Case file in Philando Castile shooting released, dash cam video shows shooting – Minneapolis Star Tribune

Authorities on Tuesday released graphic dashcam footage of officer Jeronimo Yanez firing seven shots into Philando Castile’s car last year, killing him as viewers watched the aftermath on Facebook Live.

The video and other data collected in the investigation was released following Yanez’s acquittal last Friday in the July 6 killing that thrust Minnesota into the national debate over police use of force and racial profiling.

The video released by the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) and Ramsey County Attorney’s office starts about 9:05 p.m. as Yanez activates his squad lights to pull Castile over on Larpenteur Avenue near Fry Street in Falcon Heights for a nonworking brake light, and to see if he is the suspect in an armed robbery from four days earlier. Radio traffic said Yanez pulled over Castile because of they “just look like people that were involved in a robbery” because of Castile’s “wide set nose.”
