Aspiring YouTuber Accidentally Shoots Her Boyfriend Dead In Failed Stunt

  • Minnesota woman charged with fatally shooting boyfriend in failed YouTube video stunt

Right before pulling the trigger, Perez wrote a haunting tweet saying she knew it was the most risky video to date. 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. "It shouldn't have happened at all".

She now faces charges of second degree manslaughter.

MonaLisa Perez, 20, remains in jail after shooting her boyfriend Pedro Ruiz at short range on Monday, the StarTribune reports. The couple's three-year-old child and around 30 onlookers watched as Perez, one foot away, fired the bullet into Ruiz's chest.

An aunt of the 22-year-old father told local news station WDAY-TV that her nephew informed her about the stunt and she questioned his intentions. She reportedly called 911 immediately after the shooting and told the dispatcher she had accidentally shot her boyfriend in the chest.

Perez also happened to be pregnant, and is now facing 2nd degree murder charges and is set to appear in court on Wednesday.

The couple's nascent channel, launched in March, now counts 300 subscribers and 3,000 views.

Cosby buoyant as jury deliberates
Jurors asked Wednesday evening to rehear testimony from the Cheltenham police detective who interviewed Cosby in January 2005. The jury began deliberating Cosby's fate late on Monday afternoon following a six-day trial in Norristown, Pennsylvania.

After the shooting, Perez told a sheriff's deputy that it was Ruiz who pushed for the video to be made.

The two were trying to achieve YouTube fame by pranking one another.

They had a GoPro on a auto, along with another camera on a ladder recording the incident.

Their latest video, posted on Monday, started off with Perez venting about their fight, but things seemed brighter when they later went to the county fair, where Ruiz tried a few stunts.

"Imagine when we have 300,000 subscribers", Perez says in the last video the couple made together. "I said, 'Don't do it".

"Ms Ruiz said: "(Mr Ruiz) had told me about that idea and I said, 'Don't do it. When she asked why he would use a gun, he replied: "Because, we want more viewers".
