Cop Who Shot Justine Damond Identified; Many Questions About her Death Remain

Top Tier Gear USA


Earlier today, we reported that Justine Damond, an Australian woman, was shot by a police officer in Minneapolis after she called 911 to report hearing a possible assault in the alley behind her home.

Three sources with knowledge of the incident said Sunday that two officers in one squad car, responding to the 911 call, pulled into the alley. Damond, in her pajamas, went to the driver’s side door and was talking to the driver. The officer in the passenger seat pulled his gun and shot Damond through the driver’s side door, sources said.

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension confirmed that there is no body camera footage because neither officer had their camera switched on. As of now, it is being reported that there isn’t any dashcam footage of the incident either. And, no weapons were found at the scene.

Both officers involved in the incident have been placed on paid administrative leave.

The name of the cop who shot Damond has been released, reports the Star Tribune:

The Minneapolis police officer who shot and killed a 40-year-old woman in the alley behind her home Saturday night has been identified as Officer Mohamed Noor. Meanwhile, state investigators have confirmed that they did not find any weapons at the scene.

Noor, the first Somali police officer to patrol the 5th Precinct in southwest Minneapolis, joined the department in March 2015.

But this is not the first time in his brief stint as a cop that he’s been in trouble. He is the subject of a pending federal complaint.

The open federal case in the United States District Court, District of Minnesota was filed against Noor, two other police officers, and the City of Minneapolis, by a woman named Teresa M. Graham, reports Heavy.

Graham’s case shares an eerie detail in common with Demond’s: She had also called police to report a disturbance.

She alleged that she had called 911 “to report an unknown young male who was sitting on her retaining wall behind her house, smoking marijuana and appeared to be under the influence of drugs.” She did not receive communication or a visit from police, she said, so she assumed they “did not do anything in response to her call.”

The Star Tribune also mentions the pending complaint:

Noor has been sued once in his short career with the police department, stemming from a May 25, 2017 incident, in which he and two other officers came to a woman’s home and took her to the hospital, which the woman alleges constituted false imprisonment, assault and battery. According to the recently filed and ongoing lawsuit, the officers claimed they had reason to believe the woman was suffering a mental health crisis — which she denied — and Noor “grabbed her right wrist and upper arm,” exacerbating a previous shoulder injury in the process.

According to the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, there have been 10 officer-involved shootings in 2017 so far in Minnesota. Those shootings include both fatal and non-fatal incidents. The BCA has investigated nine of those 10 incidents.

Minnesota has had its share of notable police brutality incidents. One particularly tragic case is that of Philando Castile, who was fatally shot by former MN cop Jeronimo Yanez last year (Yanez was recently fired and given a payout of nearly $50k, but was not charged with killing Castile – a fact that baffles many). Earlier this month, a cop in Minneapolis shot a woman’s physician-prescribed emotional support dogs in her backyard. The cop claims the dogs were charging him, but the homeowner’s surveillance camera footage proves they were not charging and were not a threat. Thankfully, the animals survived, but they suffered serious injuries, not to mention the emotional trauma of being shot in their own backyard.

What is going on in Minnesota?

So many questions remain: Why did Noor shoot Damond? Why were the officers’ body cameras turned off? Why isn’t there dashcam footage of the incident? Who is the cop who was driving the squad car that night, and what does he/she have to say about this?

    He was “fearing for his life”……. from a beautiful Australian lady wearing pajamas. Man, when this thing finally implodes, all hell is going to break loose……………

  • James

    The city is broke like many others. It has become the cops duty to guard stop signs, run rarDar guns for revaBucks. Not do any thing for the citizen. So she had it coming. Interference with there next promotion based on money to there Judge they bring in . A better turdwraper to ride in & all that. So she earned being shot in a Americans cops mind.

    Whoever wrote on their driveway with chalk knew the score. It said, “White privilege didn’t save my mummy (mommy, they’re from Australia)”.
    I also was wondering what the cop that was driving thought about having a gun go off pretty much in his face. If the cop in the passenger seat shot her through the driver side window, the gun must have been pretty close to his face if he was pointing the gun with his arm extended. At the very least it would have been pretty loud inside of the car. I would be pretty pissed off if someone did that to me.
    I would also like to point out that this cop appears to be from one of those countries that thinks women should be treated like shit. If that’s the case, it isn’t surprising that he has had trouble with women before. And if he is allowed to continue being a cop, it won’t be the last. I wonder what other incidents he has been involved in that we haven’t heard about.

      This is what makes me think it was an accidental discharge. Inside the car and already being in trouble this looks like a lie to cover up extreme incompetence that surely would result in immediate termination–he put another cops life at risk.

        In the fuller version, the witness said that he had fired multiple shots.
        But you go ahead and make excuses.

          Lies, cover up, incompetence, termination. These do not logically support your erroneous presumption. Critical thinking does not equal support. I have an active federal civil rights complaint in the federal district court of Eastern Washington against my county Sheriff and his deputies. Apology accepted. Let’s move on together.

        And if that’s the case, of course the other cop would cover for him, even though he should turn him in for putting him at risk like that. The cops cover for each other even when they do some really horrible things. It’s gotten to the point where the police need to be constantly policed because they commit more crimes than the people they are supposed to be policing.
        If this continues to get worse, the cops are going to have to watch their backs, because the people they have abused so badly for so long are gonna be out for blood. People can only be stabbed in the back for so long by the police before it’s payback time.
        If they were smart, they would see this coming. But they aren’t. And also, they are egotistical, and they think they can control it. They can’t. They’re in for a rude awakening.

    “And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”– Aleksandr I. Solzhenitsyn, The Gulag Archipelago

      Such a great book.

      • PJ London

        Two great eye-openers, the book makes you look around and see that it is happening to you, but with a Silk glove rather than an Iron fist.
        It also makes you wonder whether you will ever have that kind of strength.
        I made it through a brutal SF selection at 18, but Solzhenitsyn, with cancer and everything makes me feel a wuss.

  • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    Summary execution for this murdering scum.

    Anything less is an injustice to Justine Damond.

    • PJ London

      I will give you odds of 10:1 that he feared for his life.

      • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

        I know – if a small white woman in PJs (no pun intended) walked up to my car, I’d be afraid, too – and man would be.

  • James

    It does need posted on a big billboard at all intrnational airports Welcome to America. Be warned in sight of a American cop your life is worthless.

  • Trent McKay

    This is the new “Shoot First” Military training the police now get. “Screw the public, we will make sure you get off, just say you were scared of the mean woman!!” Do you still wonder why the Police were never meant to be Militaristic and were at one time known as “PEACE OFFICERS” instead of “SCUMBAG BULLIES!”

  • Phil_Ossifer

    Minnesota was forced by the feds to take in thousands of Somalis so it isn’t surprising that the state of Minnesota and its cities are under pressure to “affirmative action” these turd-worlders. Even though lead bullets were the immediate cause of the victim’s death what really killed her was Political Correctness. We’re now seeing the ultimate price of the Holy Grail of the Left, “diversity.”

  • archer

    According to a guest I heard on, they have been training these Somali’s to be cops to keep the rest of them in check. Seems unlike our own African Americans who riot in their own area’s, the Somali’s like to visit upscale area’s and cause havoc. The solution of course is to just deport anyone rioting, we don’t need them and they will always be a problem and a burden. Send them back.
