Australian woman shot and killed by police officer in Minneapolis
"How could such a handsome soul", he asked, "with only the desire to help people be shot dead by the police?" he wrote in a Facebook message.
Minnesota Police have released few details of the circumstances of her shooting, except to say that the attending police officers' body cameras were not switched on at the time of the shooting and it was not captured by the officers' squad auto dash camera.
Damond's personal website says she trained as a veterinarian and practised yoga and meditation for 17 years.
According to local Australian news, the woman - identified as Justine Damond from Sydney - was in her pajamas when she approached a responding police vehicle in an alley behind her home in Minneapolis's Fulton neighborhood.
Damond, also known as Justine Ruszczyk, had taken the name of her American fiance Don. "And if anybody can help just call the police and demand answers".
Officials from the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade said they would be sending consular assistance to her family in the wake of the shooting.
Australian woman Justine Ruszczyk was in her pyjamas when she was shot dead by a police officer responding to her 911 call in Minneapolis, US media has reported.
In a press release, the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension said that it was conducting an investigation into the incident and would be performing an autopsy.
"I have a lot of questions about why the body cameras weren't on", Hodges said at the news conference.
Minneapolis police confirmed the incident in a statement.
"We are trying to come to terms with this tragedy and to understand why this has happened", her family said in a statement.
"Justine was all about love, just bringing your biggest heart forward, no matter what you're doing in life", said Drake. "We can't even imagine LHSC with out her", they wrote in a statement on Facebook.
Damond is believed to have been living in the United States for at least the past three years.
Friends and relatives tell the Star Tribune (http://strib.mn/2tZtSB2) the woman was 40 years old and worked as a spiritual healer.
In a Facebook tribute, one woman said she spent many hours speaking with Ms Damond "talking about the world she was so determined to change". "She lived such a full life".
"We have few facts at this point", she said.
Betsy Hodges, the mayor of Minneapolis, said, "I have questions about why the bodycams weren't on".
Hundreds of people gathered at the entrance of an alleyway in southwest Minneapolis to mourn the woman who was shot and killed by police there on Saturday night.
