The Minnesota police officer, Mohamed Noor, who shot Justine Dammond in the abdomen and killed her after she called 911, was already under investigation by his precinct for “violently forcing” a woman into the hospital.
Noor reportedly had three serious complaints against him, after only two years of being on the force.
Check it out (per Daily Mail):
Both officer’s bodycams were off and the squad car camera not recording, but an audio exchange between dispatch and the officers involved captures the chilling moments directly after she was killed at around 11.30pm on Saturday.
One officer can be heard saying he sees a ‘female screaming behind a building’ and ‘one down’ from the same location before saying they are performing CPR after ‘shots fired’.
Of the three complaints made against him, one is apparently a full-fledged lawsuit and another is “not to be made public.”
The lawsuit stems from a police call on May 25, 2017, when Noor and two other officers took a woman to hospital and she claimed that they carried out false imprisonment, assault and battery.
According to the ongoing lawsuit, the woman claimed that Noor ‘grabbed her right wrist and upper arm’ when moving her, leaving her ‘immobilised’.
The woman, a retired social worker from Minneapolis, alleged that she had called 911 to ‘report an unknown young male who was sitting on her retaining wall behind her house smoking marijuana.’
Officers followed up on her complaint but returned to her home at 8pm to carry out a welfare check after ‘one or more relatives’ allegedly complained to police that she had ‘some sort of mental health problem’.
The woman alleged that she told the officers to leave but they forced a way into her home through a screen door and told her she was going to hospital for a ‘mental health crisis.’
‘Defendant Officer Noor grabbed Plaintiff’s phone from her hand and then grabbed her right wrist and upper arm, thereby immobilizing her,’ the complaint alleged.
She was eventually released from hospital one and a half hours later after a physician ordered that she was discharged, according to the court documents.
