Minneapolis police chief says officer 'did well in his training'

Read the Minneapolis 911 calls: 'I can hear someone out the back'

The transcripts were released as Minnesota investigators continued to search for a potential witness spotted near the scene of the shooting, hoping he may shed light on the shooting.

Damond's fiancé said she called 911 late Saturday about what she believed was an active sexual assault.

In an open revelation that marks her first public appearance since Australian woman Justine Damond was gunned down, the head of the Minneapolis Police has spoken out in condemnation of the actions of Mohammad Noor.

"We are talking about one individual's actions in question", she said.

Moving forward, Hodges said, she expects police to activate their body cameras as soon as they begin responding to a call. The chief had been out of town on a personal trip and faced questions about her absence since the shooting. A spokesman for the Hennepin County attorney's office said Thursday that the BCA has not provided a timeline for when the investigation will be completed.

They say the intention of the meeting is to ensure no other family has to endure the sudden loss of a loved one at the hands of police.

"The officer who sees things that aren't there and is afraid of things that go bump in the night", Mr Bennett said. That followed the death of Dontre Hamilton, a mentally ill black man who had been sleeping in a downtown park when an officer shot him 14 times in 2014.

"What I've assured the family is justice", she said.

"In the meantime, we ask that you give us time to grieve in private and to support each other at this very hard time".

Noor has been on the force for 21 months, while Harrity has been an officer for one year.

Harrity's lawyer on Wednesday left open the possibility that the officers had feared an ambush, telling the Minneapolis Star Tribune newspaper that a similar scenario had recently played out in NY.

Justine Ruszczyk's family says they're still grappling with the reality of her death.

Sources with knowledge of the incident told the Star-Tribune that Harrity was "stunned" when Officer Noor shot at Damond.

"All we want to do is bring Justine home to Australia to farewell her in her hometown among family and friends".

The 40-year-old Damond was killed Saturday by Officer Mohamed Noor. "In the meantime, we ask that you give us time to grieve in private and to support each other at this very hard time". Sometimes those changes have been initiated by departments themselves; sometimes they have been ordered by the federal government or through a lawsuit.

There is no known footage of the shooting as the squad vehicle dashboard camera also failed to capture the incident. She then dialed 911 to make sure authorities were responding to the correct address, CBS Minnesota reports.

Justine Damond called the police herself, concerned about a disturbance behind her house. Noor has declined to speak with investigators.

So we are learning more about what happened last weekend when police in Minneapolis shot and killed an Australian woman.

Minneapolis attorney Bob Bennett told The Associated Press in an email Thursday that he is representing Justine Damond's family.

Streets were shut down in her neighbourhood as hundreds, including her to-be stepson Zach, demanded justice for her death chanting: "no justice, no peace, prosecute the police" and holding up signs.

Plunkett said he will ask for a coroner's report from an outside lab on Damond. Castile was shot and killed in July 2016 during a traffic stop. The officer was acquitted in June of manslaughter and other charges.

It was Bennet who helped the family of Philando Castile reach a almost $3m settlement with a Minnesota police department after the black motorist was shot and killed by a police officer during a traffic stop in July 2016. "We can not compel Officer Noor to make a statement". Prosecutors used his statement as evidence against him during his manslaughter trial, but the defense used it, too.

"On our squad cars, you will find the words, 'To protect with courage and serve with compassion.' This did not happen", Harteau said.

Based on the current information, "this should not have happened", she said. Noor fired, striking her in the abdomen.
