Yanez Trial: Law Enforcement Should Be Concerned

They resumed deliberations on Tuesday morning. After Yanez approached the vehicle, Castile informed him that he was carrying a gun.

The shooting drew widespread attention after Castile's girlfriend streamed the gruesome aftermath on Facebook.

No explanation was given for the request.

In his final instructions to the jury, Ramsey County District Judge William H. Leary III pointed that out - and also defined what the jury's legal standard should be to convict Yanez of the individual charges.

That video began only after Castile had already been shot five times.

The video shows the interaction between the two men, the shooting and attempts to revive Castile. Gray defended Yanez's actions as reasonable. So she began recording.

Castile responded, "I was reaching", but before he finished, Yanez, with right hand on his holster, said, "Don't pull it out".

Prosecutors called several witnesses to try to show that Yanez never saw the gun and acted recklessly and unreasonably. Castile had a permit for the weapon. Castile disclosed he was carrying a handgun.

After he shot Castile, Yanez is heard on squad auto video telling a supervisor variously that he didn't know where Castile's gun was, then that he told Castile to get his hand off it.

But during closing arguments on Monday, Yanez's defense team said Castile reached for his gun when he was told not to. Five of the seven shots he fired struck Castile.

Yanez claims he was parked in his squad auto when he saw Castile drive by on July 6. "The 47-year-old Minneapolis man has been wearing a T-shirt with Philando Castile's photo that says "Justice 4 Philando", and "Hands Up Don't Shoot", with the hashtag "#BlackLivesMatter".

The jury deliberating the fate of a Minnesota police officer charged in the fatal shooting of a black motorist has watched replays of two key videos in the case. Officers direct Reynolds out of the vehicle. "That wasn't my intention", Yanez said, according to local outlet WCCO.

Yanez moves away from the camera's view, but can be heard talking. He also cited testimony from first responders who saw Castile's gun in his pocket as he was loaded onto a backboard.

Defense attorneys also argued that Castile was high on marijuana.

Yanez is charged with second-degree manslaughter, punishable by up to 10 years in prison, and with two lesser counts of endangering Reynolds and her daughter for firing his gun into the auto near them. Paulsen added, "Yanez used deadly force as a first option rather than a last resort, and because he was so reckless he's guilty of culpable negligence".

She said she is praying for justice.

She says, "This is no longer about Philando; this is about humanity".

After three white alternates were dismissed after closing arguments, the 12-member jury included two black and ten white people.

Closing arguments were expected at midmorning in the trial of police Officer Jeronimo (yeh-RON'-ih-moh) Yanez.

A Minnesota jury on Monday ended its first day of deliberations without a verdict in the trial of a police officer who fatally shot a black motorist during a traffic stop previous year.

Yanez faces one count of second-degree manslaughter and two counts of risky discharge of a firearm for endangering the lives of Castile's girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, and her 4-year-old daughter when he fired seven bullets into the vehicle.
