Noor shot 40-year-old Justine Damond after she called 911 to report hearing a possible sexual assault behind her home. The warrant shows that Minneapolis police command staff voluntarily gave investigators body camera videos, the officers’ iPhones, the officers’ patrol vehicle and audio of 911 calls and police radio traffic.
