Dash Cam Footage Of Fatal Philando Castile Shooting Released

The nation is still coming to terms over last week’s acquittal of Officer Jeronimo Yanez for fatally shooting St. Paul elementary school cafeteria supervisor Philando Castile. The dash cam video was released Tuesday of the terrifying final moments of Castile’s life. Yanez fired seven deadly shots at Castile after he advised the officer he had a firearm, which was properly registered, in the car.

Following the verdict, Castile’s family announced that they would be filing a civil suit against the St. Anthony police department. Yanez decided to no longer work on the police force.

Castile’s girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds , has yet to determine whether or not she will pursue a civil suit as well.
