Falcon Heights, MN - Authorities confirms that a 32-year-old man has died after an officer-involved shooting Wednesday night in Falcon Heights.
Philando Castileâ€™s mother, Valerie Castile, says he died at Hennepin County Medical Center.
St. Anthony Police confirmed the shooting, which happened in the area of Larpenteur Avenue and Fry Street. Castileâ€™s girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, and her daughter were in the car at the time. Reynolds is in custody Wednesday night.
A video circulating on Facebook, filmed by Reynolds, appears to show the aftermath of the shooting.
Reynolds says in the video that they were pulled over for a broken tail light. Police asked Castile for his license and registration. As he was reaching for his wallet, she says Castile informed officers that he had a firearm in his possession, and a conceal-and-carry permit.
Reynolds says in the video that an officer then shot her boyfriend four times.
Valerie Castile says her son was a cafeteria supervisor at J.J. Hill Montessori School in St. Paul. The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is investigating.
