Attorney says Minneapolis officers' fear of ambush prior to fatal shooting 'reasonable'

Attorney says Minneapolis officers' fear of ambush prior to fatal shooting 'reasonable'

Chief Harteau said she has only spoken with Mr Noor "in passing" since the shooting, but hopes he will give a statement.

Minneapolis Police Chief Janeé Harteau on Thursday called the shooting death of Justine Damond "unnecessary" and bluntly said it contradicted the mission and training given to her officers.

The lawyer, Bob Bennett, reached a almost $3 million settlement in June for the family of black motorist Philando Castile from the St. Paul, Minnesota, suburb of St. Anthony.

Relations between police and the broader community had plummeted to the point where Minneapolis officers were told they were not welcome at the city's annual gay pride parade last month.

Harrity's lawyer, Fred Bruno, told the Star Tribune that "it's certainly reasonable" to assume the police would be concerned about being ambushed: "It was only a few weeks ago when a female NYPD cop and mother of twins was executed in her auto in a very similar scenario".

The Minneapolis officers are both on standard administrative leave, pending the outcome of the probe. Harteau said she's asked that the process be expedited to provide transparency.

Though some of Damond's friends and neighbors were in attendance, there were also many community groups there to show solidarity, including members of Black Lives Matter Twin Cities and the Minneapolis NAACP.

But Klinger, a former Los Angeles patrol officer, said it's "not unusual at all" to put younger officers together. Damond, who was the 911 caller, approached Harrity in the driver's side window of the squad vehicle "immediately afterward", according to the statement.

The Hennepin County Medical Examiner has ruled her death as homicide, confirming that she died of a single bullet wound to the abdomen. Louis, said police officers can't be compelled to testify in an outside investigation. The newspaper didn't write any articles wondering if the Latin community would face backlash or retribution after Yanez shot Castile seven times during a traffic stop. He could be fired if he refuses, but anything he says can't be used in a criminal case. Jurors apparently accepted Yanez's claims that he saw Castile's gun and believed his life was in danger.

Mayor Betsy Hodges was in the crowd but declined to be interviewed.

"He joined the police force to serve the community and to protect the people he serves", his lawyer, Tom Plunkett, said in a statement.

Police did not respond to questions Wednesday about the internal investigation.

First Hyperloop tested; Missouri a candidate to land high-speed transport system
The company's "Devloop" test track outside Las Vegas is 1,640 feet long and simulates vacuum conditions. The company said it hit almost 2G's of acceleration and a speed of 70 miles per hour during the test.

Meanwhile, details that have emerged raised new questions about whether proper police procedures were followed.

The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension did not confirm the KSTP report. Harrity's attorney, Fred Bruno, told the Star Tribune it was "certainly reasonable" for the officers to fear a possible ambush.

You shouldn't shoot unarmed people who call the cops, he added. The squad lights were off when the noise startled him, Harrity said.

"OK, I've already got an officer on the way", the dispatcher said.

Minneapolis Police Chief Janee Harteau has called for a quick investigation to provide "transparency". That man stopped and watched as officers attended to Damond.

'The fact that we don't have body camera footage of the shooting could be the result of one or more of the following: a gap in our body cams policy, a gap in training, a violation of our policy, or some combination of these things.

Ruszczyk made two 911 calls Saturday night to report a possible sexual assault near her home, according to transcripts released by the city Wednesday. Damond had called 911 to report a possible rape in the alley behind her house minutes before Noor and partner Matthew Harrity arrived. He was one of only about 20 Somali police officers in Minnesota.
