Castile's girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, and her 4-year-old daughter were in the auto at the time. Reynolds can be heard screaming.
Recently released and sickening dashcam footage of the shooting reveals Castile cooperating with a routine traffic stop and calmly informing the officer that he has a firearm. "And his hand made like a C-shape type, um, type shape and it appeared to me that he wrapping something around his fingers and nearly like if l were to put my uh, hand around my gun like putting my hand up to the butt of the gun". That video showed Reynolds pleading blood-soaked Philando to stay with her, few moments later he died. During the incident, Castile informed Yanez that he was legally carrying a gun after being pulled over for a broken tail light. He then asks for Castile's license and insurance while another officer stands on the passenger side of the auto. The officer, who is Mexican American, asks for proof of insurance and a driver's license. "I know fuckin' I told him to get his fuckin' hand off his gun".
"I didn't want to shoot Mr. Castile", Yanez reportedly said in court. The officer orders Castile not to reach for it and not to pull it out to which Castile replies: "I'm not pulling it out".
Officer Yanez instructs Mr Castile not to pull out his handgun before suddenly drawing his own weapon and firing seven rounds into the vehicle.
As the video shows, it takes a full six minutes after Castile is shot before he is removed from the vehicle and receives medical attention.
And then the police officer shoots him, point blank, seven times.
After the shooting, the video shows Yanez standing at the vehicle window, breathing heavily and cursing repeatedly, with his gun drawn for some time. The video then shows help arriving at the scene.
Yanez is heard shouting at the woman to keep her hands up. "And I had no other option than to take my firearm and, and I shot".
"I'm so tired of being tired, I'm so tired of being sad, I'm so tired of being angry at this system". "You all right? You're not hit any, are you?"
But what happened outside the auto, before Officer Jeronimo Yanez pulled the trigger?
The video includes audio from a microphone Yanez was wearing and a conversation he had with his supervisor about the shooting.
