Corey Hutchins
Castile’s gun permit might have gotten him killed


Guest column

Editor’s note: Occasionally we have guest writers for this space and this week’s column is by Corey Hutchins, who was S.C. Press Association Journalist of the Year in 2011 and 2012. He now lives in Colorado and writes for the Colorado Independent. – Phil Noble

Philando Castile, a black man in Minnesota who was shot and killed by a 28-year-old police officer named Jeronimo Yanez during a traffic stop, was about my age.
