The aftermath of yet another police shooting of an African-American man has been captured on cellphone video.

Thirty-two-year-old Philando Castile was allegedly shot by police in Minneapolis after being pulled over for a broken tail light.

Mr Castile's partner, Diamond Reynolds, filmed and livestreamed the aftermath of the shooting for 10 minutes. Ms Reynolds' child was also in the car at the time of the shooting.

The video shows Mr Castile covered in blood while a policeman continues to aim his gun at him.

It's alleged Mr Castile was carrying a weapon and was trying to show it to police when they fired.

However, Ms Reynold says he was licenced to carry a firearm and was reaching for his ID and wallet in his pocket.

"He let the officer know he had a firearm and he was reaching for a wallet," she says in the video. "And the officer just shot him in his arm."

The officer then yells: "I told him not to reach for it, I told him to get his hand out!"

"You told him to get his ID sir, his driver's licence," Ms Reynold says in response.

Mr Castile's mother told local media he later died in hospital.

The shooting comes just 24 hours after another African-American man, Alton Sterling, was filmed being shot at point-blank range by police in Louisiana.

Mr Sterling died at the scene.
