Fmr. MPD Officer Mohamed Noor Sentenced To 12.5 Years In Prison For Shooting, Killing Justine Ruszczyk Damond

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) Former Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor will spend 12 and a half years in prison for the shooting death of Justine Ruszczyk Damond.

On Friday morning, the judge brought down the sentence for Noors charges of third-degree murder and manslaughter in connection to the July 2017 death of Ruszczyk Damond.

The sentence came down after a statement from Noor.

Ive thought and prayed about this for two years, since the time I took the life of Justine Ruszczyk, he said. Ive also been thinking about all the other lives that have been changed, and continue to be changed after this event. None of the families will ever be the same again.

Noor said he took great pride in being a police officer and said he hoped to make lives better.

Taking a life so tragically goes against all of that. Ive lived with this and will continue to live with this. It is my burden. I wish I could relieve that burden others feel of the lost Ive caused, Noor said. I will think of Miss Ruszczyk and her family forever.

The moment I pulled the trigger, I felt fear. The moment I walked around and saw Miss Ruszczyk dying on the ground, I felt horror, Noor said. I knew in that instant that I was wrong.

Noor closed his statement by saying, I have to accept that I caused this and will live with this for the rest of my life.
