Minneapolis Police Officer Shoots Australian Woman on Her Own Call Out.

What we know about Australian Justine Damond, the police shooting that took her life and the officer who fired the fatal shot.
The incident

Australian Justine Damond was shot dead by US police officer Mohammed Noor from the passenger seat of his patrol car.

Ms Damond heard a possible assault taking place behind her Minneapolis home, called 911 and was in the alleyway when the officers responded.

She was reportedly in her pyjamas when she approached the car and was shot multiple times.

Officer Noor and his partner's body cameras were not turned on and their police car dashboard camera did not capture the incident.

A mobile phone was reportedly found near Ms Damond's body.

Mr Noor was a junior officer with little more than two years' experience on the force.

He was the first Somali-American to join the force in a state with a high Somali-American population.

The ABC's Ben Knight is in Minneapolis:

"We are learning that it hasn't been a great run for him in his short time in the force. Two complaints have been lodged against him already this year," he said.

The two officers involved have been placed on paid administrative leave, which is standard procedure.

Ms Damond moved to the United States in 2015 and was engaged to American Don Damond.

She took his name ahead of their wedding planned for next month.

Ms Damond graduated from Manly High School and the University of Sydney.

She was a qualified vet and yoga instructor who moved to the US to "follow her heart", according to friends in Sydney.

Many friends took to social media to express their grief, with one describing Ms Damond as "a guiding light, a dear friend and an incredible spirit".

Her family in Sydney asked for privacy saying they were "trying to come to terms with the tragedy".

Mr Damond spoke to media assembled at the scene saying: "Our hearts are broken".
The scene

Knight describes the alley: "You can see there are street lights in there."

"There are lights in the garages that come on automatically whenever there is motion.

"This is a very well-lit area, this is a very safe area."

Re: Minneapolis Police Officer Shoots Australian Woman on Her Own Call Out.

I'd love to hear what the call was for, and why she was outside at all,and which side of the car she approached, etc. Another words, the whole story! And why were the cops just sitting there, did they tell her to stay where she was? :questionma rk

Apparently the cop is a "Somali-American" well......it explains the trigger-happiness though.

Re: Minneapolis Police Officer Shoots Australian Woman on Her Own Call Out.

I've been following this in the media and noticed a few things both with international perspectives and the way the event is being handled.

First off. Many commenters, especially non-domestic question why Justine exited the house and approached the police vehicle. Perhaps it's different elsewhere, but everywhere I've lived in the states, the police are supposed to contact the complaintant unless asked otherwise to the dispatcher for anonymity. If the police arrive and don't see anything or know what's going on, they will radio the dispatcher and ask that the complaintant is notified by phone of their arrival and ask them to contact the officer. Hence people will approach the police car. Cops here don't usually exit the vehicle if they don't see anything and want to make sure the complaintant knows they were there or could provide additional information.

The media is also using this as a battering ram about gun culture and gun control. This is odd as it has nothing to do with armed citizens. Many countries or localities that forbid citizen gun ownership still arm their police officers. Not a gun control issue.

The coroner's report. From Minn.'s own BCA, this has been declared a homicide. If this were an accidental discharge, it would have been declared Accidental. This calls in another question. The coroner's report claims she was shot in the abdomen. Interesting position. I have no idea how tall this woman was, but my wife is 5'2" and standing next to our car's driver's window, her abdomen would be shielded by the door with the window exposing from upper chest to face. If the passenger shot her, it went over the lap of the other cop's lap and through the door. There also has been reports of multiple shots.

No video. Their policy is to activate body cams if they think anything can escalate to the use of force. If not, first available chance when in a safe position. That means they were mandated to go into record mode immediately after the shooting. Two officers happened not to comply? Then there is the car cam. Most have both a forward looking camera and rear camera to record what's happening in the vehicle. Two audio sources. One on the officer and one internally that also is fed the radio audio along with gps,time,and date and other info. When I was in the Biz, these activated through the siren/PA/light bar console when activated or turned on during officer transport. They in all probability lit up at arrival, so the cameras should have been on. By their own admission, the cameras didn't pick up anything useful. That's BS. It may not have caught the shooting, but at least audio within the cab should be available. Four cameras never were activated? Totally illogical and no recording of any kind? Illogical.

Political aspect. Does anyone think it's odd that there is not more statements to the press from BLM, ACLU, Cop blockers, citizen video activists? Perfect example of the so-called "pretty white blond woman" that press feeds on. This is a hot potato. Officer is black and Muslim. Implications of Islamaphobia, incongruity with BLM activism, and immigration reform.

Oz is leaning hard on the state dept. to get the dept. of justice/FBI involved in the initial investigation, not wait until later to investigate civil rights violation.

Corners will list as homicide, wether accidental or not.

"The killing of one human being by another human being. Although the term homicide is sometimes used synonymously with murder, homicide is broader in scope than murder. Murder is a form of criminal homicide; other forms of homicide might not constitute criminal acts."
