Australian woman died of abdomen wound, medical examiner says

Officer shoots and kills woman in Fulton

"At one point an officer fired their weapon, fatally striking a woman", the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension said Sunday in a news release.

Justine Damond died in a shooting in the U.S. city of Minneapolis. Police said at a press conference Sunday that they were responding to an "unknown trouble" call when the shooting occurred.

"I am heartsick and deeply disturbed by the fatal officer-involved shooting", Mayor Hodges said.

"The officers' body cameras were not turned on at the time and the squad camera did not capture the incident". The sources said that two officers arrived in their squad auto to respond to the 911 call, and Damond went to the driver's side of the vehicle to speak with the officers.

Thomas Plunkett, who represents Noor, said the officer "extends his condolences to the family and anyone else who has been touched by this event".

"Like you, I have a lot of questions".

Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges visited the scene, in a part of the city she once represented on the City Council.

She said: I've asked for the investigation to be expedited to provide transparency and to answer as many questions as quickly as we can. He said that she called the police because she thought something bad was happening to someone else. But the department did not say why the officer opened fire. The Star Tribune reported that Justine went by her to-be married name instead of her maiden name, Justine Ruszczyk.

Justine Damond was shot to death after calling 911 to report a sexual assault nearby.

Investigators are now scrambling to figure out if any video of the situation exists.

She did not want to be in the United States due to the gun laws in the country but she had to move because of her fiancé. She had originally trained to be a veterinarian and had attended the University of Sydney.

Sterlace talked to her father after it happened and said her family is just heartbroken.

Ruszczyk family said in a statement released by DFAT,"This is a very hard time for our family".

"Basically, my mom's dead because a police officer shot her for reasons I don't know", he said.

Authorities have released no details about what led to Saturday's shooting of Justine Damond.

Meanwhile, a vigil held for Damond draws more than 300 people.
