Prosecutor: Shooting of Justine Damond "Shouldn't have happened"

Posted: Updated:

The prosecutor deciding whether criminal charges are warranted against the Minneapolis police officer who fatally shot an Australian woman after responding to her call says the shooting "shouldn't have happened."

The Star Tribune says Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman met with Minneapolis residents Sunday afternoon, who questioned him about the death of 40-year-old Justine Damond. 

She was fatally shot July 15th by Officer Mohamed Noor, who was one of two officers responding to her 911 call about a possible sexual assault in the alley behind her home.

Freeman told residents Damond's death "didn't have to happen."

Freeman also commented on the high - profile fatal police shooting case of Philando Castile, saying the jury was wrong in acquitting the officer how killed him.
