An Australian woman has been shot dead by police in the United States, after calling 911 to report a disturbance in a nearby alley.

 

Justine Ruszczyk was at home on Saturday night when she called police to report a noise and a possible assault in a nearby alley in South Minneapolis, Minnesota.

 

When police arrived at her home at around 11.30pm, 'one officer fired their weapon, fatally striking the woman' as she reportedly stood in her driveway.

 

Ms Ruszczyk, 40, was originally from Sydney but had been living in the US for three years and was due to marry American businessman Don Damond, 50, next month.

Shattered friends said the woman and her fiance were due to marry next month, with Ms Ruszczyk already using her husband's surname Damond on her website.

 

At the time of the shooting Mr Damond, the vice president of Little Six Casino was away on business.

 

His soon-to-be stepson Zach was reportedly also not at the home on Saturday night, returning home on Sunday to discover the crime scene.

 

And just hours after the shooting he spoke to a local activist group, slamming police over the death.

 

'Basically my mum's dead because a police officer shot her for reasons I don't know,' Zach Damond said.

'I demand answers. If anybody can help, just call police and demand answers. I'm so done with all this violence. It's so much bulls**t. America sucks.

 

'She was a very passionate woman, she thought something bad was happening - and next thing you know they take my best friend's life.'

 

In a statement, the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension said an investigation was in its early stages, but that police did not have their body cameras on during the incident.

Cops, on the whole, are sick people. The lot of them need to be replaced, reeducated, retrained and/or beaten with bamboo sticks

Three sources with knowledge of the incident said Sunday that two officers in one squad car, responding to the 911 call, pulled into the alley. Damond, in her pajamas, went to the driver’s side door and was talking to the driver. The officer in the passenger seat pulled his gun and shot Damond through the driver’s side door, sources said. No weapon was found at the scene.

 

:biblio:

What is the reason? There was literally no reason at all from what the police are saying :biblio:

the **** :biblio: I feel like there's more to the story, because it's so random that a police officer would shoot her on her own driveway. But there's no doubt in my mind her death was totally unnecessary
