First Somali-American Muslim Officer Kills yoga instructor … what happens next is Disturbing!

By

Mohamed Noor was the first Somali-American Muslim officer in his precinct at the Minneapolis Police Department.

Justine Damond, was engaged to be married in August.

Australian by birth, Justine, a yoga instructor, was shot and killed while wearing her pajamas and speaking to the other police officer in the squad car after calling 911 to report a possible assault in an alley behind her home on July 15, reports The Minneapolis Star-Tribune, who goes on to say:

“What exactly led to the shooting remains unclear. No weapons were recovered from the scene”, according to the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, the agency called in to investigate the shooting. A cellphone was found near Damond’s body.  Although Noor and the other officer in the squad car were wearing body cameras, “they were not turned on during the shooting”, the BCA said. Also, the squad’s dashcam camera didn’t capture what happened.

Details are just coming in but Noor and his partner are being held and are on PAID administrative leave, yet Noor’s  attorney, Tom Plunkett, confirmed Monday that Noor fired his weapon, killing Justine Damond.

In a statement, Plunkett said: “We take this seriously with great compassion for all persons who are being touched by this.”
