Relatives of woman killed by Somali-born cop cast doubt on probe

(Fox News) Relatives of an Australian woman who was fatally shot by a Minnesota police officer in July want a more rigorous probe after a prosecutor ripped investigators over the handling of the case.

Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman last week complained that he doesn’t have enough evidence to charge Officer Mohamed Noor in the killing of the woman, Justine Ruszczyk Damond. Noor shot Damond in the alley behind her home in Minneapolis after she called 911 to report a possible sexual assault, according to The Associated Press.

“We implore Mr. Freeman and the prosecutor’s office to continue to pursue a rigorous investigation and examination of evidence of the events leading up to Justine’s death,” her father, John Ruszczyk, told reporters in Sydney on Thursday. “We will wait patiently while this occurs, but insist that this investigation be done, and done right.”
