Mohamed Noor found guilty of murder of Australian woman Justine Ruszczyk Damond

Former Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor has been found guilty of murdering Australian woman Justine Ruszczyk Damond.

The jury found Noor guilty of third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter over her shooting death.

He was acquitted of one charge of second-degree intentional murder.

40-year-old Ms Damond Ruszczyk, a dual citizen of Australia and the US, called 911 about a possible sexual assault near her home in July 2017.

Noor shot her when she approached his police car, testifying he became fearful when he heard a loud bang and saw a woman with her arms raised.

A jury of 10 men and two women deliberated for about 11 hours before finding the shooting was not justified under the circumstances.

He’s due to be sentenced on June 7.
