BCA finishes Damond investigation, hands it over to county attorney

"We want to see justice for Justine, and hope that the Hennepin County Attorney will act swiftly to review the findings and determine charges", he said.

Justine Damond was engaged to be married and had already started using her fiance's last name.

She was fatally shot July 15 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.

A preliminary BCA report said Noor was in the passenger seat of the squad while his partner, officer Matthew Harrity, was driving.

Her death sparked worldwide outrage and led to the resignation of Minneapolis Police Chief Janee Harteau. Freeman has said he expects to decide on charges before the end of the year. Noor previously expressed condolences to the Damond family in a statement, but declined to discuss the shooting.

The most likely charges may be second-degree manslaughter, which carries a sentence of up to 10 years, Bennett said.

And the awful news is that the Patriots looked worse and got beat down at home last week in their 27-42 loss to the K.C. That spoiled the return of running back Peterson, who signed with the Saints as a free agent in the off season.

At the time of the death, Officer Noor's partner, Officer Harrity, told Minnesota's Bureau of Criminal Apprehension that Noor shot Damond through their squad auto door as she walked down her driveway to greet them.

Sunrise Minneapolis Police Chief Janee Harteau resigned in the fallout over Justine's death.

Noor has been on paid leave since the shooting.

"Several senior prosecutors will now carefully review the case file to determine what, if any, charges might be brought", he said. Tuesday's announcement noted that Freeman could request additional investigation by the BCA during its review, and stated that the office had no other public statements to make on the case at this time.
