The woman, identified by The Sydney Morning as Justine Damond, was shot around 11:30 p.m. Saturday after a pair of Minneapolis police officers responded to a 911 call near the 5100 block of Washburn Avenue South, police said. Damond, who was in her pajamas, went to the driver's side door to talk to the officer. The two officers in the incident have been placed on paid administrative leave, while Minneapolis police are pledging a speedy investigation into the incident. The officers were wearing body cameras, but they were not turned on during the incident, he added. On July 6, 2016, St. Anthony police officer Jeronimo Yanez, who is Latino, shot Philando Castile, a 32-year-old black man, several times during a traffic stop in Falcon Heights, a suburb of St. Paul. Meanwhile, Ruszczyk can be seen in the below video, titled "Justine Damond 7 2 17".

She said there are a lot of unanswered questions - many of which she's pushing to get the answers to as quickly as possible.

Family, residents and this city's mayor are demanding to know why a woman was fatally shot by a police officer over the weekend and why the officer's body camera was off at the time, reports CBS Minnesota. "I know the neighborhood well".

The below Facebook video shows 22-year-old Zach Damond, son of 50-year-old Don, speaking about Justine - a woman he called his best friend.

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is investigating the officer-involved shooting.

"A woman should not call for help and end up murdered", she said.

Bellinger has hit.261 with 25 home runs, 58 RBI and 50 runs scored in 257 plate appearances so far this season. Sano is in just his third season and already approaching career highs in home runs and RBI.

Damond, 40, ran meditation workshops at the Lake Harried Spiritual Community, which in a Facebook post called her "one of the most loving people you would ever meet". "We can't even imagine LHSC without her".

Damond, a trained veterinarian who also worked as a yoga instructor and life coach, was planning to marry her fiancee next month.

A CNN report indicated that the Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office will conduct an autopsy on the victim.

Justine Ruszczyk called 911 on Saturday night because she thought a sexual assault might be taking place in a back alley near her home, the source said.

Justine was preparing to marry Don, and the well-liked woman began to use the name Justine Damond.

"It is hard and challenging to have few facts at this point", Hodges said at the press conference.

"I'm so done with all this violence, it's so much bulls-t".

Officials said were looking into the circumstances of the incident and the reason the officers had not kept their body cams on, as is the protocol during such incidents.

A Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade spokesperson says consular assistance is being offered to the family involved.

"As mayor of our city, a wife, and a grandmother, I am heartsick and deeply disturbed by what occurred last night", she posted.

Around 200 people held a vigil outside her home following the shooting.
