Australia's Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade confirmed that a citizen of the country had been killed, but declined to identify her until her family had been notified, according to a statement obtained by HuffPost Australia.

Investigators are trying to locate a video of the shooting, as officers' body cameras were turned off at the time and cameras in the squad vehicle did not capture the incident, the BCA said. Reports that the police officers' body cameras were turned off is also causing outrage by some people giving feedback about the incident on social media. Investigators are looking into whether other video of the shooting exists, the statement said.
