One of the two responding officers, Mohamed Noor, fired at her as she approached the squad vehicle he was riding in.

Officer Noor and his partner, Matthew Harrity, were responding to her emergency call about a possible sexual assault in the back alley.

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

Harrity, who was driving, said Noor then fired his weapon from the passenger seat, hitting Damond.

Damond's fiance, Don Damond, released a short statement saying, "The wait continues for Justine's family and me".
