BREAKING: Somali Cop Charged With Murder of Justine Damond
The Minneapolis police officer who fatally shot an Australian woman in July was charged with murder Tuesday after he turned himself in when a warrant was issued for his arrest.
Tom Plunkett, an attorney for Officer Mohamed Noor, said his client turned himself in to police in connection with the 2017 death of Justine Ruszczyk Damond.
Update from StarTribune:
Noor is charged with third degree murder “perpetrating eminently dangerous act and evincing depraved mind” and second-degree manslaughter, “culpable negligence creating unreasonable risk.”
County attorney Mike Freeman announced a 2:30 p.m. news conference Tuesday to discuss the case
