A Search Warrant Says Woman Slapped Back Of Police Car Before Being Killed

Minneapolis, Minnesota – A search warrant implies that Justine Damond approached the back of a police car and “slapped it” moments before she was shot by a police officer.

ABC News reported a search warrant filed by the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension doesn’t specifically state that the woman was Justine Damond, but states, “Upon police arrival, a female ‘slaps’ the back of the patrol squad … After that, it is unknown to BCA agents what exactly happened, but the female became deceased in the alley.”

On July 15, Police Officer Mohamed Noor was in the passenger seat of the police car and shot across his partner who was in the driver’s seat and hit Justine Damond.

Initial reports that Damond had been speaking with officers prior to the shooting were made before any interviews were done with anybody on scene. After investigators interviewed Officer Noor’s partner, information was released that suggest that Damond was shot immediately upon contacting the officers.

A spokesperson from the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension didn’t provide any additional details to Minnesota Public Radio, citing the ongoing investigation.

The latest information suggests that the sequence of events are as follows:

  1. Damond called 911 to report a possible assault in an alley behind her Minneapolis home.
  2. She called about 10 minutes later to check on the status of the police.
  3. Officers arrived on scene and were checking the area.
  4. Damond slapped the back of the patrol car and approached the driver’s door.
  5. Officer Noor shot over his partner, through the driver’s door to hit Damond.

No legal justification has yet been offered by Officer Noor, as he has decided to exercise his right to remain silent rather than cooperate with investigators. Criminal charges appear imminent.

Our editor has previously stated, “I am not aware of any officer-involved shooting which did not result in criminal charges in cases when the officer refused to make a statement. The prosecutors are left with a homicide with no justification given for the shooting.”
