Man dies after officer-involved shooting during traffic stop in Minnesota
A traffic stop in a Minnesota town leaves one man dead, in the second, fatal officer-involved shooting in two days, across the country.
32-year-old Philando Castile was shot several times by a police officer, after according to his girlfriend, he was pulled over for a busted tail light.
Castile later died at a local hospital.
Castile's girlfriend Lavisha Reynolds was in the car with her young daughter at the time of the incident.
She livestreamed the aftermath of the shooting on Facebook, in a video that shows Castile covered in blood.
Reynolds says Castile told the officer he was licensed to carry a weapon, but when he started to put his hands up, he was shot several times in the arm.
Valerie Castile, Philand's mother, tells CBS Minnesota her son was a cafeteria supervisor at J.J. Hill Montessori School in St. Paul.
The officer involved has been placed on administrative leave.
The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is investigating.
