(VIDEO) Little girl begs mother to be quite so she ‘don’t get shooted’ after Philando Castile shooting
In the moments after a Minnesota police officer fatally shot Philando Castile, his handcuffed girlfriend began screaming in the back of a patrol car as her 4-year-old daughter begged her to stop.
Squad car video from the July 2016 shooting shows Diamond Reynolds and her daughter in the cruiser, the Star Tribune reported Wednesday. In the video, the young girl repeatedly told her mother to keep quiet.
“Mom, please stop cussing and screaming cause I don’t want you to get shooted,” the girl said. Reynolds responded by asking for a kiss.
“I can keep you safe,” the girl told Reynolds at one point. “It’s OK,” Reynolds said before the girl begins to cry.
The video was among thousands of files released Wednesday by the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. St. Anthony police officer Jeronimo Yanez, 29, was acquitted Friday of manslaughter in Castile’s death.
