Gallery: Police meet marchers as Philando Castile protest moves to Interstate 94

Easton Green

Hundreds marched on I-94 in St. Paul Friday night, protesting the “not guilty” verdict in the police shooting case of Philando Castile.

The demonstrators started with a static protest on the State Capitol steps, and were reacting to the acquittal of St. Anthony police officer Jeronimo Yanez by a Ramsey County Court jury earlier in the day.

At around 10:24 p.m., marchers moved from Dale Street North onto I-94. Protesters got onto the interstate without police presence, but police arrived to redirect traffic further down the highway almost immediately.
