A Minnesota woman has been charged over the fatal shooting of her boyfriend, in what authorities say was a social media stunt gone wrong.

Monalisa Perez, 19, was booked into county jail after shooting at Pedro Ruiz as he held a book to his chest, believing it would stop the bullet.

Maybe it's just me, but if I was filming this for YouTube I'd watch one of the many YouTube videos that clearly show that a book is very unlikely to stop a bullet before I did it with a person.  And promptly decide to not do it.

They expected a book to stop a desert eagle?  It'd take a hell of a book just to stop my .40 S&W, let alone a 50 cal desert eagle.

Mother nature was a little late though, the girl is pregnant.

I would think even the engine block of a truck would struggle to stop a .50 cal bullet at 30cm range...

No kidding! Put a 180gr JHP in that .40 and very few book size items will stop it.  Hell, 2 feet of ballistics gel may not stop it.
