Castile Shooting Video Released

The officer who fatally shot Philando Castile during a traffic stop a year ago fired within seconds of learning that Castile was armed, according to a video recording released publicly on June 20.

On Tuesday, Minnesota authorities released the dash cam footage of the deadly encounter between Minnesota police officer Jeronimo Yanez and black motorist Philando Castile.

When the traffic stop began, the two men interacted calmly. But notably, the comedian did take time to offer some extended commentary on one subject: the verdict handed down about Philando Castile's fatal shooting at the hands of police.

She started live-streaming on Facebook after the shots were fired, capturing Yanez yelling, "I told him not to reach for it!" and a bleeding Castile saying, "I wasn't reaching for it". "He didn't tell me where the f-- gun was".

After informing Castile why he had been pulled over and asking for his license and registration, Castile informed the Yanez that he was armed.

On July 6, 2016, Philando Castile, a black man, was pulled over in a St. Paul, MN, suburb for having a busted taillight.

The conversation lasts just eight seconds, with Yanez interrupting twice saying, "Don't pull it out". He then unholstered his gun and pushed it into the auto.

"Don't pull it out", Yanez says again, reaching into the vehicle with his left hand, while pulling his gun from the holster with his right.

This is also what Castile's fiance Diamond Reynolds relayed in the Facebook Live video she began streaming just moments after the shots were fired, which went viral across the US. Castile died not long after.

Amid news that a Minnesota police officer was acquitted of manslaughter in the killing of Philando Castile, actor Michael B. Jordan and free-agent National Football League quarterback Colin Kaepernick have weighed in - and the latter has made a damning declaration.

Jurors who ultimately acquitted Yanez of all charges he faced in the case watched the video, which picked up audio from Yanez' uniform, multiple times throughout the trial.

Kauser would later say that he was "absolutely" surprised when Yanez opened fire.

But juror Dennis Ploussard said the dash camera doesn't show what Yanez saw from his point of view standing next to the auto window. Unlike Reynolds' video, the squad-car video shows the situation's quick escalation and the shooting itself.

Yanez then radios for help, and once additional officers arrive minutes later, they pull Castile's body out of the vehicle and attempt to render aid.

The evidence from the trial of Officer Jeronimo Yanez was released Tuesday. He says Castile was "gunned down like a rabid animal".

After the shooting, Yanez can be heard screaming, "Don't move!" and "I told him not to reach for it!" "And he was pulling it out with his right hand". "I'm sure for the rest of his life he's going to remember this". Days after the verdict, the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension made public files related to the case.

An attorney representing Yanez did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment. It does not show what happened inside the vehicle or what Yanez, who is Latino, saw.

"The way the law states is he didn't comply to his three commands", Ploussard said. The jury was shown the dashcam video during the trial.
