    Investigators Seek Medical and Personnel Files for Officers in Fatal Shooting of Australian Bride-to-Be

    Sept 8, 2017


    Investigators are now looking to examine the medical and personnel records of the two Minneapolis police officers involved in the fatal shooting of an Australian meditation and yoga instructor in July, PEOPLE confirms.

    According to a search warrant obtained by PEOPLE, the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, which is probing the circumstances of the controversial shooting, has asked for “medical files that contain pre-employment psychological exams, the unredacted personnel files, and the pre-employment background investigations” of Mohamed Noor and his partner, Matthew Harrity.

    The BCA has filed five search warrants so far during its investigation into Damond’s death.

    According to the latest search warrant, the Minneapolis Police Department has voluntarily handed over “body camera videos, the patrol vehicle involved in the shooting, audio recordings from 911 calls to MPD, audio recordings of the officers radio traffic and two Apple iPhones issued to the officers by MPD.”

    Noor, who joined the force in 2015, has had three complaints filed against him with the city’s Office of Police Conduct Review, an office spokesperson told PEOPLE in July.

    Two of the complaints remained open, according to the spokesperson, though their current status is not clear. The third complaint was “closed without discipline.”

    Additional details about the complaints were not made available.

    The Minneapolis police union boss has broken his silence, declaring Officer Mohamed Noor should not be charged for shooting Justine Damond dead simply because the Australian yoga instructor was a "fine young woman in a nice neighbourhood".
    In an extraordinary letter published in the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Lieutenant Bob Kroll also questioned the objectivity and "lack of professionalism" of the top prosecutor, Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman, who will decide if Officer Noor will be charged.
    Mr Freeman's comments at a recent Minneapolis town hall meeting where he was quizzed by concerned residents about the July 15 shooting made headlines in the US and Australia and raised the ire of the police union head.

    BBM. Well of course that wasn't THE reason he shouldn't have shot her, IMO. IMO, he shouldn't have shot her at all, whether she was from Australia or Timbuktu.

    Grand jury convened in police killing of Australian woman

    Jan 24, 2018


    MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A Minnesota prosecutor has convened a grand jury as he weighs whether to charge a police officer in the July police shooting of an Australian woman, attorneys said Wednesday, just a month after he pushed back a charging decision and said more investigation was needed.

    Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman declined to confirm the grand jury, citing the secrecy of any such proceeding, but said he still intends to make his own decision on whether to charge the officer.

    Justine Ruszczyk Damond, a 40-year-old life coach, was killed by Minneapolis Officer Mohamed Noor just minutes after she called police to report a possible sexual assault in the alley behind her home. Noor hasn't been charged, and Freeman said weeks ago that more investigating was needed in the case. He also told activists in a recorded conversation that he didn't have enough evidence and investigators "haven't done their job."

    The attorney for Matthew Harrity, Noor's partner on the night of the shooting, told the Star Tribune that Harrity got a grand jury subpoena Wednesday. Attorney Fred Bruno told the newspaper the subpoena was a surprise.

    Lt. Bob Kroll, the police union president, said in a statement that officers were being issued subpoenas. He said they would cooperate.
