The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports sources with knowledge of the shooting say Justine Damond, 40, of Sydney, Australia, was in her pajamas and talking to the driver of the patrol auto when the officer in the passenger seat drew his weapon and shot Damond through the door of the vehicle. Police said at a press conference Sunday that they were responding to an "unknown trouble" call when the shooting occurred.
WCCO-TV identified the officer who shot Damond as Mohammed Noor, who joined the department in 2015.
Mohamed Noor fired at Justine Damond on Saturday night while she was speaking to the officer's partner. "The officers' body cameras were not turned on at the time and the squad camera did not capture the incident".
Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman told the station both officers should have had their bodycams on when Damond approached them in the alley.
"This woman was a lovely light, she was a healer, she was loved, she should be alive - she should still be here", said a friend of Justine's.
She said that she, too, has a lot of questions such as why their body cameras were not on and why was the Australian woman shot even as she was the one who called 911.
The investigation is being conducted by a state agency, rather than internally by the Minneapolis Police Department.Читайте также: American Airlines ends codeshare with Qatar, Etihad as subsidy dispute heats up
The victim has been identified by Australian officials as Justine Damond.
The American Civil Liberties Union said Monday that the fact that the body cameras were not turned on was a violation of the city's policy.
Once that happens, county attorney Mike Freeman - not a grand jury - will decide whether either of the two officers involved should be charged in Ruszczyk's death. She said the department has requested an expedited external, independent investigation to ensure transparency.
The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is investigating the fatal officer-involved shooting, and Minneapolis Assistant Police Chief Medaria Arradondo said Sunday that the officers involved are on administrative leave. Many of them were neighborhood residents.
Sterlace said Damond visited many times and described her as kind and polite. "She was a teaching to so many and living a life of openness, love and kindness". She touched so many people with her loving and generous heart.
"I demand answers. If anybody can help, just call police and demand answers", said her stepson, Zach, according to the paper.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
