Minneapolis Police Chief Doesn't Back Officer Who Shot Australian Woman

Hundreds attend Minneapolis march in honor of Justine Damond

Minneapolis Mayor Says Police Body Camera Policy Must Change

Now he is now under investigation in fatal shooting of Justine Damond, an Australian woman who had made Minneapolis her home and who was killed by a single gunshot wound to the abdomen that state law enforcement officials say was sacked by Noor.

Justine (Ruszczyk) Damond was unarmed and wearing pyjamas when she was shot by Officer Mohamed Noor from his police squad auto, who had responded to Damond's 911 call about a suspected sexual assault in the alleyway behind her Minneapolis home.

"On our squad cars you will find the words 'to protect with courage and to serve with compassion.' This did not happen".

Before Ms Damond's death, Ms Harteau had already been battling community backlash in the wake of the shooting death of Mr Castile at the hands of police in neighbouring St Anthony.

"I can hear someone out the back and I, I'm not sure if she's having sex or being raped", Ms Damond told the 911 operator, according to a transcript released by police on Wednesday.

The Minneapolis police chief says the Australian woman who was shot by an officer after calling 911 "did not have to die".

He said he hoped that spirit would also mark the monsoon session that began today and that all parliamentarians would engage in quality debate.

Ms Damond's family have indicated they may take legal action against the City of Minneapolis after the death of the 40-year-old yoga teacher who was not armed when she was shot. Damond was shot as she came up to the squad's driver side window, by Officer Mohamed Noor. That is what Damond reported to 911 when she called.

Relatives, neighbours and community members joined a protest march in Damond's home suburb of Fulton, Minneapolis on Thursday evening (Friday morning AEST). Harrity has told investigators he heard a loud noise near the squad auto just before Ruszczyk approached the driver's side. She says training officers told her that Noor did well.

The Minneapolis Police Department has placed the two officers on standard administrative leave.

Police Chief Harteau has spoken to Don to assure him there will be a full investigation into the shooting.

One of the open complaints resulted in a lawsuit in which Noor and two other officers are accused of assaulting and falsely imprisoning a woman.

"Based on the publicly released information from the BCA, this should not have happened", Harteau said, referring to a preliminary investigative report released earlier in the week.

The state would be up for assembly polls in 2018. "By having a regional flag, no disrespect is being shown to the national flag". The Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP), the main opposition party in the state, does not support a separate flag for Karnataka.

Officer Noor has exercised his Fifth Amendment right not to speak with investigators.

"It's not their community or our community, it's everybody's community and we are all one community and we all have to fight for justice", said Jeannine Myrvik, who lives in south Minneapolis.

The criminal bureau said that unless more people come forward, there are no additional interviews scheduled.

Harteau said the officers should turn on their body cameras before any call because they don't know what will happen on any call. "We have a very robust training and hiring process". Noor's partner told state investigators that he had been startled by a loud noise right before the shooting.

"We don't have all the answers", Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges said at a news conference last night. A recent report by a Minnesota news station, KSTP-TV, found that Minneapolis officers recorded relatively little body camera footage, averaging around five to six hours each during one month this year.

Justine Damond called the police herself, concerned about a disturbance behind her house.
