Body cam footage shows officers attempting to save Justine Damond after she was shot by officer

The body camera footage showing the death of Justine Damond, the woman who was fatally shot by a Minneapolis police officer, also showed officers’ vain attempts to save her life.

The chaotic footage was played in court Thursday and showed the unsuccessful efforts to save the 40-year-old woman, who was shot minutes after calling 911 to report a possible rape near her home. Damond was a dual citizen of the U.S. and Australia who had taken her fiance’s last name ahead of their wedding, which was scheduled to happen a month after her July 2017 death.

Former Minneapolis officer Mohamed Noor stands trial on murder and manslaughter charges. He was fired from the Minneapolis Police Department after being charged in her death.

When the body camera footage was played, Damond’s fiancé Don declined to watch. Others members of her family also left the courtroom, FOX9 reported.

The Australian Associated Press reported Minneapolis Judge Kathryn Quaintance barred the media and public from seeing the body camera footage at first but the restriction was lifted after media organizations argued the decision.

“The footage on these [body-worn cameras] shows the last moments of human life and the struggles of police and medical personnel to save that life,” Quaintance wrote in a memo, according to the Australian Associated Press. “These moments are well outside the personal experience of most people. Most lay people are not well equipped to take in such visceral and shocking material.”

The Minneapolis Star Tribune reported that one officer’s body camera showed Noor and his partner taking turns performing CPR on Damond before firefighters arrived. Another body camera video showed Noor being taken to a supervisor squad. Officer Mark Ringgenberg testified Noor kept asking if Damond was OK.

“I just told [Noor] not to say anything,” Ringgenberg said. “I don’t remember specifics.”

Defense attorneys have said Noor was reacting to a loud noise and feared an ambush. Prosecutors have argued there was no evidence Noor faced a threat that justified the use of deadly force.

The head of the city’s police homicide unit, Lt. Richard Zimmerman, testified Thursday that lighting in the alley was bright enough that he could see the officers clearly when he arrived. Defense attorneys have contended that lighting conditions were poor the night Damond was shot.

A wealthy Minnesota businessman, who was once part-owner of the Minnesota Vikings, was found dead along with his wife at a lakeside mansion Wednesday, a close friend and the couple’s children said.

The two bodies discovered in a bed at the Lake Minnetonka mansion Wednesday were identified as being Irwin Jacobs and his wife Alexandria Jacobs, Dennis Mathisen, a close friend of the businessman, told the Star Tribune. Authorities responded to the residence after having received a call, Orono police said.

The Jacobs’ had been married for nearly 60 years and Alexandria had been “in a wheelchair for the last year or so and had signs of dementia,” Mathisen told the newspaper. Irwin had been “distraught” over her condition, Mathisen said, adding it’s believed Irwin killed his wife and then himself.

The couple’s children also confirmed their deaths in a short statement Thursday.

Irwin, 77, had a minority stake in the Vikings in the 1980s before selling his share. He was once known as “Irv the Liquidator” because of his practice of buying underperforming companies and then selling them at a profit.

He owned multiple properties including Grain Belt beer, J.R. Watkins Co., and Jacobs Trading Co.

‘Historic’ blizzard may drop up to 2 feet of snow across Central US, cause ‘life-threatening’ travel conditions

It may be April but winter’s icy grip remains firm across the central U.S., where a potential blockbuster storm is set to bring an onslaught of heavy snow and blizzard conditions through Friday.

Blizzard warnings are now in effect in 6 states, stretching from Colorado all the way up to Minnesota, according to Fox News Senior Meteorologist Janice Dean.

“This actually could be a historic storm for folks across these areas,” Dean said Wednesday on “FOX & friends.”

“We could see 6 to 12, to 24 inches of snow, winds in excess of 35, even 50 mph,” Dean added. “Travel is going to be impossible in some of these areas.”

‘SIGNIFICANT’ WINTER STORM THREATENS BLIZZARD CONDITIONS ACROSS CENTRAL US

The National Weather Service’s Weather Prediction Center said the storm system will move over the Rockies and into the Northern Plains by Wednesday night, bringing heavy and wet snow to the region.

“A swath of 1 to 2 feet of snow is forecast for the Central/Northern Plains and into Western Minnesota through Thursday evening, with locally higher amounts,” the NWS said.

The highest amount of snow is expected to fall across South Dakota, but the combination of snow and strong winds throughout the region will make traffic “difficult to impossible” as visibility drops to “near zero.”

There is also the potential for sleet and freezing rain with accumulating ice near the border of Iowa and Minnesota, which may lead to power outages and dangerous travel.

The storm could be similar to last month’s “bomb cyclone” — an unusual weather phenomenon in which air pressure plummets at least 24 millibars in 24 hours and a storm strengthens explosively — that created devastating flooding across the Midwest.

While this latest storm may not intensify fast enough to that category, Colorado State Climatologist Russ Schumacher told the Associated Press it “will be near record intensity for April for this area.”

Besides heavy snow, there is the potential for severe thunderstorms in warmer areas across the Midwest, according to Dean.

The storm is also renewing fears of flooding to a part of the country where massive flooding over the past month has caused billions of dollars in damage.

Nebraska is not expecting a repeat of the catastrophic flooding it experienced last month because the ground is no longer frozen and ice has melted from the rivers, though there might be localized flooding across the state, according to weather service meteorologist Van DeWald in Omaha. The biggest threat will remain along the already swollen Missouri River, he said.

“It’s really just going to exacerbate that flooding and prolong it,” he said. “We’re probably looking at that surge hitting those Missouri River areas in Nebraska and Iowa three to five days after the storm.”

In northwest Missouri’s Holt County, where the raging Missouri River ravaged roads and highways, Emergency Management Director Tom Bullock is urging residents to be prepared to get out if another surge of water arrives after this week’s storm.

“We don’t have any protection,” he told the AP. “Our levees are all broke.”

‘Significant’ winter storm threatens blizzard conditions across Central US, impacts up to 200 million Americans

Even though spring may have sprung across much of the country, a major late-season winter storm is threatening to bring blizzard conditions to the Central U.S. — and the storm’s impact could be felt nationwide.

The National Weather Service’s Weather Prediction Center said Tuesday the developing “significant” storm system will first bring snow over the Cascades before spreading over the Northern Rockies into the Upper Midwest by midweek.

“A blizzard my friends, in April, it’s happening across portions of South Dakota up towards Nebraska and then into Wisconsin,” Fox News Senior Meteorologist Janice Dean said on “FOX & friends.” “We could see over a foot of snow and windy conditions and the potential for flooding ahead of this, some ice as well.”

Heavy snow and strong winds are forecast to produce “life-threatening” travel conditions across the region starting Wednesday, according to the WPC. Blizzard conditions are expected as winds intensify late Tuesday into Wednesday.

“The heavy wet snow may also lead to power outages,” the NWS said.

Besides heavy snow, rain will stretch across parts of the central U.S. that are still dealing with river flooding, including Iowa and Illinois. There is also the threat of severe weather for the Mississippi and Ohio River valleys through Thursday.

The intense storm system may affect up to 200 million Americans by the end of the week, according to AccuWeather.

Blizzard warnings stretch from Nebraska to western Minnesota, where up to 2 feet of “very heavy and wet” snow may fall.

“A potentially historic winter storm will bring severe impacts Wednesday night into early Friday, similar to the one last April,” the NWS Twin Cities office said on Twitter.

“This may not be your typical blizzard with dry, powdery snow for the Plains and Upper Midwest,” said AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Alex Sosnowski. “But, this may be more of a plastering effect with heavy, wet snow that is difficult to shovel and plow.”

Heavy snow may also impact the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area, which is also forecast to see rain before the changeover to frozen precipitation.

“If the mix doesn`t reach as far north as the Twin Cities, then perhaps the metro could experience blizzard conditions as well — similar to what happened last year,” the NWS office said.

After impacting the Central U.S., the storm system is forecast to eventually bring rain to the Northeast by the end of the week.
