    Saturday, family and friends will gather to remember Justine Damond, the woman killed in a high-profile officer-involved shooting in Minneapolis. Sunday will mark one year since Damond's death. At 3:30 p.m. Saturday, a memorial park bench will be dedicated to Damond at Minnehaha Creek. Family members say that's where Damond and her fiance Don first expressed their love for one another. After that, 51st Street near the alley where Damond died will be closed off so people can reflect and remember her. Later in Australia, Damond's family will hold a vigil as the sun rises Sunday morning there. Damond was...

Noor was charged with third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in March. He posted bail with conditions on March 22 and was released from the Hennepin County Jail. He is scheduled to appear for an omnibus hearing on May 8. If convicted of third-degree murder, he could face...

    A federal judge ruled Monday that Minneapolis Police Officer Mohamed Noor will not have to answer questions about the shooting death of Justine Damond in a separate court battle that also involves allegations of police misconduct. Noor is one of three Minneapolis police officers accused of forcing their way into a woman's home two months before the Damond incident. The woman, Teresa Graham, claims the officers violated her constitutional rights by sending her to the hospital against her will while alleging she was in the throes of a mental health crisis. Graham's attorney, Jordan Kushner, argued the two incidents could...

    Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman had initially said his team would announce its decision on whether it would file charges in the shooting death of Justine Damond, but on Thursday, Freeman said in a statement the investigation would not be completed by the Dec. 31 deadline. “A dedicated team in the Hennepin County Attorney’s Office has been working diligently since we received the case in mid-September,” Freeman said in a statement. “Our goal was to complete the review and make a decision on whether or not to bring charges by the end of the year. We are getting more information...

    The father of Justine Damond said family members have concerns about the investigation into her death after Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman was captured on video last week criticizing investigators in the case. Freeman said he didn't have enough evidence to charge Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor because investigators "haven't done their job." Damond was shot in July when she approached Noor's squad car after calling 911 to report a possible sexual assault. John Ruszczyk said investigators from the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension promised the family a thorough investigation after Damond was killed last summer. "We are apprehensive that...

In a video recorded by one of the members, Freeman expresses frustration with the lack of cooperation from Minneapolis police in the investigation of Justine Damond’s killing on the night of July 15. “Let me just say it’s not my fault.

    JUSTINE Damond’s killer cop doesn’t have to talk about why he shot her — but if he wants to keep his job, he will be compelled. The Star Tribune reports that Officer Mohamed Noor has a constitutional right not to talk with anyone pursuing possible criminal charges in her shooting death. But if the Minneapolis Police Department opens an internal investigation, the law will force him to talk if he wants to keep working as a police officer. However, if he gives a statement there’s another cruel twist. It can never be used in a criminal case. In Minnesota, public...
  • Authorities Find No Evidence in Damond's Home

    Court documents show that authorities found nothing when they searched the home of Justine Ruszczyk Damond shortly after an officer fatally shot her. Damond called for police assistance July 15 because she believed she had heard a sexual assault taking place in the alley behind her house. Mohamed Noor, one of the two responding officers, shot her. He has declined to be interviewed by investigators. Hours later, police obtained a search warrant for Damond's house and checked inside for blood, hair, guns, ammunition, knives, drugs or writings. They took nothing from the home. The Damond family attorney, Bob Bennett, says...

    At least two orange street signs reading "Warning: Twin Cities police easily startled" were seen in the Twin Cities Sunday. Joe Morino brought an incredulous friend to see the orange street sign he just spotted in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood of Minneapolis. The official-looking metal sign read: “WARNING: TWIN CITIES POLICE EASILY STARTLED.” It featured a graphic silhouette of a police officer, a gun in each raised hand, shooting in both directions. “There’s a side of truth to the sign,” Morino said after snapping a picture of it. “That tells you there is something wrong with the system.” The sign, which...

    Minneapolis, MN – Raymond Dehn, candidate for Minneapolis mayor, is proposing police officers leave their guns in their cars, but says it’s okay for them to have nightsticks or pepper spray. Raymond Dehn, who is also a State Representative, is running against current mayor Betsy Hodges in this fall’s election, according to Fox9. He said, “Officers don’t need to carry guns on their person all the time…I’m not saying they don’t have access to that, just like they have access to more lethal weapons in their cars, I would believe they would still have access to their guns in their...

    Before Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor shot Justine Ruszczyk through the open driver's side window of his squad, a woman had approached the back of the patrol car and "slapped" it, according to a court document filed Monday. Authorities say Ruszczyk, who also used the surname Damond, called 911 to report a possible sexual assault in the alley behind her south Minneapolis home. She called again 10 minutes later to check on the status of the responding officer's arrival. Soon after, she was shot. A search warrant was filed by Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension investigators to look at the...

    The records show Officer Mohamed Noor was hired as a cadet in March 2015. In September of that year, he received a letter saying he passed his Peace Officer Licensing Examination and was eligible to become a licensed, sworn officer. Noor is on paid leave after he killed Justine Damond, a 40-year-old spiritual teacher who was engaged to be married, on July 15 after she called 911 twice to report a possible rape. Noor, who was in the passenger seat of a squad car, shot across his partner in the driver's seat and hit Damond. His partner told authorities that...
