouldn’t have happened at all.”

In their final video, Perez said thay she was 25-weeks pregnant and looking forward to raising another child with Ruiz.

They were planning to name the little boy Pedro, after his father.
