Final moments of YouTuber’s life revealed before he was shot by girlfriend in prank gone wrong

Newly released footage shows the 22-year-old urging his girlfriend to shoot him so that he could see if .50-caliber bullet could go through a book.

The final moments of a YouTuber’s life before he was shot dead by his girlfriend in a prank gone wrong have been revealed.

Pedro Ruiz, 22, had been in a park in Minnesota with his then-pregnant girlfriend Monalisa Perez, 20, when the pair decided to film a ‘crazy’ stunt for their YouTube channels. Newly released footage shows the 22-year-old urging his girlfriend to shoot him so that he could see if .50-caliber bullet could go through a book.

He tells his YouTube followers that he calls himself ‘the crazy Pedro’ and adds: ‘The most trustworthy person that I trust in this world is my girlfriend, Monalisa. So if I die, I’m pretty much ready to go to heaven right now.’

Unfortunately, the stunt went horribly wrong and the bullet went through the book, killing Ruiz. In the transcript from the June 2017 video, Perez told her boyfriend: ‘I can’t do it, babe. I’m so scared’ as she held the Desert Eagle gun – one of the most powerful handguns in the world.

Ruiz tells her, ‘As long as you hit the book, you’ll be fine. Come on,’ as he holds a hardcover encyclopedia to his chest.

Perez responds: ‘Babe, if I kill you what’s gonna happen to my life. Like no this isn’t OK. I don’t want to be responsible.’ As the camera was rolling, she then fired and the bullet went through the book.

Following the shooting, Perez told police on a 911 call that Ruiz had asked her to fire a bullet from a pistol into an encyclopedia as he held it against his body. But the bullet went through the book and fatally wounded the young dad.

Perez, 20, of Redfield, South Dakota, was sentenced earlier this year to 180 days in jail for second-degree manslaughter.

The 20-year-old was pregnant with her second child at the time of Ruiz’s death and their son was born in September. In December, Perez took a plea deal that will allow her to serve out half of her jail term in increments of 30 days per year for the next three years. She is also banned from ever possessing firearms.
