Justine Damond shooting: jury reaches verdict over death of Australian shot by US police officer

Noor, 33, is charged with second-degree murder, third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter for the July 15, 2017 killing of Justine Ruszczyk Damond.

Mohamed Noor, the ex-Minneapolis officer charged in the shooting death of Justine Ruszczyk, was convicted of third-degree murder and manslaughter.

The Minneapolis police officer who shot and killed an unarmed woman in July 2017 was convicted of murder on Tuesday, the coda to a dramatic, years-long case that provoked worldwide indignation and forced changes in the city's police department.

Minnesota's third-degree murder charge means causing the death of another through a risky act "without regard for human life but without intent to cause" death. The incident cost Minneapolis Police Chief Janeé Harteau her job and contributed to the electoral defeat of the city's mayor a few months later.

Noor's sentencing is set for June 7. Neither Noor nor his partner, Matthew Harrity, mentioned it to investigators at the scene, with Harrity first mentioning it three days later in an interview with state investigators.

Australian life coach Justine Damond, 40, was shot and killed in Minneapolis in the US.

Prosecutors argued that Noor acted unreasonably when he fired, and was too quick to assume that Damond was a threat.

The Associated Press reported that the prosecution "pounced on that during her cross-examination, asking Noor if he believed "concern" was enough to fire his weapon".

Noor had testified in court that he shot Justine Damond Ruszczyk, an Australian who had moved to the U.S. to marry her fiancee, to protect his partner because he had feared an ambush when responding to Ms Damond Ruszczyk's emergency call.

Defense attorneys argued Noor was frightened by a loud thump or bang on the squad vehicle before the shooting. Noor said he then saw a woman in a pink shirt with blond hair appear at Harrity's window and raise her right arm.

The jury of 10 men and two women took less than one day to reach their decision.
