Minneapolis police shot an unarmed woman in her pajamas. They haven’t explained why.
It has been several days since a police officer in Minneapolis shot a 40-year-old woman in the alley behind her house.
Since then, we have learned little about what happened. Here’s what we do know: On Saturday night, local police responded to a 911 call about a possible assault in an alley behind the home of Justine Damond, who worked as a yoga and meditation instructor. According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, officers pulled into the alley, and Damond, still in her pajamas, approached the driver’s side door. At some point, the officer in the passenger’s seat shot and killed Damond. That’s it. We haven’t heard the 911 call that prompted police to go to Damond’s house, and we don’t have an explanation for why the officer opened fire. There were, however, no weapons found at the scene.
