Officer who shot Justine Damond is in custody

Mohamed Noor is being held in a Hennepin County facility.

The Minneapolis police officer who shot dead Justine Damond last summer is currently being held in custody.

Mohamed Noor appeared on the Hennepin County Jail roster Tuesday morning.

No details have been given on charges yet, but WCCO is reporting he has been charged with 3rd degree murder and 2nd degree manslaughter.

The Star Tribune reports that the 33 year old has turned himself in on charges relating to Damond's death.

The Hennepin County Attorney's Office will hold an afternoon press conference, where it will reveal more details.

The investigation into Damond's death in southwest Minneapolis has been overseen by the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension.

The Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman has expressed frustration at the difficulty he was have bringing any charges – noting that Noor had chosen not to be interviewed.

In January, he convened a grand jury so he could subpoena officers to testify under oath in the investigation.
