Aussie woman calls cops after hearing noise, Minn. police kill her Update:officer named
quote:

40-year-old woman who family members said called 911 to report a possible assault in the alley behind her home Saturday night was fatally shot by a Minneapolis police officer.

The shooting happened at the end of the alley on W. 51st Street between Washburn and Xerxes avenues S. in the city’s Fulton neighborhood.

The woman, Justine Damond, from Sydney, Australia, and her fiancé lived in the 5000 block of Washburn.

Three sources with knowledge of the incident said Sunday that two officers in one squad car, responding to the 911 call, pulled into the alley. Damond, in her pajamas, went to the driver’s side door and was talking to the driver. The officer in the passenger seat pulled his gun and shot Damond through the driver’s side door, sources said. No weapon was found at the scene.

“Two Minneapolis police officers responded to a 911 call of a possible assault just north of the 5100 block of Washburn Avenue S. just before 11:30 p.m. Saturday,” the state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension said in a news release. “At one point, an officer fired their weapon, fatally striking a woman.


quote:

The BCA’s investigation is in its early stages. More information will be available once initial interviews with incident participants and any witnesses are complete. … The officers’ body cameras were not turned on at the time and the squad camera did not capture the incident. Investigators are attempting to determine whether any video of the incident exists.”

Authorities have not released the woman’s name, but it was confirmed by people at the scene.

Minneapolis police confirmed that the two officers involved are on paid administrative leave, which is standard procedure.

The shooting was called “tragic” by Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges, who held a news conference about it at City Hall late Sunday afternoon, appearing with assistant Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo and Linea Palmisano, who represents the 13th Ward on the City Council.

“I am heartsick and deeply disturbed by the fatal officer-involved shooting that happened last night,” Hodges said.

“I know the neighborhood well,” said Hodges, who represented the area for eight years as a City Council member.

“We have few facts at this point,” she said. “I want to know more. I call on the BCA to share as much information with all of us as quickly as they can.

“I have questions about why the bodycams weren’t on,” she said.


Sad all the way around.

I back the blue all the way, usually. In this case frick that trigger happy officer. If you're that scared that you pull a gun on someone in this situation you don't need to be a cop.

WTF is the point of body cams if it's policy to have them on but nothing really bad happens to the cops if they aren't?

With all the cameras turned off, and her being shot in the way she was, this seems really suspicious.

This should be an interesting case. Find it hard to believe cops would shoot an unarmed white lady without a good reason. At the same time it looks bad so far:

Exactly. There should be some sort of deterrant to activity like this.

This is exactly the kind of behavior that one would expect to warrant riots.

No police shooting "warrants a riot."

It kind of sounds like a mis fire. Maybe she was talking to the driver cop relaying information and the passenger cop was checking his weapon getting ready to exit the vehicle and start investigating when the pistol went off.
