For Diamond Reynolds, the woman who started a live stream on Facebook after her fiancé Philando Castile was shot and killed by a police officer in Minnesota, today is about justice.

Ramsey County Prosecutor John Choi said at a Friday news conference that will happen when his office receives the case.

A live-streamed Facebook video taken by Philando's girlfriend and front-seat passenger, Diamond Reynolds, allegedly documented the moments after Castile was shot by Yanez. Facebook originally said the removal of the video was a glitch, but sources are now saying that police deleted the video after confiscating Reynolds' phone.

"Please, officer, don't tell me that you just did this to him", she says.

State investigators said the two officers involved were Jeronimo Yanez and Joseph Kauser, both four-year veterans of the St. Anthony Police Department.

KARE could identify only this, from July 2, as a near-in-time robbery that St. Anthony police might have been investigating. A helicopter chopped away overhead as the crowd leaned in to hear members of Castile's family, and J.J. Hill staffers and parents, describe the person they had lost so violently, less than 24 hours before.

Police say the group made their way to a nearby commercial street where they broke the storefront window of one business as well as windows of an unattended police squad auto.

The four-year-old daughter of Diamond Reynolds was in the backseat of Philando Castile's auto when he was shot multiple times at close range by a police officer.

"While we pray for the families of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, we will also pray for an end to this plague of injustice in our communities".

Some 200-300 protesters with a large supply of donated food and water were still there as midnight approached.

Religious groups are among those calling for a new national conversation on violence, law enforcement, and race in the wake of this week's devastating shootings.

"When incidents like this occur, there's a big chunk of our fellow citizenry that feels as if it's because of the color of their skin, they are not being treated the same", Obama said several hours before the Dallas shootings.
