Authorities released the graphic dash cam footage of officer Jeronimo Yanez firing seven shots into Philando Castile's car last year, following Yanez's acquittal last week. In the video, Yanez pulls Castile over for a nonworking brake light and to see whether he was involved in an armed robbery a few days earlier. “Sir, I have to tell you that I do have a firearm on me,” Castile tells Yanez just a minute into the traffic stop. “OK, don’t reach for it, then,” Yanez says in the video. “I’m not pulling it out,” Castile says. Yanez subsequently is heard screaming “Don’t pull it out!” Yanez then proceeds to fire seven shots, five of which hit Castile.
