A police officer in Minnesota who mistakenly shot and killed an Australian woman in July 2017 has been charged with third-degree murder. According to records from the Hennepin County Jail, Mohamed Noor, who is now behind bars, has also been charged with second-degree manslaughter in connection with the death of Justine Ruszczyk Damond. Noor has been on paid administrative leave since the shooting, but his fate was left to prosecutors rather than a grand jury after several high-profile police shootings in the area. The US grand jury process has also been heavily criticized because it rarely results in police officers being charged with crimes.
