6 Jul 2016 - Man is shot and killed during traffic stop. - The man(who is black), Philando Castile - age 39, was shot by the police while he was sitting in the drivers seat of his car following an apparent routine traffic stop. The police officer directly involved has been placed on administrative leave, which is standard procedure for such an incident.

The girlfriend of Castile, who was sitting in the passenger seat, immediately started taking a video of the gruesome scene next to her. On the video recording her voice and that of the officer who shot Castile could be heard saying "I told him not to reach for it! I told him to get his hand out ..." “You told him to get his I.D., sir, his driver’s license. .. ” Oh my God, please don’t tell me he’s dead. Please don’t tell me my boyfriend just went like that,” “Keep your hands where they are.” “Yes I will, sir, I’ll keep my hands where they are,” the girlfriend is then ordered out of the car. The girlfriend then gets out of the car while continuing to record the video. Another officer, in the mean time, removes a child from the back seat of the car. The Police then take the handcuffed girlfriend and the child to the police station.

A couple of days after the shooting the attorney for the officer said that the officer responded to the gun not Castile's race.
