The video shows the man bleeding from gunshot wounds as his girlfriend films from the driver’s seat. The police officer “shot him three times because we had a busted tail light,” the woman filming can be heard saying.
Officials have not officially released the victim’s name, but his family identified him as Philando Castile, local news station WCCO reported. He was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis and relatives told The Star-Tribune he died at the hospital.
The 10-minute video of the incident was posted to Facebook by user Lavish Reynolds, and was removed for several hours Wednesday night before being reposted with a warning about its graphic content.
While filming, the woman explains that the officer asked her boyfriend for his license and registration, and that he told the officer he had a pistol and was licensed to carry.
In the video, the woman describes the police as shooting Castile between three and five times. An officer in the video can be heard saying, “I told him not to reach for it. I told him to get his hand out”. Then, officers can be heard ordering the girlfriend out of her car and seen escorting her into the back seat of a police car.
“He doesn’t have no records or anything,” Castile’s girlfriend can be heard telling the police. “He’s never been in jail, anything. He’s not a gang member, anything.”
A police officer can be seen in the background holding a young girl who is presumed to be the woman’s daughter, according to the Star Tribune. …
The officer involved in the shooting was placed on paid administrative leave.
On social media, Philando Castile also was interested in social justice. On his Facebook page, Philando Castile posted a photo of the Black Panther Movement and wrote, “BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY!” In another post, he passed on a Tupac Shakur quote, “They got money for wars but can’t feed the poor.”
