Shock in US as Two White Police Officers Who Shot Black Man Will Not Be Charged

A statement from the city and the Castiles’ lawyers said the money will be paid with insurance funds, not taxpayer dollars, according to media reports.

On Friday, 29-year-old police officer Jeronimo Yanez was found not guilty in the killing of 32-year-old Castile in July of 2016.

Castile was shot dead during a traffic stop after he told Yanez that he was armed. The shooting gained worldwide attention after Castile's girlfriend Diamond Reynolds live streamed the aftermath of the shooting on Facebook.
