“Following the fatal police shooting of an unarmed Australian woman in Minnesota, the story of her death led news sites back home, where friends demanded a federal investigation, and relatives were left searching for answers.
“Tears, confusion after ‘peaceful’ Australian woman killed by US police,” the link to an Australian Broadcasting Corp.story read.
“Sydney woman shot dead in US made tough decision after declaration of love,” read the headline leading the Sydney Morning Herald site.
“Aussie shot ‘multiple times’ after 911 call,” read the headline atop news.com.au.
Justine Damond (nee Justine Ruszczyk) moved from Sydney to Minneapolis several years ago and was planning to marry her fiance, Don Damond, in the coming weeks. But the 40-year-old bride-to-be, who had already taken her fiance’s last name, was fatally shot Saturday night after she reportedly called 911 about a possible assault in the alley behind her home on the city’s southwest side.
After police arrived, an officer opened fire, fatally striking Damond, authorities in Minnesota said.”
