MINNEAPOLIS (AP) _Minnesota authorities say a woman is dead after an
officer-involved shooting in southern Minneapolis.

The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension released a statement Sunday saying two
Minneapolis officers responded to a 911 call for a potential assault late
Saturday. Exact details haven’t been released, but officials say an officer at
some point fired a gun, killing the woman.

Officials say the officers’ body cameras weren’t turned on and a squad camera
didn’t capture the incident.

Authorities haven’t identified the woman, but friends and relatives say she was a 40-year-old from Australia.

Zach Damond, whose father was engaged to the woman, says she heard noise in an
alley and called police.

Damond’s girlfriend, Hannah McDonell, says the woman worked as a “spiritual
healer.” The bureau didn’t immediately return a telephone message from The
Associated Press.

Mayor Betsy Hodges says she’s “heartsick” and “deeply disturbed” by what
occurred.
