Justine Damond update: Death ruled a homicide

6f2f500af26cdd38837445040c89ff9a.jpegThe US medical examiner who performed the autopsy on Australian bride-to-be Justine Damond has ruled her death a homicide, after a neighbour labelled the fatal police shooting an “execution”.

Her distraught partner Don Damond, 53, wants to know why a police officer felt so threatened by a pyjama clad Ms Damond he shot her dead behind their Minneapolis home.

Ms Damond was hit in the stomach when Minneapolis officer Mohamed Noor fired around across his partner from inside their police car about 11.30pm on Saturday.

“This individual died of a gunshot wound of the abdomen,” the Hennepin County Medical Examiner’s Office said on Monday. “Manner of death is homicide.”
