Event Set To Memorialize Woman Killed By Minneapolis Police
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – An Australian woman shot and killed by a Minneapolis police officer responding to her 911 call will be remembered at a public memorial at a lake near her home.
The life of 40-year-old Justine Damond will be celebrated Friday night at Lake Harriet Band Shell in southwest Minneapolis.
Damond was fatally shot by Officer Mohamed Noor on July 15 after she called 911 to report a possible sexual assault near her home.
Damond was engaged to be married in August. Her fiancé, Don Damond, and her father, John Ruszczyk, are among those scheduled to speak at the memorial.
Attendees are encouraged to wear blue to honor Justine Damond. The memorial will end with a silent walk around Lake Harriet.
