FILE - In this July 25, 2016, file photo, a memorial including a photo of Philando Castile is attached to the gate to the governor's residence where protesters demonstrated in St. Paul, Minn. Attorneys for Jeronimo Yanez, the Minnesota police officer accused of fatally shooting Castile say Castile's gun was accessible and that he was reaching for it when he was killed. A memo filed Tuesday, Feb. 7, 2017, in Ramsey County District Court contradicts prosecutors' claims that St. Anthony Officer Yanez didn't see the weapon and made conflicting statements about it.

New video shows Diamond Reynold's daughter pleading with her mother to stay quiet after her boyfriend, Philando Castile, is fatally shot by police officer Jeronimo Yanez.

"Please don't scream because I don't want you to get shooted ... I can keep you safe," she said. 

ORIGINAL STORY: Days after a Minnesota jury acquitted the police officer who shot and killed Philando Castile of second-degree manslaughter, the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension on Tuesday released dashcam video capturing the traffic stop incident in July 2016.

Until Tuesday, the video has only been seen by those who were present in the courtroom for trial.

Castile's death in 2016 inundated international headlines after his girlfriend had posted a Facebook livestream of the seconds immediately following the shooting. Because no video existed of what exactly had happened inside the car, the jury was left to decide whether or not they believed police officer Jeromino Yanez's claims that Castile was reaching for his gun. As a result, Yanez said he feared for his life.
