MINNEAPOLIS (AP) – The Minnesota police officer who shot and killed an Australian woman is offering condolences to her family.

Mohamed Noor was identified by his attorney earlier Monday as the Minneapolis officer who fired the shots that killed Justine Damond. Damond’s fiancé says she had called 911 Saturday night to report a possible sexual assault in the alley behind their house.

Soon after, she was shot.

In a statement to WCCO-TV, the Somali-American officer says he came to the U.S. at a young age and appreciates the opportunities he’s gotten. He says he considers being a police officer a calling, and became one to serve and protect the community.

Noor’s attorney hasn’t returned calls from The Associated Press.

Damond’s death is being investigated by Minnesota’s state investigative agency.
