Prosecutors contended that the officer never saw the gun because it remained in Castile's pocket until paramedics removed him from his vehicle.
Authorities released the footage on Tuesday, just days after a Minnesota jury acquitted Mr Yanez on all charges in the shooting.
In the moments after a Minnesota police officer fatally shot Philando Castile, his handcuffed girlfriend began screaming in the back of a patrol auto as her 4-year-old daughter begged her to stop.
Both had been passengers in the auto when Castile was shot by police officer Jeronimo Yanez, mere inches from the seven shots fired into the stopped vehicle. Yanez can be heard yelling that before he fired seven shots into the auto. As more police and an ambulance arrived, Yanez could be heard breathing heavily and swearing and trying to explain his actions to fellow officers. Her 4-year-old daughter was sitting in the back seat of the vehicle when Office Jeronimo Yarez opened fire on Castile.
Officer Yanez repeatedly orders Mr Castile not to reach for the weapon before firing seven times into the auto and shooting him dead.
"OK don't reach for it, then", Mr Yanez says. At that moment, Yanez can be seen starting to pull his weapon from his holster with his right hand. Still, is that leeway earned when Castile, a popular school cafeteria worker with no felony criminal record, is clearly heard on the video volunteering the information that he is carrying his legally permitted handgun?
The release of the video made some people even angrier about the death.
Juror Bonita Schultz told Minneapolis television station KARE and the Star Tribune that their big question came down to the part nobody could see on the video - whether Castile went for his gun. He testified he didn't see a gun inside the auto and didn't hear most of the conversation between Yanez and Castile, who appeared calm and relaxed. But they said prosecutors failed to prove that Yanez acted with "culpable negligence", the legal standard needed to support a conviction for second-degree manslaughter in Minnesota.
Officer: Did he say anything after he was shot?
In one piece of video evidence, Reynolds' daughter comforts her mother as the two are placed in the back of a squad vehicle. "I can't believe they just did that", Reynolds said.
Yanez, who is Latino, also suspected that Castile might have been involved in recent armed robbery. He said the panel spent a lot of time dissecting the meaning of the "culpable negligence" standard until the two holdouts eventually agreed Friday on acquittal.
The girl stands and gives Reynolds a kiss. In the approximately 10-minute clip, Mr Yanez can be seen pulling Mr Castille over, approaching his auto, and asking for his licence and registration.
The police officer offered this explanation about the traffic stop. Reynolds repeatedly told officers on the scene her boyfriend had been reaching for his wallet.
Yanez is heard shouting at the woman to keep her hands up. But, he says he became alarmed when "as soon as I get up to the auto, I'm hit with a odor of burning marijuana". And I had no other option than to take out my firearm, and I shot. "And as he was pulling it out I, a million things started going through my head, And I thought I was gonna die". Yanez slowly walked away, and another officer said: "You all right? You all right? You're not hit any, are you?"
Officers pulled Castile from the vehicle and began CPR. Yanez is then off-camera, but can be heard talking through his body microphone.
