    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...

    Prosecutors are seeking to add a second-degree murder charge against the Minneapolis police officer who shot and killed Justine Ruszczyk. A court filing states that since Mohamed Noor is already charged with third-degree murder, three of the four elements of a second-degree charge are satisfied. The filing argues the shooting also satisfies the fourth element - that Noor intended to kill Ruszczyk. "The circumstances surrounding the crime show that the defendant acted with the intent to kill," prosecutors wrote. "He fired at Ms. Ruszczyk from no more than six feet away. He fired with tragic accuracy, managing to send a...

    Authorities are trying to determine the motivations and background of a 32-year-old Seattle man who allegedly tried to run down two men outside of a synagogue in Hancock Park last week in an attack that police have described as a hate crime.

    The respected leader of a Rainier Valley mosque was arrested Monday on an immigration charge, surprising those who knew his work in Seattle's Somali community. Federal agents with the Joint Terrorism Task Force arrested Abu Abrahim Sheik Mohamed at Sea-Tac Airport as he got off a domestic flight, federal criminal justice sources said. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokeswoman Lorie Haley said only that Mohamed, 37, was "in custody on immigration violations" and is being held at the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma. She declined to specify what immigration regulations Mohamed is accused of having violated. While he is being...

    Mohamed Abdi Mohamed is charged with two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office. Deputy District Attorney Richard Ceballos told Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Teresa Sullivan that authorities believe Mohamed traveled to California to commit the crime, while an attorney from the Los Angeles County Public Defender’s Office countered that the prosecution’s theory was “purely speculative.” Police say the 32-year-old yelled anti-Semitic remarks at the pair of victims, made a U-turn and then drove at the men, who were on a sidewalk. Mohamed faces a possible maximum sentence of eight...

    A 25-year-old woman has been gang raped by Africans in a playground in central Stockholm. The woman contacted the police herself on Friday, who then arrested the three men the same evening. The arrest warrants show that the men are 18, 20 and 29 years old. Two are citizens of Somalia and the third in Eritrea. One of them needs interpreting in Somali and another in Arabic. Which means that they most likely are newly arrived migrants. Two of them are previously convicted. The 18-year-old has committed assaults and drug offences. The 20-year-old is convicted of several cases of theft...

The allegations first raised by conservative media in 2016 include claims that she married her brother and committed immigration fraud. More recent claims allege misuse of campaign funds. Last week, Minnesota Republicans in the 5th District launched a digital billboard campaign and website highlighting the allegations.

    A Hennepin County judge says the case against former Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor will go forward. The former Minneapolis police officer shot and killed Justine Ruszczyk Damond last year. The Australian native had called 911 to report a possible sexual assault behind her southwest Minneapolis home. Noor’s attorneys say he acted reasonably when he shot Ruszczyk Damond. They’re asking the judge to dismiss the charges. However, prosecutors say Noor acted recklessly in using deadly force. Noor’s defense attorneys filed motions they hoped would lead to the case against their client being dismissed. Instead, they sat with the former Minneapolis...

    Attorneys head to court Thursday to argue over whether a criminal case should go forward against a former Minneapolis police officer who fatally shot an unarmed Australian woman who had called 911 to report a possible sexual assault in the alley behind her home. Mohamed Noor’s attorneys maintain he acted reasonably July 15, 2017, when he shot Justine Ruszczyk Damond. They’ve asked the judge to dismiss the charges. But prosecutors say Noor acted recklessly in using deadly force against Damond, a 40-year-old life coach and dual citizen who was engaged to be married. Here's a look at the issues in...

    Hundreds of teens identified as Somalis rampaged through the Valley Fair Amusement Park in Shakopee, Minnesota. It was the first night of the ValleyScare activities. Police said, “The number of individuals running throughout the park increased substantially and was difficult to control.” They had to shut the park down early as the numbers of teens in the mob grew to hundreds. People described them fighting, terrorizing children, pushing children, knocking over Halloween props. One victim said the media doesn’t want this out because three Muslims are running for office.

The former Minneapolis police officer charged in the shooting death of Justine Ruszczyk Damond once put a gun to a driver’s head during a traffic stop and sometimes ignored calls, according to court filings indicating that psychiatrists and training officers voiced concerns about his fitness for duty.

    Lawyers for the former Minneapolis police officer charged in the shooting death of Justine Damond have filed a response to the state outlining “factual misstatements and mischaracterizations.” Mohamed Noor’s attorneys dispute several items brought up in the state’s court filing last week, including a motor vehicle stop on May 18, 2017, four training days and “misleading discussion” of his psych evaluation. Noor’s lawyers want this information declared inadmissible in court and not considered for probable cause. In Wednesday’s filing, the lawyers call the state's claims “disgraceful” and “inaccurate," stating that “these lies by omission and clear misstatements of fact actively...

    Hennepin County prosecutors say a now-former Minneapolis police officer who shot and killed Justine Damond in July 2017 showed a reckless disregard for human life, citing his response to previous police calls and his training records. Prosecutors filed documents Wednesday detailing Mohamed Noor's psychological evaluation prior to becoming an officer and his actions during a call hours before he killed Damond. Those training records are contained in the new filings. They offer the first glimpse of Noor's behavior and personal insights while he was preparing to become an officer. During Noor's 2015 psychological evaluation, he self-reported that "... he disliked...

    A Hennepin County District Judge has denied a motion to place a court filing under seal in the case of former Minneapolis officer Mohamed Noor, who faces a trial in the shooting death of Justine Ruszczyk. The request by Noor's attorneys would have sealed a motion they filed last month. The attorneys had asked the court to suppress Noor's psychological records obtained in two search warrants. Judge Kathryn Quaintance wrote in her decision on Tuesday that Noor's attorneys argued in private on Aug. 19 that sealing a suppression motion and "correlating exhibits" are necessary to protect "confidential and medically privileged"...

    Defense attorneys want charges dismissed against a former Minneapolis police officer who shot and killed an Australian woman last year.

The lawsuit states Damond "suffered the loss of her enjoyment of life, including marrying,...

    The migrant violence that is becoming a feature of daily life in Sweden, Germany, France and elsewhere in Europe is now coming to the United States. Did we think we would be immune?

    Last month, two dozen Somali youths swarmed and attacked two Maine residents in a park in Lewiston, beating them with sticks while laughing, as video of the incident shows. One of the victims was hospitalized, but no charges were filed. Then, last Tuesday, a group of Somalis fired pellet guns at non-Somalis in the same park. A fight broke out and one non-Somali, a 38-year-old father of two, died days later from his injuries. Kennedy Park in Lewiston has become the focal point of such clashes, according to reports. Previously, a 10-year-old girl was jumped and beaten by a Somali...
