Unarmed woman shot by Minneapolis police after calling them for help

Unarmed woman shot by Minneapolis police after calling them for help

Saturday night at 11:28 p.m., Damond called police to report a possible assault in the alley behind her home.

Police shot Ms Damond, originally from Sydney, through the door of their patrol vehicle as she approached them in an alley near her home, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune reported, citing three unnamed sources.

Noor joined the Minneapolis Police Department in March of 2015 and was later celebrated as the first Somali officer for the 5th Precinct.

The details of how Noor came to fatally shoot Damond while responding to her 911 call remain unclear. She was shot by one of the officers and their body cameras weren't turned on, according to reports.

Noor and his partner, identified as Matthew Harrity, hadn't turned on their body cameras, according to reports, and have since been put on administrative leave. He had three complaints filed against him. The Minnesota Department of Public Safety Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is now investigating the incident and noted that they are still in the early stages. The newspaper reported that she was engaged to be married and had already taken her fiance's last name. "We only ask that the light of justice shine down on the circumstances of her death", he said.

Justine Damond, the blonde Australian woman who was wrongfully shot by police in Minneapolis, Minnesota, was a pseudoscientific "healer" who promoted unproven methods of meditation. The woman's fiancé, Don Diamond, is pleading with police to have them explain what happened.

Nearly two days after her death, police have still offered no public explanation and referred questions to the state's Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, which was investigating. She was living with Damond, her fiancé, at the time of her death. The group's executive director, Teresa Nelson, said the officers failed to obey department rules by not having their body cameras on.

Plunkett described Noor, who arrived in the United States as a child, as "a caring person with a family he loves" who "empathizes with the loss others are experiencing".

A Minneapolis man who says he's heartbroken and "devastated" after his bride-to-be was shot and killed by police this weekend is "desperate for information" on the shooting.

Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges called the shooting a "tragedy" and said she was "sad and disturbed".

The family of a Minneapolis woman who was shot and killed by police Saturday evening wants answers from the authorities.

"I don't know more than other people do", Hodges told CNN on Tuesday.

Damond studied to be a veterinarian but later became a yoga instructor and life coach. "I've asked for the investigation to be expedited to provide transparency and to answer as many questions as quickly as we can", Harteau said.

With a few exceptions for the sake of privacy, he said, "there's no reason not to have them on as basically the default".
