Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nydailynews.com: “Ex-Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor released from prison in fatal shooting of Justine Damond”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Former Minneapolis Police Officer Mohamed Noor, who shot Australian national Justine Damond after she called 911 in 2017 to report a possible sexual assault outside her apartment building, has been paroled.

Noor, 36, had initially been found guilty in 2019 of third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in the July 15, 2017, slaying of the unarmed Damond, 40, after she startled him when approaching his cruiser.

The dual U.S.-Australian citizen and yoga teacher had moved to the U.S. from Australia to marry her fiancé, Don Damond. They were to be wed a month later.

Noor was sentenced to 12½ years in prison, but in September 2021 the Minnesota Supreme Court threw out the third-degree murder conviction on the grounds that evidence was insufficient to sustain the charge known as “depraved mind murder.” His sentence was revised to four years and nine months in prison on the manslaughter charge, which he was serving in North Dakota.
