Former Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor has been found guilty of third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter in the fatal shooting of Justine Ruszczyk Damond.

He was acquitted of second-degree murder.

Noor sat expressionless with his hands clasped in front of him as the verdict was read, while the jurors remained calm, although one hung his head. Noor was immediately handcuffed and taken into custody. Sentencing is scheduled for 9 a.m. June 7.

The article goes on to state the following:

Noor is the first Minnesota police officer in recent memory to be convicted of murder and manslaughter in connection with an on-duty shooting.

Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman said the presumptive sentence for the third-degree murder conviction is 12 1/2 years, and the manslaughter conviction four years. He anticipates the sentences will merge. In a news conference flanked by Damond’s family members, he said that despite “missteps” by Minneapolis police and the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension in the initial investigation, justice was ultimately served.
