In a video that was supposed to make them famous, Pedro Ruiz reportedly instructed his partner Mona Lisa Perez to fire a round into a book he was holding, thinking the pages would stop the bullet.

The Norman County Sheriff's office says its deputies are investigating a shooting.

'I wish they wouldn't have done it. "It shouldn't have happened at all", Ruiz's aunt Claudia told Valley News Live.

Perez was charged with second-degree manslaughter and is being held until a court appearance Wednesday.

Celebrity: The couple hoped that the stunt would make them YouTube celebrities.

"He had told me about [the] idea and I said, "don't do it".

Perez allegedly used a gold Desert Eagle fifty caliber pistol found at the scene to shoot Ruiz.

Perez is said to be seven-months pregnant with the couple's second child.

Neighbors said about 30 people watched from behind a mound as Perez came out of the home, screaming and in panic after shooting her boyfriend of 5 years. They were in love, they loved in each other. 'I wish he would've just done another prank.
