The frazzled police officer Jeronimo Yanez, who shot and killed Philando Castile during a routine traffic stop, was found not guilty of second-degree manslaughter today in court.

Philando was shot after he alerted the police officer that he was legally carrying a gun. The incident was infamously broadcasted live over Facebook by Philando’s girlfriend, Diamond Reynolds, while her 6-year old-daughter was in the back seat.

Office Yanez fired 7 shots into the car, claiming to have been afraid and confused and claiming that Castile had reached for his gun even after he was instructed not to. The Facebook Live video shows the aftermath of the event.

Philando’s mother spoke to the press today and continues to assert that her son was murdered by the Minnesota police officer. “The system continues to fail black people,” she said. “My son loved this city and this city killed my son and the murderer gets away! Are you kidding me right now?

Castile, a elementary school cafeteria supervisor, was a role model to hundreds of children, memorizing their names and food allergies before he senselessly was shot and killed.

It was Mrs. Hart’s first red carpet since giving birth to the couple’s first child, Kenzo Kash, just three weeks ago. To say it was a snapback is an understatement. The 30-year-old, who worked out during her entire pregnancy, look sexy and svelt in a elegant black number while her superstar hubby hit the carpet in a black suit with white trim.

Although the couple faced some bumps in the road earlier this year with Kev being extorted over a video showing him cheating on his wife, the couple has bounced back. And on Tuesday night’s jungle-themed red carpet Hart told HipHollywood, “My wife is amazing. I would not be the person I am today with out her.”

You can see Kev, alongside Dewayne “The Rock” Johnson, Jack Black and more, when “Jumani: Welcome To The Jungle” hits theaters on December 20th.
