Philando Castile Shooting Video Shows Girl Begging Mom To Also Not “Get Shooted” By Police


Minutes after Philando Castile was shot by a Minnesota officer, his girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, sat handcuffed in the back of a patrol car with her weeping 4-year-old daughter.

Both had been passengers in the car when Castile was shot by police officer Jeronimo Yanez, mere inches from the seven shots fired into the stopped vehicle. Video released by investigators on Tuesday show Reynolds and her daughter crying after the shooting as the 4-year-old pleads with her mother to calm down so she also won’t be shot by police.

“Mom, please stop cussing and screaming because I don’t want you to get shooted,” she tells her mother.

Reynolds shifts in her seat with her hands behind her back.

“I could keep you safe,” she adds.

The emotional footage from inside the patrol car is one in a series of videos and recordings released Tuesday by the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, just days after Yanez was found not guilty of second-degree manslaughter Castile’s shooting death.

Investigators have also released interviews and reports into the July 2016 shooting. Among the videos released is detectives’ interview with Reynolds immediately after the shooting, where she tells officers she wanted them to return her cell phone and go to the hospital to see Castile.
