A month after the acquittal of the officer in the Philando Castile shooting, Minneapolis police have another high-profile fatality on their hands.
A 40-year-old woman due to be married next month was shot to death by police Saturday night after she called 911 to report a noise in the alley near her house. In a release, the department said that the responding officers' body cameras were not turned on and that the shooting is under investigation.
The Minneapolis Star Tribune quotes three sources who say that Justine Damond came out of the house in her pajamas when a police car arrived about 11:30pm Saturday and approached the driver's side. She was speaking to the driver when the officer in the passenger seat opened fire and shot her through the door, per the story. It's unclear whether it was accidental.
