Despite having multiple complaints against him in two years, Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor is refusing to cooperate with investigators for the shooting of an Australian woman this past weekend.
According to the Minnesota Department of Public Safety, Officer Noor fatally shot 40-year-old Justine Damond as she stood in the alley behind her home. She initially called police to report a disturbance behind her house.
The incident is causing public outcry, but Noor told the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension that he will not provide an interview about the incident. His body cam was also turned off during the shooting at Damond’s residence.
The BCA is conducting the investigation into the shooting at the request of the MPD, and has released the following statement:
“Officer Noor has declined to be interviewed by BCA agents at this time. Officer Noor’s attorney did not provide clarification on when, if ever, an interview would be possible.”
Noor is currently on paid administrative leave during the investigation.
