Diamond Reynolds agrees to $800,000 settlement stemming from Philando Castile’s death

By Mark Berman,

Diamond Reynolds, who broadcast to the world what happened after a Minnesota police officer fatally shot her boyfriend, Philando Castile, has agreed to a settlement worth $800,000, authorities announced this week.

This agreement comes months after the officer, Jeronimo Yanez, was acquitted in a high-profile trial. He was subsequently dismissed from his police force in St. Anthony, Minn., and that city reached a settlement with Castile’s family.

Reynolds’s settlement still has to be approved by a court, which would mark an end to what would likely be the last major legal chapter stemming from the July 2016 shooting.
