A woman livestreamed the heartbreaking moments after her boyfriend was shot and killed by a cop in Minnesota late Wednesday.
In a Facebook video, Lavish Reynolds claims that the couple were pulled over in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area for a busted taillight and that her boyfriend, identified by WCCO as Philando Castile, was shot four or five times.
A St. Anthony police officer can be seen outside the car, his gun drawn on Castile. Reynolds, who like Castile is black, describes him as Asian.
“I told him not to reach for it,” the cop says as he continues to point his weapon into the vehicle. “I told him to get his hand off it.”
St. Anthony PD confirmed the shooting took place in Falcon Heights, a sleepy St. Paul suburb that hosts the state fair, around 9 p.m.
