Police officer Mohamed Noor charged over shooting death of Justine Damond

Damond, 40, moved to America from Sydney, Australia, and was scheduled to marry a Minneapolis man in August. She had owned a meditation and life-coaching company.

She died at the scene.

Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman, who initially promised a charging decision before the end of 2017, later confided to a group of union activists that he couldn't meet his self-imposed deadline because investigators hadn't done a good enough job collecting evidence.

"No charges can bring Justine back". She had called 911 on the night in question to report a possible sexual assault in an alley behind her home.

Noor's partner, officer Matthew Harrity, witnessed the shooting previously told investigators that he was startled by a loud noise right before Damond appeared at the driver's side window of their police SUV on July 15. "Instead, Officer Noor recklessly and intentionally fired his handgun". "Such action violates the criminal law".

Noor and Harrity attempted to provide medical attention until emergency responders arrived.

Harteau's replacement, Medaria Arradondo, quickly announced a policy change requiring officers to turn on their body cameras in responding to any call or traffic stop.

The account of what occurred was given to state investigators by Mr Harrity - but Noor refused to be interviewed.

"Officer Noor should not have been charged with any crime", attorney Tom Plunkett said in a statement. "Many officers cooperated and came forward when we asked, but some did not".

January 24, 2018 - Attorneys say Freeman convened a grand jury and subpoenaed other officers to compel them to tell what they know.

December 28 - Freeman says he'll miss his self-imposed deadline of deciding on charges by year's end because he needs more time.

"We gathered every piece of information, no matter how minute", Freeman said.

An advocate for Minnesota's Somali and Muslim communities says he supports the charges against a Somali-American police officer who shot and killed an Australian woman last July. We all have Fifth Amendment rights, and I respect that. "As best I understand, he has not talked to anyone other than his lawyer".

"I believe the actions in question go against who we are as a department", then-Minneapolis police chief Janee Harteau told reporters in the days after the shooting.

Officer Mohamed Noor turned himself in on Tuesday. In advance of the nuptials, Justine Ruszczyk had taken last name of fiance Don Damond. "And to see this as an opening for additional justice, and for police accountability, that's really important". She gives the dispatcher the address again.

At the time of the shooting, Noor had been with the department for one year and nine months and Harrity had been with the department for one year, according to the state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. Statements from Harrity say both he, and Officer Noor, felt a threat.

According to Minnesota court records, Noor, 32, was charged with third degree murder and second degree manslaughter in connection to the shooting.

This is a developing story.
