Witness To Justine Damond Shooting 'Cooperating' With US Authorities

Witness To Justine Damond Shooting 'Cooperating' With US Authorities

"I've lost confidence in the chief's ability to lead us further", Hodges said in a statement Friday. Despite the MPD's many accomplishments under my leadership over these years and my love for the city, I have to put the communities we serve first. She also said she won't resign.

"Last Saturday's tragedy, as well as some other recent incidents, have caused me to engage in deep reflection", she said in a statement.

A mystery cyclist filmed part of the fatal encounter between USA police and Australian Justine Damond, offering a potential breakthrough in the investigation. Mohamed Noor, the officer who shot a young, white Australian woman, Justine Damond, is a Somali immigrant - part of an invasion of refugees welcomed by radical leftist city leaders.

Officer Mohamed Noor, who shot Ms Damond in the abdomen in an upmarket neighbourhood of the city, has refused to be interviewed by investigators, as is his legal right. Soon after, Damond was pronounced dead at the scene.

The witness also stayed and watched as officers attempted to administer medical assistance to Damond. But minutes into the speech, a man in the crowd shouted over Hodges and called for her resignation.

Noor has so far refused to talk to investigators, but Officer Matthew Harrity, who was driving their squad auto, described three simultaneous events when they arrived at the scene eight minutes after Ms Damond's second call for help.

Investigators said there is no footage of the shooting because neither officer activated their body cameras until after the shooting, which may have violated police department policy. (Her maiden name was Ruszczyk, but she'd already taken the name of her fiancee, Don Damond.) Justine Damond's family in Australia is now demanding a federal investigation into the shooting. "These were the actions and judgments of one individual".

Police chief Ms Harteau - who admitted the teacher "did not have to die " and said the death "should not have happened" - confirmed her departure in a Facebook post on the police department's page. She says she's relied on him to explain police initiatives and has always been impressed. Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull called the shooting "shocking" and "inexplicable".

The shootings came as police departments are under increased scrutiny for fatal confrontations, particularly with minorities.

Once protestors left the office, Ms Hodges confirmed she would not be resigning. "Just think what can happen if we get our neighbors involved and if we get our friends involved..." he said to cheers. "The former chief wasn't doing her job, but we understand it's beyond the chief - the problem is [the] institution".

The head of Minneapolis police has resigned following fatal shooting of an unarmed Australian woman by an officer.

Police-community relations in Minnesota have been heightened for some time over last summer's police shooting death of Philando Castile, who was a passenger in a vehicle stopped for a traffic violation; Castile told the police officer that he was legally permitted to carry a firearm, but a jury acquitted the officer in Castile's death.
