Her death has been met with shock and anger in the USA and in Australia, where Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull described it as inexplicable.
The emergency calls released by police offer some of the first clues about what may have led police to shoot Ruszczyk.
"I think she just yelled out "help", but it's hard the sound has been going on for a while, but I think, I don't think she's enjoying it".
"Help us, help us hold our unjust system accountable without fanning the flames of anti-Somali fear or Islamophobia", she continued, referring to the heritage of the officer who killed Damond. She told the dispatcher she wasn't sure but thought a woman was in distress.
The 40-year-old Damond was killed Saturday by Officer Mohamed Noor. Harrity has told investigators he heard a loud noise near the squad vehicle just before Ruszczyk approached the driver's side.
That's when Ruszczyk approached Harrity's driver's side window. Immediately afterward, Damond approached the driver's side of the squad auto and Noor, who was in the passenger seat, fired his weapon through the open driver's-side window, striking Damond, the agency said.
"No one's here and (I) was wondering if they got the address wrong", she asked.
Dispatch audio from the officers captured the anxiety as they waited for an ambulance to arrive.
"I don't think he should have been an officer before and I certainly don't think he should be one going forward", he said.
Over Half of People with HIV Taking AIDS Drugs
According to UNAIDS , there were almost 36.7 million people around the world who were living with HIV/AIDS at the end of 2015. The report said most progress has been made in eastern and southern Africa, the region that was hardest hit by the epidemic.
"I hate to say it, that's the society we live in".
Other police shootings around the us - particularly the killings of black men by police officers - led to calls for changes that included everything from bias training for officers to upgraded technology.
"Where is EMS on this?" he says. Brandt Williams from Minnesota Public Radio has the latest.
Michele Bachmann, former Minnesota member of the House of Representatives, spoke sharply on the situation, saying that Noor, a Somali-American, was an "affirmative-action hire by the hijab-wearing mayor of Minneapolis", according to Star Tribune.
When it comes to talking to authorities, defense attorneys and legal experts said police officers have the same Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination as everyone else.
The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, the state agency in charge of investigating police shootings, told AFP it did not intend to release any further information for the time being.
Having the information that is publicly available right now, while recognising there is an open BCA investigation, I believe the actions in question go against who we are as a department, how we train, and the expectations we have for our officers. "I wish that he would make a statement". Neither that officer nor his partner had their body camera running at the time, making it more hard to answer questions about the shooting.
"It's not second nature for officers to put those cameras on yet", she said.
The department is reviewing its policy on when the cameras will be on, Harteau said. "It's taken two to four months from the time of the incident".
In an interview on Australia's Today Show on Wednesday, Turnbull called the death of Justine Damond "a shocking killing".
