Community Gathering To Remember, Honor Justine Damond

Mourners wearing heart-shaped stickers have gathered at a lake-front stage in the U.S. city of Minneapolis to remember Australian woman Justine Damond, who was shot dead by a police officer last month.

People attending are encouraged to wear blue, one of Justine's favorite colors.

The sound of two didgeridoos being played next to the Australian flag highlighted Ruszczyk's heritage. A memorial service is set for 7 p.m., followed by a silent walk around Lake Harriet.

Her fiance, Don Damond, and her father, John Ruszczyk, were among those scheduled to speak at the public memorial.

Ruszczyk, 40, called 911 late July 15 to report a possible sexual assault in the alley near her home.

The single bullet struck in her in the abdomen at the drivers window.

Noor's partner, Officer Matthew Harrity, told investigators a noise startled him just before Damond approached their police SUV.

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 declined to be interviewed by investigators, and his attorney did not clarify when if ever he would give an interview. He has declined to be interviewed by investigators, and can not be compelled to do so.

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension is investigating the shooting. "I don't understand. I should have been on a plane to her wedding but we were flying to her funeral".

"This is our first visit to Minneapolis", he said.

Though she was a veterinary surgeon in her native country, Ruszczyk worked as a spiritual healer, yoga and meditation instructor and life coach in Minnesota.

Today they will gather for a memorial instead at the Lake Harriet Bandshell near her home in Minneapolis.

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

"You have stolen my daughter and ripped her from my arms", he said, referring to the officer who shot Ms Damond.
