MINNEAPOLIS (FOX 9) - A jury found former Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor guilty of third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter and not guilty of second-degree murder in the 2017 shooting death of Justine Ruszczyk Damond.
Noor was immediately taken into custody. His sentencing is set for Friday, June 7 at 9 a.m.
The jury of 10 men and two women deliberated for 10 hours before reaching a verdict Tuesday afternoon.
The trial began on April 1, but it took more than a week to seat the 12-person jury. Over the course of the next three weeks, the jury heard from more than 61 witnesses. They received the case at 2:15 p.m. Monday afternoon.
