On the evening of July 6, 2016, St. Anthony police officer Jeronimo Yanez stopped a white Oldsmobile driven by Philando Castile in Falcon Heights. Also in the car were Castile's girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, and her young daughter. Just one minute later, Yanez fired seven shots into the vehicle, fatally wounding Castile. This is a breakdown of key events shown in the police dashcam video. This article contains graphic content and language.
The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension said that it was preparing to release the results of its monthslong probe into the shooting death of Philando Castile, including dashcam footage from Officer Jeronimo Yanez's squad car.
