Former Minneapolis Police Officer Mohamed Noor sits in the pickup truck of his attorney, Thomas Plunkett, after posting bond and leaving the Hennepin County Public Safety Facility in Minneapolis on Wednesday, March 21, 2018. The police officer who was with Noor, charged with murder and manslaughter in the death of an unarmed Australian woman, said both men "got spooked" when she approached their SUV, and that the partner feared for his life. But prosecutors say Noor acted recklessly and was not justified in using deadly force when he shot Justine Ruszczyk Damond last July after she called to report a possible sexual assault behind her home.
