Somali American police officer Mohamed Noor shot Aussie Justine Damond in July 2017.
Damond called the police to report a possible assault down the alley behind her home.
When she went out to meet the police car in her pajamas Noor reached over his partner and shot her dead.
Mohamed was the first Somali officer in his precinct.
Damond was shot and killed while wearing her pajamas and speaking to another police officer. Damond called 911 that night to report a possible assault in an alley behind her home on July 15, reports The Minneapolis Star-Tribune.
Noor’s partner was described as “stunned” by the shooting.
In May Mohamed Noor was found guilty of third degree murder of Justine Damond (Ruszczyk).
On Friday Mohamed Noor was sentenced to more than 12 years in prison in June 2019 for the fatal shooting of an unarmed Australian yoga teacher after she had called police to report a possible sexual assault near her home.
The Minnesota Supreme Court tossed the murder conviction against Somali Police Officer Mohamed Noor on Wednesday.
NBC News reported:
The Minnesota Supreme Court on Wednesday reversed the third-degree murder conviction of former Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor, who fatally shot a 911 caller four years ago.
Noor was also convicted of second-degree manslaughter in the death of Justine Ruszczyk Damond on July 15, 2017, and that verdict still stands.
The former officer will be re-sentenced for the manslaughter conviction alone, as opposed to the 12 1/2-year penalty handed down to him in 2019 for murder.
Noor is now looking at a sentence of between 41 months to 57 months for that lesser conviction, a Hennepin County Attorney’s Office spokeswoman said.
Some killer cops are better than others.
