New charges in that deadly police shooting in Minnesota that sparked nationwide protests. Philando Castile shot by an officer, his girlfriend live streaming the encounter on Facebook. Now that officer is being charged with manslaughter. ABC's Steve osunsami has more. Told him not to reach for it. I told him to get his hand open. Reporter: This is the voice of officer Jeronimo Yanez broadcast live on Facebook and this is the gun police say he shouldn't have fired killing philando Castile in the suburbs of St. Paul, Minnesota. You shot four bullets into sim, sir. He was just getting his license and registration. Reporter: This morning he's charged with second degree manslaughter and two felony firearm charges for endangering the safety of both diamond Reynolds who recorded the video and her 4-year-old daughter in the backseat. No reasonable officer would have used deadly force under these circumstances. Reporter: You hear both Castile and his girlfriend tell the officer he has a legally owned gun in his pocket. Authorities now say the officer started firing before Castile even had a chance to remove the gun. I feel as though that murder to the highest extent of the law is what would be appropriate here.
