Muslim cop Mohamed Noor shot multiple times, while body cameras turned off, Minneapolis woman
Justine Damond was shot and killed while wearing her pajamas and speaking to another police officer after calling 911 to report a possible assault in an alley behind her home on July 15, reports The Minneapolis Star-Tribune.
Noor’s partner was allegedly “stunned” when Noor opened fire, KARE11 reported through a source.
( Pamela Geller ) KSTP TV reports that a “source with direct knowledge of the shooting said Monday that the woman was shot multiple times.” Mohamed Noor’s partner was allegedly “stunned” when Noor opened fire, KARE11 reported through a source.
In direct violation of department regulation, Mohamed Noor did not turn on his body camera.
There were three complaints against this Muslim cop, why was nothing done? Were higher ups afraid of being called islamophobic? Were they afraid that Mayor Betsy Hodges, who held celebrations in praise of the hiring of Noor, would come after them for islamophobia?
The Minneapolis police officer said to be the one who fired the shots that killed 40-year-old Justine Damond Saturday night in southwest Minneapolis had three complaints on file, according to city records.
Multiple sources confirmed to KSTP Monday morning that the identity of the officer is Mohamed Noor.
Noor joined the department in March 2015 and is currently assigned to the 5th Precinct in the southwest part of the city.
City records show one complaint against him was dismissed with no disciplinary action being taken. The other two remain open.
Minneapolis Police Chief Janee Harteau is calling the officer-involved shooting “clearly a tragic death.”
The chief said in a statement Monday afternoon:
I want to acknowledge the pain and frustration that family and community members have following the fatal officer involved shooting on Saturday night. This is clearly a tragic death.
I also want to assure you that I understand why so many people have so many questions at this point. I have many of the same questions and it is why we immediately asked for an external and independent investigation into the officer-involved shooting death. I’ve asked for the investigation to be expedited to provide transparency and to answer as many questions as quickly as we can.
