Woman calls 911, gets killed by Minneapolis police, source says
(CNN) A woman shot and killed by Minneapolis police had called 911 to report a possible crime near her home, a source who knew her said Justine Ruszczyk called 911 on Saturday night because she thought a sexual assault might be taking place in a back alley near her home, the source said.
But after Minneapolis police arrived, an officer shot and killed Ruszczyk. Police still haven't explain how, or why. 'Working to learn more' Justine Ruszczyk, left, and her fiancé were set to marry next month. The shooting happened as two Minneapolis police officers responded to a 911 call reporting a possible assault shortly before 11 p.m., Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges said. The officers were wearing body cameras, but they were not turned on during the incident, the mayor said. The Minnesota Department of Public Safety is now handling the case. The DPS' Bureau of Criminal Apprehension said authorities are in the initial stages of investigation and are "working to learn more about the events that transpired."
