Former Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor walks through the elevator lobby of the Hennepin County Government Center with his legal team in Minneapolis on Friday, April 26, 2019.

"The jury has reached a verdict, so please proceed to the courtroom immediately", the message from the court states. It will be announced in court at 4:30 p.m.

The jury of 10 men and two women took less one day to reach their decision.

Mohamed Noor shot Justine Ruszczyk Damond as she approached his patrol auto to report a possible rape behind her Minneapolis home in 15 July 2017. Damond was shot shortly after she called 911 to report a possible sexual assault behind her home.

The US Open Final: Who Will Make it?
The 34-year-old Swiss won the first two sets 6-4 and 7-5, forcing an injured and struggling Djokovic to retire in the third. If she’s at her best, then she’ll make it to the final and if she performs on the day the title will be hers.

Noor testified that a loud bang on his squad vehicle made him fearful, and he fired when he saw a woman appear who was raising her arm.

Noor feared they were targeted by an ambush. Prosecutors say Noor acted unreasonably and the shooting wasn't justified. Noor and Harrity should have considered whether Damond was the 911 caller, the subject of Damond's 911 call or a woman from a previous 911 call placed earlier in the night by a neighbor, prosecutors have said.

He was convicted of third-degree murder but acquitted of the more serious second-degree intentional murder.
