September 27, 2018 - By Mildred Donovan

Attorneys of Mohamed Noor, who killed Justine Damond on July 15 of the 2017 year, say he had reasons to shoot. The murder case is in the Minneapolis court again.

There are still an intense argue in the court over the case of Noor, an ex police officer who shot Australian woman. Damond was unarmed, and she called to 911, to report a sexual assault that possibly happened behind her home, in the alley.

Attorneys of Noor say that there is no guilt in actions of Noor, who killed Damond. They maintain on the dismissing charges. Meanwhile, prosecutors argue that there was recklessness of Noor’s actions when he decided to use weapon against Justine, engaged 40-year-old life coach.

The main argument, for now, is whether the case must be proceeding to the trial. There is no probable cause insist attorneys of the former officer. They say that Noor’s action can be explained by the wish to help a person in danger. The same action could be made by any officer in the same situation. They insist that there was no third-degree murder when the action happened because of recklessness. They also claim that there was no negligence, and it can’t be 2nd-degree murder as well.

There were several violations of confidentiality from Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman and undermining the right for the fair trial, according to the Noor’s advocates. They aske for all the charges to throw out.
