Philando Castile and his family were allegedly pulled over for a broken taillight. Castile had a CHL which allowed him to carry a gun. While reaching for his license, the police officer shot him four times in front of his family. After the shooting, Castile’s girlfriend, Lavish Reynolds, who was in the passenger seat, streamed the entire aftermath on facebook.
Reynolds was taken into police custody, and claims to have been deprived of food and water, and also separated from her 4-year-old daughter. Although there were statements made of her release, Reynolds said she was not released until 5am.
