The Minneapolis Police Department's first Somali-American police officer assigned to Southwest Minneapolis's Fifth Precinct, Mohamed Noor, has been found guilty of third-degree murder for shooting 40-year-old Australian yoga teacher Justine Damond Ruszczyk after she called police to report a possible crime.
Noor made history again on Tuesday by becoming "the first former Minnesota police officer found guilty of an on-duty murder," according to the Star Tribune.
From the Star Tribune:
Mohamed Noor became the first former Minnesota police officer found guilty of an on-duty murder Tuesday as a Hennepin County jury convicted him for the fatal shooting of Justine Ruszczyk Damond in 2017.
Noor, 33, sat expressionless with his hands clasped in front of him as the verdict was read in court just before 5 p.m. One juror hung his head while others sat calmly.More from CNN:
Testifying for the prosecution, Lt. Derrick Hacker of the Crystal Police Department in Minnesota said that Noor's use of deadly force was "excessive and objectively unreasonable."WND reported in 2017 that Noor was a "diversity hire" who was hired not because of his qualifications but because of a "city affirmative-action program" which aims to "promote equal employment opportunities for women, minorities and disabled persons."
