Ex-Minneapolis officer charged in woman’s death leaves prison

MINNEAPOLIS – A former American police officer who shot and killed an Australian woman has been released from prison.

KSTP-TV reports that Mohammed Noor was released Wednesday evening after posting $400,000 bail.

Noor is charged with third degree murder and second-degree murder in the fatal shooting of 40-year-old Justine Ruszczyk Damond in July, after she called 911 to report a possible sexual assault in the alley behind her house.

Noor and his attorney, Thomas Plunkett, left the prison around 9:45 pm

The terms of Noor’s bail include no contact with his ex-partner, Matthew Harrity, who was with him during the 5 July 2017 shooting. He must also surrender his passport and cannot possess guns or ammunition.

His next court date is scheduled for May 8.
