Bullets lodged close to Reynolds in the front passenger's seat and her 4-year-old daughter in a auto seat in back.

The council's resolution approving the settlement said, in part, that it resolves any claims related to the alleged detention of and use of force against Reynolds and her daughter, and any claims of racial discrimination or emotional distress.

The settlement with Reynolds follows a $3 million dollar settlement with Castile's family earlier this year.

Reynolds released a short statement Tuesday night, saying, "The settlement symbolizes that what happened to my daughter and I on July 6, 2016 was wrong".

Valerie Castile has used some of the money to start a foundation in her son's name.

Tom McBroom said that "She needs to come off County and State Aid now that she has some cash".

According to a report by WCCO-TV, a CBS-affiliated television channel, Castile was shot fatally after he was stopped at a red light on Larpenteur Avenue in Falcon Heights on July 6 2016, in an incident which was described as a police officer-involved shooting.

Reynolds broadcast the aftermath of the shooting to millions on Facebook Live. The defense argued that Yanez saw Castile's hand on the gun, which he had a permit to carry, the AP said. She then said that the officer shot Castile four times. The officer tells him not to reach for it and soon opens fire, all while Reynolds' young daughter is in the back seat.

"I have friends of mine in the Minneapolis Police Department".

Neither Reynolds nor her daughter was injured, but Reynolds was detained for a time by Roseville police and questioned by the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. Diamond Reynold's settlement was announced Tuesday, Nov. 28, according to ABC News.

The officer who shot Castile was acquitted of all charges this past summer.

Dashcam footage shows the entire exchange occurred within 40 seconds of Yanez approaching Castile's window.
