Police shoot bride-to-be dead after she called them for help

According to the StarTribune, the officer who shot and killed 40-year-old Justine Damond joined the police department in March 2015. But when police arrived, an officer fatally shot her. Police have not explained what happened and the officers' body cameras were turned off at the time. The squad camera reportedly did not capture the incident, and the officers' body cameras were not turned on.

The Star Tribune quoted three sources it did not name as saying Damond was in her pajamas when the police vehicle responding to her 911 call pulled into the alley.

Justine Damond, a Sydney woman who'd been living with her fiancé and son in Minneapolis, was shot dead after calling 911 to report an alleyway attack.

Both Mr Noor and his partner have been placed on administrative leave while the shooting is investigated.

"Our lives are forever changed as a result of knowing her", he said.

"As mayor of our city, a wife, and a grandmother, I am heartsick and deeply disturbed by what occurred last night", she said.

BCA tells ABC News they will not be releasing the 911 call until the conclusion of the investigation. Now, residents and law enforcement officials are demanding answers from the cops who killed her, according to CBS News.

Minneapolis mayor Betsy Hodges wants to know why the officers' body cameras were off. A Minneapolis officer ultimately fired his weapon, killing Damond.

The Department of Public Safety's Bureau of Criminal Apprehension said an investigation was under way and authorities were looking into whether there was any video of the incident.

Ms Damond's fiancé, Don Damond, has been left heartbroken by her death. The friend said that Justine often spoke of how much better things were in her native Australia where gun restrictions are much tighter.

Damond's personal website says she trained as a veterinarian and practised yoga and meditation for 17 years. The station did not provide details on the nature of the complaints but said one was dismissed with no disciplinary action and the other two are pending.

Hundreds took to the streets of Minneapolis on Sunday to protest Damond's shooting.

Local residents held a vigil over the weekend where hundreds gathered to remember the woman and call for police reform, KSTP reports.
