Minneapolis mayor seeks answers in fatal police shooting of bride-to-be

Justine Ruzczyk with her fiance Don Damond and his son

The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) of the state Public Safety Department said in a statement that any violation of the camera policy would be investigated by the department's internal affairs bureau.

The BCA did not respond Monday to a request for comment. Her death has been ruled a homicide and both officers involved were placed on paid administrative leave. She was shot in the abdomen and later died.

Her maiden name was Justine Ruszczyk but she chose to use her American fiancé's last name. Damond's relatives, meanwhile, have pleaded for any information about what happened before she was shot and killed. Although legally named Justine Ruszcyk, she had recently started going by her soon-to-be married name in the months leading up to her wedding.

Damond relocated to Minneapolis and worked as a yoga instructor, meditation teacher and personal health and life coach, according to her business website.

Don Damond, who is Ms Damond's fiance, said the family had nearly no information about what had happened.

Justine Damond, 40, called police on Saturday to report a possible assault near her home in one of the city's safest neighborhoods.

"Our lives are forever changed as a result of knowing her, she was so kind and so darn amusing, she made us all laugh with her great wit and her humor", Damond said. "She was treasured and loved, and we will really miss her".

Zach Damond, 22, said Damond was engaged to marry his father, Don Damond, in August, although she had already taken his name. She was so kind, and so damn amusing. And she lost her life being a good neighbour. "She's going to be sorely missed".

Stuart Cohen, reporting for NPR in 2012, noted the likely origin of this difference in perspective: a 1996 shooting massacre in Tasmania, which left 35 people killed and led to sweeping changes to the country's gun laws. The Star Tribune cites three sources when describing what little is known about the incident.

The police officer who fatally shot an Australian woman in Minnesota on Saturday has been identified as Mohamed Noor.

"Sadly, her family and I have been provided nearly no additional information from law enforcement regarding what happened after police arrived", he said.

"We take this seriously with great compassion for all persons who are being touched by this", said Plunkett.

Minneapolis Police have released audio of the moments around the fatal United States police shooting of Australian spiritual healer and meditation coach Justine Damond in a Minneapolis alley.

"Why weren't the police cameras on?" said Mayor Betsy Hodges. She said she was "heartsick" and "deeply disturbed" by the shooting.

"I was told he was a good guy to get to know", Hassan said. "There is a long road of healing ahead, and a lot of work remains to be done".

The fiance of an Australian woman who died at the hands of Minnesota police said he and her family have been given nearly no information about what happened. "I want to know more". Harteau said that she immediately asked for an outside investigation, Fox 9 reported.
