In July 2016, police officer Jeronimo Yanez shot Philando Castile during a traffic stop. Yanez was charged with manslaughter. Reporters from MPR News followed the case, beginning with the traffic stop, in the podcast "74 Seconds."
Seventy-four seconds is the amount of time that elapsed between the moment Yanez turned on his squad car lights to the moment he fired the seventh and final shot into Castile's car.
