Officer Mohamed Noor, who was charged with murder and manslaughter in the death of 40-year-old Justine Ruszczyk Damond, "clearly...violated the rules and deserves to be charged," Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman said during a news conference. Noor turned himself in after a warrant was issued for his arrest in connection with the case, his attorney confirmed.
