Bodycam footage shows attempts to save woman shot by officer

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The fiance of a woman who was shot by a Minneapolis police officer after she called 911 to report a possible crime cradled his head in his hands as body-camera footage of attempts to save her was played at the officer’s trial.

Don Damond declined to watch Thursday’s playing of the chaotic footage of the unsuccessful efforts to save Justine Ruszczyk Damond, who was shot minutes after calling 911 to report a possible rape near her home. Justine was a dual citizen of the U.S. and Australia who had taken her fiance’s last name ahead of their wedding, set for a month after her 2017 death.

The Star Tribune reported that one officer’s body camera showed Officer Mohamed Noor and his partner taking turns performing CPR before firefighters arrived and took over.

Noor is charged with murder and manslaughter.
