Ramsey County Attorney Choi to announce update in Castile shooting
Ramsey County Attorney John Choi is expected to hold a Wednesday morning news conference to provide an update on the officer-involved shooting death of Philando Castile.
Castile, 32, was fatally shot July 6 by St. Anthony police officer Jeronimo Yanez during a traffic stop in Falcon Heights. A video recorded by his girlfriend, showing him bleeding in the car while the officer stood nearby, touched off widespread outrage.
Choi’s office has been reviewing evidence collected by the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. Choi has not said whether he’ll ask a grand jury to decide whether Yanez should face criminal charges, or whether he will make the decision himself.
