A stunt gone wrong has left an aspiring YouTube personality dead and his pregnant girlfriend in jail.
CBS Minnesota has reported that 22-year-old Pedro Ruiz was shot by his girlfriend, 20-year-old Monalisa Perez, as part of a failed attempt to become popular on YouTube.
Supposedly, Ruiz held a book while Perez fired a .50 cal handgun at said book. Though Perez claims that they’d tested the shot prior to filming it, it apparently didn’t work and Ruiz was killed at the scene.
Perez is now in jail and is charged with reckless discharge of a firearm. She is several months pregnant with her second child with Ruiz.
