Australian woman fatally shot by police in Minneapolis after calling 911

A woman was shot and killed by a Minneapolis police officer on Saturday after she called 911 to report a possible assault near her home just before midnight, authorities said.

The woman was fatally struck near her home in Minneapolis’ Fulton neighborhood after two police officers responded to the 911 call at around 11:30 p.m., according to authorities.

Officials have not released the woman’s identity, but ABC’s Minnesota affiliate KSTP identified her as a 40-year-old Australian native who had been living in the area with her fiancé. The two were planning to get married next month, according to KSTP.

"My mom is dead because a police officer shot her for reasons I don't know," Damond’s stepson, Zach Damond, told KSTP on Sunday.

The Minneapolis Police Department told ABC News on Sunday that both officers had been placed on paid administrative leave pending investigation.

The Minnesota Department of Public Safety Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, which is investigating the incident along with the MPD, said that the officers’ body cameras and the squad camera were not on at the time of the shooting. Investigators are working to determine whether any video of the incident exists, the department said.

The BCA said the investigation is in its "very early stages" and more information will become available "once initial interviews with incident participants and any witnesses are complete,” according to a statement released Sunday.

The department said the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s Office would conduct an autopsy to determine the woman’s identity and cause of death. It said the information would be released after her family had been notified.

Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges called the shooting a "tragedy” in a statement released late Sunday.

"Tonight, I’m sad, and disturbed. This is a tragedy—for the family, for a neighborhood I know well, and for our whole city,” Hodges said. “My thoughts are with the family and the community.”

More than 300 people gathered for a vigil on Sunday evening near the site of the shooting.

"Policing, the concept, is an unchecked variable in this nation," one vigil attendee said, according to ABC affiliate KSTP. "What we need to do is be together, and what they've spent centuries doing is keeping us apart."

This time the police murdered a white woman who obviously was not armed, drunk, or had done anything wrong.

By now it should be pretty clear there is something fundamentally wrong with police in the US.
Since it is so universally systemic, it has to be in their training, which comes from federal sources.

The fact the bodycams were turned off, once again, should not even be possible.

They are incorrectly selecting military veterans, (who should be automatically disqualified), and training them with combat veterans who are totally unqualified to teach the correct legal procedures for civilian use.

The reality is that police should not even be armed at all, and instead should just be gathering information so that suspects can be identified and picked up for questioning later.

I feel terrible about this but we as of yet don't have enough information to know what happened or why.

And whose fault is that?
Bodycams don't turn themselves off.

The police ended up killing the person who had called them, when there was no dangerous person even near by, since the assailant had long gone.

They can't even claim accidental misfire, because in a situation like this, the safety should have been on, and the chamber not even loaded.

It is only in war combat zone, (or shooting range), that anyone should ever walk around with a loaded chamber and safety off.

I'll respond by simply posing a question;

Who shoots and kills more people, cops or average citizens?

No they don't. emoticon I hope this freaking' idiot cop is on administrative leave.

Cops today are only trained to kill.

It doesn't matter if she's white, black, or purple with pink polka dots this sh*t needs to stop now. emoticon

This is out of control and beyond a disturbing trend.

It's a tragedy and a travesty. emoticon

Yeah, getting paid for not working will teach him.

Why isn't turning off our body camera "premeditation" ?
The public tries but it just does not have the juice to make sure we get justice even if one of ours is killed.
Think about it.
It is not perfect, but it points to how being a cop is a license to kill, now, in America.

Care to share your source for this?
