Share

Authorities have released police dashcam video of a Minnesota cop firing several shots at motorist Philando Castile during a 2016 traffic stop - just days after the officer was acquitted by a jury. The officer, who is Mexican American, asks for proof of insurance and a driver's license. "Don't reach for it then", Yanez says, while Castile assures him he isn't trying to.

Philando Castile was a beloved cafeteria worker at an elementary school.

According to a transcript released Tuesday, Yanez said he thought that if Castile had "the guts and audacity" to smoke marijuana in front of the child and "risk her lungs and risk her life" with secondhand smoke, then Castile didn't care about him either.

"Good", Yanez replies, telling him that the reason why he pulled him over is because the brake light to the auto is out.

The shooting first gained national attention when Reynolds streamed the aftermath of the encounter on Facebook Live, detailing how Castile was shot during a routine traffic stop.

The shooting on July 6 previous year gained widespread attention because Mr Castile's girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, livestreamed its gruesome aftermath on Facebook. His girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, took to Facebook Live to show the latter part of the incident with Yanez.
