Advocates rally for Justine Damond after Noor charged

Officer who fatally shot Justine Damond charged with murder, turns himself in

He is charged with third degree murder "perpetrating eminently unsafe act and evincing depraved mind" and second-degree manslaughter, "culpable negligence creating unreasonable risk".

Officer Mohamed Noor shot Justine Ruszczyk Damond, a 40-year-old life coach on July 15 minutes after she called 911 to report a possible sexual assault in the alley behind her home. "Instead, Officer Noor recklessly and intentionally fired his handgun".

"We remain hopeful that a strong case will be presented by the prosecutor, backed by verified and detailed forensic evidence, and that this will lead to a conviction", the statement released via the family's lawyer Robert Bennett said.

A jail roster said he was held on third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter charges. Noor declined to give a statement in the case. But in this case, Freeman convened a grand jury to investigate, but maintained the decision to charge would be his.

MS enacts tightest abortion restrictions in US
The Jackson Women's Health Organization did not perform abortions past 16 weeks , according to clinic owner Diane Derzis. The only exceptions to the measure are if a fetus or the mother has health problems and their lives are threatened.

Justine Damond, also known as Justine Ruszczyk, from Sydney, is seen in this 2015 photo released by Stephen Govel Photography in NY, on July 17, 2017.

Ms Damond approached the driver's side window and Noor fired his gun across Harrity, striking Damond in the abdomen through that window of the vehicle.

Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman filed murder and manslaughter charges Tuesday against Minneapolis police Officer Mohamed Noor.

"Noor had just typed into the squad car's computer 'Code 4.' That message, which went to the police dispatcher, meant that the officers had completed their investigation, were safe and needed no assistance". Her death sparked a national and global outcry and led to the firing of then-Police Chief JaneƩ Harteau, who was away on vacation at the time. "Finally, when we realized that the evidence clearly confirmed to the statutory definitions of third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter, then, and only then, did we charge officer Noor with these crimes".

Najib's visit to Australia will enhance bilateral relations
Australia, the full ASEAN bloc, as well as China and India are among countries still negotiating that deal. Earlier, Najib and other Asean leaders were formally welcomed by Turnbull to the summit.

Community activists say the decision to charge Noor is bittersweet. Shortly after they cleared the call, Harrity said he heard a thump against the back of the squad, heard a whisper, and caught a glimpse of Damond outside the window, standing too close for him to see her hands. They've been leading a campaign called "Justice for Justine" and gathered near her home Tuesday night.

"I think it shattered the illusion a lot of us had in this neighborhood that these kinds of things can't happen here and we saw that they absolutely can happen here", said Schuman. And it's possible Noor could be acquitted on the murder charge, but still be found guilty of manslaughter. "He reaches across in front of his partner, shoots a gun at an object that he can't see". In a statement, Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo doesn't specifically say Noor was terminated, but he that Noor's "end date" was today. Noor, 32, had trained in business and economics and worked in property management before becoming an officer.

The records also show Noor took multiple training courses, including recent in-service training about active shooter situations during the Super Bowl, which was held in Minneapolis earlier this year.

Xi Jinping begins second term as China's President
