Fiance says it was 'a privilege to love Justine

The memorial will show the video of Justine helping ducklings stuck in a drain near her house in Minneapolis - retrieving them barefoot.

Justine moved to Minnesota to be with her fiancé, Don Damond, in 2015.

She was planning to get married next week.

'I can just feel her basically saying "why are you guys being so serious?",' friend Rosie McGowan said.

The life of Justine Damond, 40, will be celebrated Friday night at Lake Harriet Band Shell in southwest Minneapolis.

An Australian flag stood on the stage next to a large colour photo of Damond and pink and white flowers.

But it wasn't known until now that the contacts have continued, or that they have broached matters other than US detainees. Japan's ability to destroy North Korean missiles in its airspace as they are ascending has been called into question.


John Ruszczyk choked back tears as he talked about the pain of the loss of his daughter, Justine Damond.

An image of Justine Damond at the memorial held for the slain Australian at the Lake Harriet Bandshell in Minneapolis.

"Officer Harrity has provided a statement to agents with the BCA about the details of the shooting of Justine Ruszczyk [Damond], but as of this time Officer Noor has not", the search warrant reads.

The search warrant application was filed Thursday.

It's the latest piece in an outgoing attempt to determine the exact series of events on July 15 after Noor, who fired the fatal shot from inside a police squad, declined to interview with the BCA.

Investigators have said Officer Mohamed Noor shot Damond after she called 911 to report a possible sexual assault near her home.

Smartphone manufacturers typically keep open an industry-standard two-year action window for major software upgrades. So today the Chinese company's Head of Product, Oliver Z., has chose to answer a few questions on the matter.


During a visit to Minneapolis, where Ms Damond was shot, Mr Ruszczyk said: "We should be walking down the street smiling and laughing, But now every step on the foot path is very painful".

Lawyers for the killer police officer, Noor, 36, claim he felt he was being ambushed when he pulled the trigger and shot Ms Damond. Noor was in the passenger seat and shot Damond through the open driver-side window. Harrity was interviewed by the agency but Noor declined and, under state law, can not be compelled to be interviewed.

An Australian woman shot and killed by a Minneapolis police officer responding to her 911 call will be remembered at a public memorial at a lake near her home.

Today though the focus is on remembering Justine Damond.

The memorial finished with a walk in silence around Lake Harriet.
