The woman who livestreamed the shooting of Philando Castile has been arrested


Diamond Reyolds, the woman who livestreamed the fatal police shooting of her boyfriend Philando Castile last year, has been arrested in a reported assault involving two other women, authorities said Friday. 

The women were arrested Thursday after a woman said she was attacked and hit in the head with a hammer, police Steve Linders said. The victim was hospitalized with serious head injuries but was able to identify the three suspects, the Associated Press reported.

The police report doesn't detail Reynold's alleged involvement in the attack, and Linders said charges are still pending. Reynold's lawyer declined to comment.

Reynold's found herself in an unexpected spotlight in July 2016 when she had used Facebook Live to record the aftermath of the fatal shooting of her boyfriend, Philando Castile, who had a permit to carry a weapon. The 32-year-old black man was shot by a police officer at a traffic stop in Minnesota. 

After the final shot, Reynolds screamed, "You just killed my boyfriend!"

Castile moaned and uttered his final words: "I wasn't reaching for it," referring to the gun in his car.

On Monday,  Jeronimo Yanez, the police officer who shot and killed Castile, pleaded not guilty to second-degree manslaughter and two other charges.
