    A former Minneapolis police officer who shot and killed an unarmed woman who had called 911 said Friday he "knew in an instant that I was wrong" and apologized to her family, just moments before a judge brushed off a defense request for leniency and ordered him to prison for 12½ years. The stiff sentence for Mohamed Noor capped a case that had been fraught by race from the start. Noor, a Somali American, shot Justine Ruszczyk Damond , a white, upper-middle-class dual citizen of the U.S. and Australia, when she approached his squad car in the alley behind her...

    FULL TITLE: Minnesota cop gets 12 years in prison for shooting dead innocent Australian yoga instructor who called 911 about a disturbance outside her home A former Minneapolis police officer was sentenced to more than 12 years in prison this morning for the fatal shooting of an unarmed Australian-American yoga teacher after she had called police to report a possible sexual assault. Mohamed Noor, 33, was convicted on April 30 of third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter for the 2017 killing 40-year-old Justine Ruszczyk Damond outside her home near Minneapolis. Noor was acquitted of a more serious charge of second-degree intentional...

    Two days before Mohamed Noor is to be sentenced, attorneys for the former Minneapolis police officer convicted in the fatal shooting of Justine Ruszczyk Damond have asked a judge to consider an unusual sentence that would only have Noor locked up for two weeks a year. In their memorandum in support of a "mitigated sentencing departure," attorneys Thomas Plunkett and Peter Wold asked the court to consider Noor's lack of a criminal history, remorse and community support. In the first of two proposed sentences, the attorneys asked for no prison time, instead requiring Noor to turn himself in to the...

    Attorneys for the former Minneapolis police officer convicted of fatally shooting an unarmed woman in 2017 plan to ask a sentencing judge for no prison time. If that’s not granted, they’re seeking less prison time than state sentencing guidelines recommend. Mohamed Noor’s lawyers filed a motion Thursday asking for a “dispositional departure” when he is sentenced June 7. He was convicted of third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in the fatal shooting of Justine Ruszczyk Damond, a dual citizen of the U.S. and Australia. She had called 911 to report a possible sexual assault in the alley behind her house.

    Minneapolis: Muslim cop who killed unarmed woman says he shot her to “stop the threat” This proves the truth of what I have said all along about this case: Mohamed Noor was not competent to be a police officer. If he had not been a Somali and a Muslim, he never would have been on the force at all. Identity politics kills. If there is any lesson to be drawn from the killing of Justine Ruszczyk Damond, that is it. The city of Minneapolis was so eager to have a Somali Muslim police officer on the force that it hired...

    Former Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor took the stand Thursday afternoon to testify in his own defense in the trial for the July 2017 shooting death of Australia native Justine Ruszczyk Damond. It is the first time he has spoken on the record about the fatal shooting. The State of Minnesota rested its case at 12:08 p.m. Thursday after questioning finished with their second use-of-force expert, Timothy Longo. Longo's last words to jury were that he had no statements from Noor in reaching his conclusions. The defense began to present their case when court resumed at 12:45 p.m., calling Noor...

    A judge is allowing prosecutors to add a second-degree murder charge against Mohamed Noor, the Minneapolis police officer who shot and killed Justine Ruszczyk, according to court records. Judge Kathryn Quaintance signed an order allowing an amended complaint Friday. In the order, Quaintance stated, "the State argued that a sufficient basis exists for the additional charge." Last week, prosecutors argued that since Noor is already charged with third-degree murder, three of the four elements of a second-degree charge are satisfied. Their petition argued the shooting also satisfied the fourth element - that Noor intended to kill Ruszczyk. Noor and his...

    Prosecutors are seeking to add a second-degree murder charge against the Minneapolis police officer who shot and killed Justine Ruszczyk. A court filing states that since Mohamed Noor is already charged with third-degree murder, three of the four elements of a second-degree charge are satisfied. The filing argues the shooting also satisfies the fourth element - that Noor intended to kill Ruszczyk. "The circumstances surrounding the crime show that the defendant acted with the intent to kill," prosecutors wrote. "He fired at Ms. Ruszczyk from no more than six feet away. He fired with tragic accuracy, managing to send a...

    A Hennepin County judge says the case against former Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor will go forward. The former Minneapolis police officer shot and killed Justine Ruszczyk Damond last year. The Australian native had called 911 to report a possible sexual assault behind her southwest Minneapolis home. Noor’s attorneys say he acted reasonably when he shot Ruszczyk Damond. They’re asking the judge to dismiss the charges. However, prosecutors say Noor acted recklessly in using deadly force. Noor’s defense attorneys filed motions they hoped would lead to the case against their client being dismissed. Instead, they sat with the former Minneapolis...

    Attorneys head to court Thursday to argue over whether a criminal case should go forward against a former Minneapolis police officer who fatally shot an unarmed Australian woman who had called 911 to report a possible sexual assault in the alley behind her home. Mohamed Noor’s attorneys maintain he acted reasonably July 15, 2017, when he shot Justine Ruszczyk Damond. They’ve asked the judge to dismiss the charges. But prosecutors say Noor acted recklessly in using deadly force against Damond, a 40-year-old life coach and dual citizen who was engaged to be married. Here's a look at the issues in...

    Former Minneapolis cop's behavior before shooting death of Australian woman raised concerns, court filings say. (Full title). ... The former Minneapolis police officer charged in the shooting death of Justine Ruszczyk Damond once put a gun to a driver’s head during a traffic stop and sometimes ignored calls, according to court filings indicating that psychiatrists and training officers voiced concerns about his fitness for duty. The revelations surfaced after defense attorneys filed a motion Wednesday seeking to dismiss murder and manslaughter charges against Mohamed Noor, who is accused of shooting Damond in July 2017 after she dialed 911 to report...

    Lawyers for the former Minneapolis police officer charged in the shooting death of Justine Damond have filed a response to the state outlining “factual misstatements and mischaracterizations.” Mohamed Noor’s attorneys dispute several items brought up in the state’s court filing last week, including a motor vehicle stop on May 18, 2017, four training days and “misleading discussion” of his psych evaluation. Noor’s lawyers want this information declared inadmissible in court and not considered for probable cause. In Wednesday’s filing, the lawyers call the state's claims “disgraceful” and “inaccurate," stating that “these lies by omission and clear misstatements of fact actively...

The request was filed in August in U.S. District Court. The family of Justine Damond - the Australian woman killed in the July 2017 shooting - has filed a lawsuit in federal court against Noor, partner Matthew Harrity, former police chief Janee Harteau, current police chief Medaria Arradondo and the city.
