Police Shoot And Kill Minnesota Man On Facebook Live

A man has died after being shot by a Minnesota police officer Wednesday night while inside a car with a woman and child, officials said.

The incident in Falcon Heights, a suburb of St. Paul, appeared to be partly documented in a Facebook Live recording posted by a woman in the car, who identified herself as the man’s girlfriend. The video, which was briefly removed from Facebook but later republished with a warning of graphic content, had as of Thursday morning been viewed close to 2 million times.

The deceased has been identified by family as Philando Castile, and police have identified the woman filming the altercation as Diamond Reynolds.
