Perhaps this can start the healing process for his friends and family.

The senseless deaths of Philando Castile and Alton Sterling have been at the forefront of most Americans' minds this week, and we're saddened yet hopeful to update you on the killing in Falcon Heights, Minnesota.

While we've already shared what we know about the police officers who shot at killed Alton early Tuesday morning, we're now finding out more about the men involved in Philando's death on Wednesday as well.

According to multiple reports, Jeronimo Yanez (above, left) has been with the St. Anthony Police Dept. for only four years — coincidentally the same length of time as Blane Salamoni and Howie Lake II in Baton Rouge — and was the officer directly responsible for Philando's death.

From the Facebook Live video, we know that Jeronimo was visibly shaken after firing at least four shots into the cafeteria worker's right arm… not that that fact makes his actions any less monstrous.

We cannot believe this already happened again.

As we previously reported, a 37-year-old father-of-five named Alton Sterling became a victim of Police Brutality early Tuesday morning when cops in Baton Rouge, Louisiana pinned him to the ground and shot him in the back at least five times despite not even having a weapon in his hands.

Unfortunately, Alton's death was not the only murder of a black man to happen this week, because 32-year-old Philando Castile was shot by police four times during a routine traffic stop in Falcon Heights, Minnesota on Wednesday night.

Once he was shot, Philando's girlfriend Diamond Reynolds immediately began streaming the incident on Facebook Live, where she claimed the officer shot her boyfriend when he was reaching for his ID, just as the officer commanded. In fact, Philando even told the officer who shot him that he had a concealed carry permit just to be safe… but why isn't the NRA defending his 2nd Amendment rights??

While Philando and Alton were both taken too soon, both incidents were caught on video, which means celebrities and everyday people alike are closer to these stories than ever before.

As such, celebs who support the Black Lives Matter movement have spoken out about Philando's killing on social media, saying:

As we reported, sources close to the 57-year-old said the musician was prescribed Percocet in 2009 and slowly became addicted.

On April 15 after a performance in Atlanta, the Grammy winner reportedly overdosed on the drug while in flight, prompting the plane to make an emergency landing in Moline, Illinois. Police are trying to figure out if a doctor was present for this ordeal.

Additionally, officials are investigating what type of drugs were on the plane, and what kind were at his Paisley Park house.

As we wrote on Thursday, police obtained a warrant to search his Minnesota mansion.

Our thoughts and prayers go to Prince's friends and family during this difficult time.
