Castile’s funeral comes a week after an extremely tense week where two black men, including Castile, were shot and killed by police and 5 officers in Dallas were shot and killed during a protest. Castile worked at an area school as a nutrition services supervisor. Castile was shot and killed the day after Alton Sterling lost his life at the hands of officers in Baton Rouge.
