We must warn you - this video may be considered graphic and disturbing.
The video footage is from the dashboard camera of the police cruiser of St. Anthony Police Department officer Jeronimo Yanez, who was found not guilty on Friday of second-degree manslaughter in the July 2016 shooting death of Philando Castile.
Officer Jeronimo Yanez said in an interview following the fatal traffic stop that Castile's apparent willingness to use the drug in front of his young daughter and girlfriend led Yanez to believe that the 32-year-old posed a serious threat.
The video shows the mundane moments that led up to the shooting: Yanez pointing out that Castile's brake lights were broken, Castile calmly telling the officer that there was a legally registered gun in the auto.
"You'll also see the officer physically tried to restraint the driver, which is not a fact that's been mentioned much, and reaches in with his left arm to push Mr. Castile's hand away from the gun", Kelly said.
Mr Castile reassures the officer "I'm not pulling it out", before Officer Yanez repeats "Don't pull it out" and then fires into the auto as Miss Reynolds screams.
The footage shows Officer Jeronimo Yanez approaching the vehicle and politely telling Mr Castile his brakelights are out.
Despite telling Castile and Reynolds "OK", it seems apparent that Yanez becomes uncomfortable with the situation, and places his hand on his own holster.
Castile: "Sir, I have to tell you, I do have a firearm on me".
Five of those shots hit Castile.
He then asked Castile to produce his licence and insurance. They pull Castile out of the vehicle and give him CPR. 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". 'I thought I was gonna die, ' Yanez told the investigators.
The video footage had been played in Yanez's trial, but was not publicly released until Tuesday afternoon. The city added that it was negotiating a voluntary separation agreement that would help Yanez transition into another career. The video was shown to the jury that acquitted Yanez of manslaughter charges last week.
