Minneapolis Officer who Shot Australian Woman Turns Self in
The Minneapolis officer had a warrant out for his arrest.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – A Minneapolis police officer who shot and killed an Australian woman in July has turned himself in after a warrant was issued for his arrest, and a news conference was scheduled later Tuesday to announce charges in the case.
Tom Plunkett, an attorney for Officer Mohamed Noor, says he turned himself in Tuesday in the death of Justine Ruszczyk Damond.
Damond was shot July 15, minutes after she called 911 to report a possible sexual assault in the alley behind her home.
The 40-year-old life coach was engaged to be married.
Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman was scheduled to discuss charges in the case at a 2:30 p.m. news conference.
Noor has not talked publicly about the case and declined to be interviewed by state investigators.
