The police officer who shot dead Australian woman Justine Damond Ruszczyk has been found guilty of second-degree manslaughter, guilty of third-degree murder and not guilty of second-degree murder.

The jury found Mr Noor's shooting of Ms Damond was not justified under the circumstances.

According to trial witnesses and prosecutors, Barnette deactivated her body camera multiple times during the night of the shooting, jumped to conclusions about whether Noor and his partner had been startled before Noor shot, and told another officer that Ruszczyk was "probably a drunk or a drug addict" after she was killed.

Noor and his partner drove to Damond's home the night of July 15, 2017, to respond to her report of a possible sexual assault outside her house.

A jury of 10 men and women delivered their verdict on Wednesday morning, bringing to an end a trial that stretched five weeks. Yanez then pulled out his gun and began shooting Castile, as his girlfriend and her 4-year-old daughter sat in the auto.

Noor targeted Damond from the passenger seat of the police cruiser he was in with his partner, Matthew Harrity. Noor testified that he could identify Ruszczyk as a threat, raising an arm standing outside of the driver's side window. He was convicted in the July 2017 death of Justine Ruszczyk Damond, a 40-year-old dual citizen of the USA and Australia.

It's rare for police officers to be convicted, but some Minnesota community members say they saw this coming for Noor because he is Somali American.

Noor's attorneys weren't immediately available for comment.

Jurors have reached a verdict in the trial of a Minnesota police officer in the death of an unarmed woman who was shot minutes after calling 911.

Noor was acquitted of second-degree intentional murder in the case.

Damond worked as a spiritual healer and meditation coach and lived in Minneapolis with her fiancé, who also gave evidence earlier last month.

Harrity spoke of the fears police officers confront daily and the mental agony he suffered in the shooting's aftermath.

Noor's lawyer asked that he be free on bond pending sentencing June 7, but prosecutors opposed that on the grounds of the seriousness of the case. Defense attorneys labeled Noor a hero, saying he was just trying to save his partner's life.

He was found not guilty of second-degree murder. But Hennepin County prosecutors said Noor overreacted and failed to properly assess the situation before firing a gunshot into Ruszczyk's abdomen. And then the overall, that they're charging a police officer. Prosecutors say Noor acted unreasonably and the shooting wasn't justified.

He faces up to 15 years on the third-degree murder conviction and almost five years on the manslaughter conviction, although judges aren't bound by state sentencing guidelines and can impose much lower sentences. He said he hadn't evaluated whether there was a threat by the time Noor fired.

But when they reached the end of the alley, they heard a noise.
