Testimony continued Thursday in the murder trial of former Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor, who is charged with the fatal shooting of Justine Ruszczyk Damond. Much of Thursday's court action focused on the response by police. Here are the day's noteworthy developments:
• The Minneapolis Police Department head of homicide, Lt. Richard Zimmerman, said he was baffled when he arrived to the scene and didn’t see a weapon near Justine Ruszczyk Damond’s body.
• He testified that Sgt. Shannon Barnette, Mohamed Noor’s supervisor, told him that Damond was “probably a drunk or a drug addict.” Tests revealed there were no drugs or alcohol in Damond’s system.
• Jurors saw body camera videos recorded by Minneapolis police officers Scott Aikins and his partner, Jesse Lopez. Throughout Aikins’ video, officers were still unclear on what had happened.
• Three officers testified that there was enough light at the scene to see people and objects.
