US shooting: My heart with family, says Zuckerberg

Reacting to the fatal shooting of a black man in Minnesota which went viral on social media after it was uploaded on Facebook Live, the social media giant’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg said his heart went out to the family.

The killing of Philando Castile, 32, who was shot by a police officer after a traffic stop on Wednesday, created a furore across the US and on social media.

Castile’s girlfriend Diamond Reynolds went live on Facebook immediately after her fiance was shot by police in his car.

“My heart goes out to the Castile family and all the other families who have experienced this kind of tragedy. My thoughts are also with all members of the Facebook community who are deeply troubled by these events,” Zuckerberg wrote.

Castile later died from his wounds. In the video, Reynolds’ four-year-old daughter is seen watching the incident from the back seat.
