Officer who shot unarmed white homeowner in her own yard is black Somali-American Mohamed Noor

The police officer who shot unarmed, white Australian woman Justine Damond has been identified.

Police sources have named the shooter as Officer Mohamed Noor, according to Kare 11.

The officer started on the force in 2015 and, at the time of the shooting, had two outstanding complaints against him, Kare 11’s Lou Raguse tweeted.

Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges praised Officer Noor in May 2016 in a Facebook post where she called his joining the force a “wonderful sign of building trust and community policing at work.”

Noor shot across his partner, striking and killing Damond, as she spoke to the officer driving the police car, according to sources.

Noor’s partner was described as “stunned” by the shooting.

He is the first Somali officer to work in the 5th Precinct, according to a Minneapolis newsletter.

Authorities have confirmed that no weapon was found at the scene, Kare 11 reported.
