Event set to memorialize woman killed by Minneapolis police

The memorial service was attended by hundreds of people, many wearing heart-shaped stickers and an Australian flag was displayed on the stage next to Ms Damond's picture.

Justine Damond, of Sydney, who was fatally shot by police in Minneapolis. I love her. I cherish her. "And I have vast gratitude for being the one she chose".

Damond recounted how his fiancee would get up each morning and free write anything that came to mind, and how she was an inspiration to those around her.

Justine Damond's American fiance Don and their friends and family should have been heading for a wedding in Hawaii.

Mourners were asked to dress in blue which was Ms Damond's favourite colour.

The 40-year-old was fatally shot by Officer Mohamed Noor on July 15 after she called 911 to report a possible sexual assault near her home.

At the memorial a man at the back of the crowd held a sign reading: "NOOR RESIGN NOW".

"We should be walking arm in arm down the street smiling and laughing. I feel crushed by sorrow".

Ruszczyk said his daughter was killed by a bullet, that was sacked by an agent of the state, and he will continue to seek justice.

A judge has approved a search warrant for investigators to examine the smartphones of two Minneapolis police officers in the fatal shooting of an Australian woman last month.

Her family has set up the Justine Damond Social Justice Fund, which will support causes important to her, including those promoting equal treatment for all.

Ms Damond had called 911 to report a woman being raped close to her apartment block shortly before she was shot and killed.

Noor's partner told investigators a noise startled him just before Damond approached their police SUV.

He has refused to be interviewed by investigators and can not be compelled to do so.

Mr Noor was in the passenger seat and shot Ms Damond through the open driver-side window.

Various public figures, including Minneapolis' former and current police chiefs, as well as Mayor Betsy Hodges, have called for Noor to make a statement to the agency tasked with investigating officer-involved shootings, through the Fifth Amendment prevents anyone from compelling such testimony. The memorial will end with a silent walk around Lake Harriet.
