Authorities released dash-camera footage showing the moment Officer Jeronimo Yanez fatally shot Philando Castile, a black gun owner, Tuesday afternoon.

Yanez walks up to the car and tells Castile he pulled him over for a broken tail light, video shows. Castile tells Yanez that he has a firearm, prompting Yanez to slowly put his hand closer to his own gun.

WATCH:

“Don’t reach for it then,” Yanez tells Castile. “Don’t pull it out.”

Castile responds by saying he’s not reaching for his gun, and his girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, says the same.

Yanez then fires seven shots into the car, while his own partner jumps away.

“I wasn’t reaching,” Castile says after being shot.

“Fuck, Fuck,” Yanez says repeatedly.
