All Minneapolis police officers have worn body cameras since the end of 2016, according to the city, a policy decision that was announced in July 2016, same month a black motorist named Philando Castile was fatally shot by a police officer in the Twin Cities area. "Did the police officers turn the cameras off?" is a yes/no question, the answer to which could give the mayor and public a measure of comfort, although that's not the primary mission of the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, of course.

Damond's personal website says she trained as a veterinarian and practised yoga and meditation for 17 years.

She called police after hearing a disturbance in the alley and went out to investigate when she was shot, according to media reports.

"I'm so done with all this violence, it's so much bulls-t".

As Mayor of our City, a wife, and a grandmother, I am heartsick and deeply disturbed by what occurred last night.

Friends and community members say they want to know the names of the two officers involved in the shooting, and also want transparency as the investigation continues. The cops who responded to her call were wearing body camera but didn't turn them on.

Around 11:30 p.m. Saturday, two Minneapolis police officers responded to a 911 call of a possible assault.

Both Hodges and Arradondo said they are not releasing the victim's name and said that information will later come from the BCA.

"I only hope this evolves into something that can make a positive impact for the world", he said.

The department said the Hennepin County Medical Examiner's Office would conduct an autopsy to determine the woman's identity and cause of death.

"She thought there was something bad that was happening and next thing I know, they take my best friend's life".

Locals held a vigil for Damond at the scene of the shooting at 6pm Sunday local time (9am AEST), with hundreds lining the footpaths and writing messages of love and support on the pavement in chalk.

"Basically, my mom's dead because a police officer shot her for reasons I don't know", the newspaper quoted him as saying.

Friends and neighbors described her as a "loving person" whose "whole mission in life was to help people with any problem", KARE reported.

Australia's Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade confirmed that a citizen of the country had been killed, but declined to identify her until her family had been notified, according to a statement obtained by HuffPost Australia.
