Luke Grant with Ian Raguse
As we went to air on Saturday morning, news broke regarding the sentencing of Justine Ruszczyk Damond’s killer, Mohamed Noor. During the trial, we learnt that Noor was born in war-torn Somalia, fled to Kenya as a five-year-old refugee with his family before settling in the US where he overcame racism and a lack of English to become a celebrated Minneapolis police recruit. Justine Ruszczyk Damond, 40, was shot dead in an alley. Noor, 33, fired the fatal bullet.
