The officers are heard communicating with their dispatcher over the police radio, including calling for backup and their attempts to perform CPR on Sydney-raised Damond.
“Shots fired ... we have one down,” one of the officers says. Damond, 40, called police after hearing a possible sexual assault taking place in an alley behind her Minneapolis home in what has been described as the safe, middle-class neighbourhood of Fulton.

The police audio begins with the description of a “female screaming behind the building”, believed to be what Damond told the dispatcher in her initial 911 call.
Damond, dressed in her pyjamas, reportedly approached the driver’s side window of the police car when it arrived in the alley and an officer shot across his partner at Damond more than once from the passenger seat.

THIS IS INSANE !!! How could police POSSIBLY think this was someone who needed to be shot at?
The officer(s) involved should be charged with murder. This kind of crap HAS to stop.
Here is some advice to the world:
- Avoid the US at all costs; but
- If you must come here, NEVER call the police.
