St. Anthony police officer who shot Philando Castile placed back on leave


The City of St. Anthony has placed the officer who fatally shot Philando Castile back on administrative leave "after reviewing concerns and other feedback from the community" about his reinstatement last week.

Officer Jeronimo Yanez returned to duty Aug. 17, a decision that drew widespread outcry and protest outside the Police Department's headquarters.

The city issued a statement Wednesday on its website noting that the move has been reversed.
