BCA Looking at Training Records of Officers Involved in Damond Shooting

August 04, 2017 03:54 PM

Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension agents investigating the officer-involved shooting of 40-year-old Justine Damond on July 15 filed a search warrant to obtain training records for officers Mohamed Noor and Matthew Harrity - the two agents who responded to a 911 call from Damond reporting a possible sexual assault.

Noor fatally shot Damond when she approached the patrol squad in which Noor was a passenger. Noor's partner Harrity told investigators a loud sound startled Noor right before Damond approached their vehicle.

The warrant states the Minneapolis Police Department voluntarily shared audio of 911 calls and police traffic, the iPhones and body cameras issued to the two officers and the patrol vehicle involved in the shooting.

But the department said training records contain information protected by the Minnesota Data Privacy Act, and it could not share them voluntarily.

The warrant said "training records provide confirmation that the involved officer (s) completed state mandated training in order to maintain an active peace officer license."

The search warrant was issued on July 31.
