MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Testimony continues Monday into a second week in the trial of former Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor.
He’s charged with murder and manslaughter in the shooting death of Justine Ruszczyk Damond. Noor shot her after she had called 911 to report a possible assault in the alley behind her home.
On the witness stand Monday morning, Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo testified about how much info he was given on the scene and who told him what that day. He said Lt. Dan May did not say anything to him about an ambush.
He said he was told that the shots were fired from inside the squad car, but he was not told about a slap on the car, Arradondo says he heard about that days later.
Most of his testimony centered around body cameras. Arradondo testified that both Officer Matthew Harrity and Noor should have turned on their body cameras when responding to the call for help.
He was also asked if he read the grand jury testimony from Officer Harrity, Noor’s partner. Arradondo said he did not read that testimony.
Officer Jindra was expected to take the stand next. They are also scheduled to show his body camera video which the judge warned would be graphic and tough to watch.
