Philando Castile shooting: Minnesota officer 'did what he had to do,' attorney says

  Philando Castile shooting: Minnesota officer 'did what he had to do,' attorney says A Minnesota police officer who shot and killed a black driver just after the man told him he had a gun "did what he had to do," a defense attorney argued Monday. Officer Jeronimo Yanez fatally shot Philando Castile, a 32-year-old cafeteria worker, during a traffic stop on July 6, 2016. The shooting drew widespread attention because Castile’s girlfriend livestreamed the aftermath on Facebook.AUTHORITIES IDENTIFY OFFICER JERONIMO YANEZ AS MAN WHO FATALLY SHOT BLACK MAN IN MINNESOTAProsecutors earlier argued Yenez never saw Castile with a gun, and had plenty of options that did not involve shooting Castile.

All eastbound lanes on the San FranciscoOakland Bay Bridge are currently shut down, according to California Highway Patrol officials. (KGOTV).

Three lanes of the Bay Bridge were blocked on the eastbound Bay Bridge before Treasure Island Friday morning, after an accident involving a big-rig that resulted in a 50-gallon fuel spill. Meanwhile, the hashtag # baybridge was heavily used.

All eastbound lanes of the Bay Bridge were reopened around 9:20 a.m. Sunday after an investigation of an officer-involved shooting halted traffic and stranded motorists for hours, the California Highway Patrol announced.

Two eastbound lanes reopened around 8:30 a.m. and the remaining three lanes were open by 9:18 a.m., according to the San Francisco Department of Emergency Management.

CHP officers initially responded to a collision about a mile west of the toll plaza involving two vehicles in the eastbound lanes around 3:25 a.m.

East Bay Times. Authorities shut down lanes at the exit while CHP officers investigated the shooting . Eastbound lanes reopened around 8:40 p.m. Three possible suspects were arrested shortly after the shooting , said Richmond police Lt.

By noon, all five of the Bay Bridge lanes had been reopened , according to the CHP, winding down an hours-long ordeal that caused many drivers to inch along for blocks and blocks. One eastbound lane , the far right lane , had opened following the crash. An additional lane opened shortly after 7 a.m

During their investigation, a car that was not involved in the crash suddenly starting approaching the officers, said CHP Officer Vu Williams.

“A red Cadillac came down the right shoulder of the bridge. Officers gave multiple commands to stop. After several commands to stop, multiple rounds were fired and the vehicle came to rest,” said Williams.

The driver of the Cadillac was struck by gunfire and taken to Highland Hospital, according to Williams. His condition was not immediately available.

Two passengers in the car were unharmed and are being interviewed by investigators, he said.

All eastbound lanes were immediately closed so officers could examine the shooting scene and interview witnesses.

Traffic approaching the bridge in San Francisco had been diverted onto the Fourth Street exit, but the block was lifted once lanes on the bridge reopened.

Drivers waylaid on the bridge described a surreal experience. Some slept in their cars, others climbed atop car roofs to watch the sunrise and still more relieved themselves off the side of the bridge or passed the time by smoking marijuana, stuck motorists said.

Oklahoma deputy in fatal shooting once shot woman in face

  Oklahoma deputy in fatal shooting once shot woman in face One of the three Oklahoma officers involved in last week's fatal shooting of a mentally distressed black man was sued in federal court in 2008 after shooting a woman in the face, court records and the woman's former attorney said Thursday. Tulsa County sheriff's deputy William Ramsey was cleared by the sheriff's office in that 2006 shooting in which he emptied 12 rounds from his pistol while Ashley Barr drove by in a pickup truck. The woman said she had fired a gun into the air to break up a fight at an apartment complex and was driving away, but Ramsey claimed she was trying to harm his partner with her truck.

By noon, all five of the Bay Bridge lanes had been reopened , according to the CHP, winding down an hours-long ordeal that caused many drivers to inch along for blocks and blocks. One eastbound lane , the far right lane , had opened following the crash. An additional lane opened shortly after 7 a.m

Some people took selfies, and others got out of their cars and introduced themselves to each other, said Rami Dahud, a 34-year-old Millbrae resident and Uber driver who got stuck on the bridge shortly after 4 a.m. on a trip to take a passenger home to Pittsburg.

“The mood was actually kind of playful for the first hour and a half or so,” said Dahud. “But as day broke people started to get really frustrated.

“Everyone was coming back from a night out in San Francisco, so there were people who were passed out drunk, close to vomiting as it was, getting sick on the bridge — it was ugly,” Dahud said.

“They rerouted everyone through Treasure Island starting at the back of the bridge, so the people who got stuck first were the last to leave,” he added.

But it wasn’t all bad, he said.

“It was unpleasant, but there was a unique novelty to it. Walking around on the bridge at night. Sitting on the Bay Bridge outside your car, watching the sun come up,” Dahud said. “As far as the experience itself is concerned, it’s something you’re going to remember.”
