Lavish Reynolds went on Facebook Live video moments after her boyfriend was shot in Falcon Heights, Minnesota. Reynolds said her family was pulled over for a busted tail light. She says that the officer asked her boyfriend for his license. As her boyfriend reached for his license, he informed officer that he was licensed to carry and had a gun.
Reynolds goes on to say that the officer informed her boyfriend not to move and he begin to put his hands up. She says that’s when the officer shot her boyfriend 4 to 5 times. Reynolds remained very calm throughout the situation. She was handcuffed and put into the back of a police car with her daughter.
