MINNEAPOLIS (KMSP) – The Minneapolis police officer who shot and killed Justine Damond in July has yet to speak about the case, but body camera footage obtained by the Fox 9 Investigators shows Officer Mohamed Noor in action during another incident that is part of a current lawsuit in federal court.
At issue is the power of the police to take away someone’s rights.
The suit resulted after three police officers conducted a health and welfare check, taking a Minneapolis resident to a nearby hospital on a mental health hold.
Did officers arrive at Teresa Graham’s door to rescue her from herself? Or, as her lawsuit claims, did they come to retaliate against her full-throated complaints that the MPD ignores safety concerns?

Police reports describe it as a “welfare check”–a door knock to see if a person is ok.
MPD body cam footage shows what occurred when officers Amanda Sanchez, Mohamed Noor and Sgt. Shannon Barnett came to Graham’s door on May 25.
Graham: “What are you doing at my home?”
Sanchez: “You called us for help or something.”
Graham. “I didn’t call you. I want you to listen…”
The video shows police taking the screen off of the storm door and entering her home. Then, they grab her by the arms.
Graham: “Get off my property now.
Barnette: “Here, come here.”
Graham: “How dare you.”
Noor: “Put the phone down. Put the phone down.”
Graham: “Hello, help.”
“I think what these people did was reprehensible,” Graham said.
She was detained by the officers who forced their way into her home without a warrant.
Among the three was Mohamed Noor, who just seven weeks after this incident shot and killed Justine Damond while responding to a 911 call just a few blocks from
