There will be a public gathering to talk about the video of the Philando Castile shooting

The graphic video was made public on Tuesday.

The community will be gathering Tuesday evening to discuss and process the graphic dashcam video showing the shooting of Philando Castile.

The video was played several times during former officer Jeronimo Yanez's trial last week. However, it wasn't publicly released until Tuesday afternoon. You can watch the whole thing here.

According to a new Facebook event, Jamar Clark's cousin – Cameron Clark – requested to have a public gathering so that people could get together and process what happened.

"If you need a safe space to talk, process, or to just 'be' feel free to come by and spend some time with community members. All are welcome!" the event reads.

The gathering will take place in Minneapolis at 1011 West Broadway Ave. at 8:30 p.m.

The Facebook event currently doesn't mention any marches or protests.

Following Friday's decision to acquit Yanez, hundreds of people rallied and protested. Part of Interstate 94 was shut down for a while, and 18 people were arrested. There was another march on Saturday. That one remained peaceful and there were no arrests.

Tuesday, thousands of photos, documents, audio clips and other data in the Castile case were made public too. You can see some of those files here.
