Skip to comments.Judge allows 2nd-degree murder charge in Noor case (Justine Damond Murder)

A judge is allowing prosecutors to add a second-degree murder charge against Mohamed Noor, the Minneapolis police officer who shot and killed Justine Ruszczyk, according to court records.
Judge Kathryn Quaintance signed an order allowing an amended complaint Friday.
In the order, Quaintance stated, "the State argued that a sufficient basis exists for the additional charge."
Last week, prosecutors argued that since Noor is already charged with third-degree murder, three of the four elements of a second-degree charge are satisfied. Their petition argued the shooting also satisfied the fourth element - that Noor intended to kill Ruszczyk.
Noor and his partner responded to a 911 call from Ruszczyk the night of July 15, 2017 about a possible sexual assault in the alley behind her south Minneapolis home.
Noor's partner, officer Matthew Harrity, said he heard a thump on the hood of the car before Noor reached across Harrity and fired at Ruszczyk.
Justine Damond Update Ping...
Watch — at least one Muslim and/or Somali on the Jury. He will be acquitted or a hung jury.
Watch some muzzie politician put their nose into it and get him acquitted or something lesser.
You mean Keith Ellison?
So far so good.
The case will be resolved by 2030. Nice justice system y’all have there.
You mean Keith Ellison?
Yeah, he’ll be the AG......Minnesota is turning into a pit in the depths of hell
Let POS meet The Hood GenPop Welcome Committee. I'm sure it will be a lovely Party.
Infidel woman was not wearing a veil. She deserved to die.
I’m betting on it.
Thanks for the update.
Hopefully the animal gets his comeuppance but I’m expecting a hung jury that leads to a slap on the wrist plea deal.
Need to hang, draw and quarter the bastid.
I would not expect too much if I was you.
But a guy can hope.
100%... don’t overcharge and then get off
Oh man! I know the feeling. I have hoped that Hillary would be prosecuted ever since Bill left the White House.
Naw, it'd be warmer...
