One suspect that needs medics. Reynolds said that officers had failed to check Castile for a pulse or to see if he was breathing for several minutes after the shooting, and instead comforted the officer who fired the shots. In the dashcam video of the incident, Yanez can be heard being questioned by St. Anthony Police Officer Tressa Sunde within minutes of the shooting, and telling her:. I told him, 'Can I see your license?
I told him not to reach for it and sigh when he went down to grab, I told him not to reach for it clears throat and then he kept it right there, and I told him to take his hands off of it, and then he sigh he had his, his grip a lot wider than a wallet And I don't know where the gun was, he didn't tell me where the fucking gun was, and then it was just getting hinky, he gave, he was just staring ahead, and then I was getting fucking nervous, and then I told him, I know I fucking told him to get his fucking hand off his gun.
According to the official Minnesota Department of Public Safety 's Bureau of Criminal Apprehension BCA transcript of the interview of Yanez and his attorneys Tom Kelly and Robert Fowler, Yanez stated that his justification for the shooting was based on fear for his own life because he believed that Castile's behavior was abusive toward a young girl passenger Reynolds' daughter in the car. According to the local publication City Pages ' description of the BCA conversation, Yanez "could never state definitively Yanez uses "various terms to suggest the presence of a firearm".
Yanez states, "it appeared to me that he was wrapping something around his fingers and almost like if I were to put my hand around my gun. It was dark inside the vehicle And he was pulling it out with his right hand.
In his court testimony almost a year later, Yanez was more definitive, and testified that he was "able to see the firearm in Mr. Castile's hand," and was forced to shoot him.
The gun was found to be in Castile's pocket when paramedics were prepared to load his fatally wounded body into an ambulance. The Hennepin County Medical Examiner's office ruled Castile's death a homicide and said that he had sustained multiple gunshot wounds. The reasonableness of the initial traffic stop, and the facts of what occurred in the seconds of the stop between the end of the pre-stop police dispatcher radio and the beginning of Reynolds' recording were "hotly disputed" almost immediately after the shooting occurred.
This had everything to do with the presence of a gun. In the video recorded shortly after the shooting, Reynolds said that the car was pulled over for a broken taillight. A Castile family attorney, Albert Goins, questioned this account, said that if Yanez actually thought Castile was a robbery suspect, the police would have made a "felony traffic stop" involving "bringing the suspect out at gunpoint while officers are in a position of cover and having them lie on the ground until they can identify who that individual is" rather than an ordinary traffic stop in which officers stop the car and ask the driver to produce documents.
Goins said, "Either [Castile] was a robbery suspect and [Yanez] didn't follow the procedures for a felony stop, or [Castile] was not a robbery suspect and [Yanez] shot a man because he stood at his window getting his information. Kelly confirmed the authenticity of the pre-stop police audio, in which one officer reports that the driver resembled a recent robbery suspect due to his "wide-set nose. Goins said, "I can't imagine that it's reasonable suspicion to make a stop because somebody had a broad nose.

She also called for an independent body to investigate the shooting, expressing skepticism with the state agency that is leading the investigation of the incident, the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, a division of the Department of Public Safety. After a week of peaceful protests and vigils , violence between protesters and police in St. Paul broke out on July 9 and Some people were arrested and 21 officers 15 police officers and six Minnesota State Patrol officers had been injured, one of them seriously.

After the shooting, a number of activists established an encampment outside of the Governor's Residence. On July 18, demonstrators cleared the encampment and moved off the road after police directed them to move, saying that they could continue to protest "as long as it was done on the sidewalk" and did not impede vehicle or pedestrian traffic. The interactions between police and demonstrators were peaceful, and no arrests were made. On July 19, 21 protesters—mostly members of the St.
Paul and Minneapolis teachers' federations—were arrested willingly at a protest in Minneapolis after blocking a street in Minneapolis and refusing orders to disperse.

Prosecutors in the Ramsey County Attorney's Office would decide whether to file charges in the shooting or bring the case to a grand jury. Choi reviewed the evidence with assistance from the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the U. Attorney's office,  a retired deputy chief of police in Irvine, California ,  and a former federal prosecutor.
To justify the use of deadly force, it is not enough, however, for the police officer to merely express a subjective fear of death or great bodily harm. Unreasonable fear cannot justify the use of deadly force. The use of deadly force must be objectively reasonable and necessary, given the totality of the circumstances.
Based upon our thorough and exhaustive review of the facts of this case, it is my conclusion that the use of deadly force by Officer Yanez was not justified, and that sufficient facts exist to prove that to be true. Accordingly, we filed a criminal complaint this morning in Ramsey County.
According to author and former FBI agent Larry Brubaker, who has written two books on officer-involved shootings, "this is the first time an officer has been charged for a fatal shooting in Minnesota in more than cases that spanned over three decades". He had been charged with manslaughter and reckless discharge of a firearm. After five days and more than 25 hours of deliberation, the jury decided that the state had not met its burden for a conviction. Yanez would have faced up to 10 years under Minnesota law if he had been convicted.
The jury that determined Yanez's fate consisted of seven men and five women. Two jurors were black. The day the verdict was announced, the city of St. Anthony announced that "the public will be best served if Officer Yanez is no longer a police officer in our city", and that he would not be returning to the police department from leave after the trial. The terms of this agreement will be negotiated in the near future, so details are not available at this time. In the meantime, Officer Yanez will not return to active duty.
Some 2, protesters marched in the streets, eventually blocking Interstate 94 , where 18 people were arrested, including at least one reporter. Members of the Castile family, who had worked closely with authorities throughout the trial, expressed shock and outrage at the verdict, decrying a loss of faith in the system. Although they had earlier discussed a federal civil rights lawsuit, on June 26, , the family released a joint statement with the city of St.
On June 20, , dashcam footage seen by investigators and members of the courtroom during the trial was released to public. In mid, the Saint Anthony city council adjusted the city's police contract so that financial liability falls to its served communities, rather than Saint Anthony itself.
