Minneapolis Police Chief Janeé Harteau said on Thursday that Justine Damond's death was "unnecessary" and that it went against her department's training.

The state agency probing the killing of Justine Damond, also known by her maiden name Justine Ruszczyk, interviewed one of the two officers who responded to her emergency call on Saturday night in Minneapolis. The city had required all uniformed officers to wear cameras on their bodies by previous year, amid outrage over the 2015 fatal shooting of Jamar Clark, an unarmed black man. Noor has declined to be interviewed.

The Minneapolis Police Department has placed the two officers on standard administrative leave.

"She obviously was not armed, she was not a threat to anyone, nor could she have reasonably been perceived to be", he told WCCO-TV. "The sound has been going on for a while, but I think, I don't think she's enjoying it", Ruszczyk said.

"It's disinformation ... it doesn't have any basis in fact".

"In our country, historically white women have always had the responsible ear to get justice even when it was unwarranted", he said.

Noor was also sued earlier this year after a May 25 incident in which he and other officers took a woman to the hospital for an apparent mental health crisis. He will have to give a statement as part of his department's internal investigation.

Noor's partner, Matthew Harrity, told investigators that he and Noor heard a loud noise immediately before Damond approached the squad auto. Immediately afterward, Damond approached the driver's side of the squad vehicle and Noor, who was in the passenger seat, fired his weapon through the open driver's-side window, striking Damond, the agency said.

Damond, 40, died at the scene.

He'd also portrayed several "Fraggle Rock" characters and appeared in Henson movies " Labyrinth " and " The Dark Crystal ". There's a frog in a lot of throats across the country as news has circulated that Kermit the Frog is getting a new voice.

"We gather here to grieve together in solidarity with the families, the families of those killed by police", Ashley Harness, a pastor at Lyndale United Church of Christ and a resident of the neighborhood, said during the rally. Like any potential defendant, he cannot be compelled to make incriminating statements that could be using against him in a criminal trial.

Noor has not made any statements to investigators, Harteau said. Officials did not respond Wednesday to requests for further detail. Noor's partner says the shooting happened after the partner heard a loud sound.

The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension did not confirm the KSTP report.

Harrity's attorney, Fred Bruno, told the Star Tribune Wednesday "it's certainly reasonable" for the officers to fear they could be the target of a possible ambush.

Plunkett said he will ask for a coroner's report from an outside lab on Damond. But they said he might have already been in a heightened state of awareness in light of recent ambushes of police.

You shouldn't shoot unarmed people who call the cops, he added.

Harteau has been under growing pressure to speak out about her department's officer involved shooting, with some in community questioning why she wouldn't cut her vacation short and return with answers.

"I have been told by his training officers there was no indication there would be any issues", she said.

Damond had called 911 twice shortly before 11:30 p.m. to report what she believed might be a woman being raped in the alley behind her house in south Minneapolis.
