Media: Minneapolis police officer fatally shoots bride-to-be under mysterious
Sensationalism. Did the officer shoot his own fiancee? No. She happened to be engaged, which gave WaPo the opportunity for this sensationalist headline. She was also the 911 caller, which is much more relevant.
Near the bottom, they quote anonymous sources from another newspaper who indicates the passenger officer shot through the driver’s door while the woman was standing there.
Three people “with knowledge of the incident” told the Star Tribune that the responding officers pulled into the alley behind Damond’s home. The woman, wearing pajamas, approached the driver’s side door and was talking to the driver, reported the Star Tribune. The officer in the passenger seat shot Damond through the driver’s side door, the three people told the newspaper.
It was probably accidental. Back in the 1990s there was a suspected bookie killed by county police here. The police were sneaking up on him behind his townhouse, and one of them who had his gun drawn tightened his grip a little too much, shooting the suspect before he even knew police were present.7wo7rees, Pastiche, bbgrunt and 2 othersJohnny Rash, Enthusiast like thisCubs, Google+, Weird Al, BMW
