Less than 24 hours after the senseless shooting of Alton Sterling, a man was shot while being pulled over for an alleged broken taillight on Wednesday night (July 6) in Falcon Heights, Minn.
His girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, recorded the aftermath of the shooting on Facebook Live as he lay dying in their car.
“Oh my God, please don’t tell me he’s dead,” she says in the graphic video. “Please don’t tell me my boyfriend just went like that.”
Diamond tells the camera that the officer asked to see Philando‘s identification and he told them he had a licensed weapon on him.
He was then reportedly shot four times while reaching for his wallet. Diamond‘s daughter was present. This is still a developing story.
Facebook has since taken the video down.
Celebrities immediately took to Twitter to express their disbelief and outrage.
