The furious mother of the man fatally shot by a Minnesota police officer last year has said she hopes the officer who shot him dies tonight.

Officer Jeronimo Yanez, who fatally shot Philando Castile during a traffic stop last year has been found not guilty on all three charges by a jury consisting of 10 white people and two blacks.

The verdict took over 4 days and it has been reported that the two holdouts were white.

The decision was announced on Friday, nearly a year after the shocking event was partially streamed online.

After the verdict was announced, the victim’s mother, Valerie Castile, reportedly stormed out of the court saying ‘f*** this s***.’

After the verdict was announced the city of Minnesota announced that Officer Yanez was being relieved of his duties.

The city of St. Anthony says it concluded the public ‘will be best served’ if Officer Jeronimo Yanez no longer works for the city.

The statement says the city plans to offer Yanez a ‘voluntary separation’ so he can find another job.
