Woman live-streams the aftermath of a police shooting in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

A woman live streamed the shocking moments after her boyfriend was shot and killed by a cop near Minneapolis on Wednesday. In the Facebook Live video, Lavish Reynolds claims that the couple were pulled over for a busted tail light and that her boyfriend, Philando Castile, was shot four or five times. According to Lavish Reynolds, Castile told the officer he was carrying a permitted firearm and had been reaching for his wallet before the officer opened fire. “Please no, don’t let him be gone. Why?!” Reynolds screams on her video as Castile, 32, breathes in his final breathes in the driver’s seat of his car with blood running across his shirt. In the video, a St. Anthony police officer can e seen outside the car with his gun drawn on Castile. Reynolds described the police officer as Asian. “I told him not to reach for it,” the cop says as he continues to point his weapon into the vehicle. “I told him to get his hand off it.” Near the end of the Facebook live stream, Reynolds starts to scream as she sits handcuffed in the back of a police car with her young daughter. You can hear Reynolds' daughter saying, "It’s OK, mama,” while her mother pleads for help from Facebook viewers. “It’s OK, I’m right here with you.” St. Anthony cops confirmed the shooting took place in Falcon Heights, a St. Paul suburb. Celebrities such as Ava DuVernay and Patton Oswalt tweeted their outrage as #FalconHeightsShooting started trending on social media. Related: What do you think?
