The stepson of an Australian woman shot dead by USA police is demanding answers after it was revealed the two officers involved had not turned on their body cameras.

Minnesota authorities are investigating a shooting incident in which police officers shot and killed an Australian woman in Minneapolis on Saturday. "The officers" body cameras were not turned on at the time and the squad camera did not capture the incident.

Mr. Omo, who is from IN, said Ms. Damond moved to the United States about three years ago because her fiancé could not move to Australia with his son and work.

"As Mayor of our City, a wife, and a grandmother, I am heartsick and deeply disturbed by what occurred last night", she wrote on Facebook.

Both Hodges and Arradondo said they are not releasing the victim's name and said that information will later come from the BCA.

Minneapolis Mayer Betsy Hodges addressed the "tragic" incident in a news conference on Sunday afternoon, local time.

Beyond that, they ask for patience from the public as investigators continue to probe the incident. "I am in constant communication with our Inspector Kathy Waite to understand as soon as possible what happened and why".

Justine is believed to have lived in America for the past three years. The agency said it would be providing consular assistance to her family.

Zach said Justine called police after she "heard a sound in the alley", which neighbors described as being well-lit at night. "And if anybody can help just call the police and demand answers".

The Sydney native, whose legal name is Justine Ruszczyk, was set to marry a man named Don Damond in August.

"Basically my mom was shot for reasons I don't know", he said.

"How someone teaching meditation and spreading love can be shot dead by police while in her pyjamas is beyond comprehension".

Meanwhile, the death of the woman, identified as Justine Ruszczyk, originally from Sydney, Australia, sparked a wave of indignation among the local community, with residents gathering at the scene of the suspected crime to demand police accountability.
