Australian Prime Minister Wants Answers In Killing
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull is joining those demanding answers in the fatal shooting of an Australian woman by police in Minneapolis.
In an interview on Australia's Today Show on Wednesday, Turnbull called the death of Justine Damond "a shocking killing."
Damond was shot by a police officer Saturday night after she called 911 to report what she believed was an active sexual assault. The shooting is being investigated by state authorities, who have yet to officially identify officers or give a narrative of what happened.
Turnbull says he's demanding answers on behalf of Damond's family. He says something "clearly went tragically wrong."
