Australian bride-to-be killed by Minneapolis police: What we know

Justine Ruszczyk, a 40-year-old woman who had been living in the United States since 2014, was only a few weeks away from her wedding to fiancé Dan Damond when she was killed by police.

An Australian woman shot by Minneapolis police on Saturday had called 911 to report a disturbance near her home.

"We are so sad to report the tragic shooting of Justine Damond", the community's post said.

The details of how Noor came to fatally shoot Damond while responding to her 911 call remain unclear.

Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges says she's "heartsick" and "deeply disturbed" by what occurred. The officers' body cameras were not turned on at the time and the squad camera did not record the shooting, according to officials.

The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports sources with knowledge of the shooting say Justine Damond, 40, of Sydney, Australia, was in her pajamas and talking to the driver of the patrol auto when the officer in the passenger seat drew his weapon and shot Damond through the door of the vehicle.

Sources told the StarTribune that Damond was wearing pajamas and speaking to officers by the driver's side door of the squad vehicle when one of the officers shot Damond through the door. The BCA is seeking any civilian video of the incident and said the officers have been placed on administrative leave.

"This should not have happened. that could've been me, that could've been you, that could've been you, that could've been any of us", she added. "I call on the BCA to share as much information with all of us as quickly as they can". Both officers had their body cameras turned off, authorities said.

She was engaged to be married next month to an American man.

Her family released a statement saying they are going through a hard time and they are still trying to come to terms with the tragic event in their lives. US and Australian media gave her age as 40.

The son of Damond's fiancé addressed the shooting in a live Facebook video Sunday afternoon.

Ms Damond's personal website says she trained as a veterinarian and practised yoga and meditation for 17 years.

Sterlace talked to her father after it happened and said her family is just heartbroken. Sources close to the investigation told ABC News' Minneapolis affiliate KSTP, Damond was shot two to three times.

"I mean ask anybody here, they're shocked", said a student of Damond's, Corey Birkholz, who was amongst the 200 who gathered at a vigil to commemorate their teacher.

The arrival of Nolito adds to those of Luis Muriel, Ever Banega, Guido Pizarro and Sebastien Corchia. It is thought that the deal to take Nolito back to Spain is worth around €9 (£7.9m).
