Reports Frederick Melo and Nick Woltman in the Twin Cities Pioneer Press:
Zach Damond, who identified himself in a Facebook video as the son of the woman’s fiance, said she had called police for help after hearing a noise near her house. In the video, which was posted Sunday to the Women’s March Minnesota Facebook page, Damond described the woman who was shot as his 'best friend.'
'My mom is dead because a police officer shot her for reasons I don’t know,' Damond said. 'These cops need to get trained differently. I just know she heard a sound in the alley, so then she called the police, and the cops showed up. … Next thing I know, they take my best friend’s life.'
In an email message on Sunday, Damond said, 'Tell people to call the police and demand answers.'
At a news conference Sunday afternoon, Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges called on the BCA to share the details of the shooting as quickly as possible.
Police will kill for any or no reason.
Police are now working on protecting the killers, while the citizenry demands answers.
