Terrence Williams‏: "Black Lives Matter Where Y'all at?"

Australian bride-to-be who was fatally shot by a police officer after reporting a possible assault in Minneapolis called 911 twice to report her concerns and request help, according to transcripts of the calls police released on Wednesday.



NBC Reports:

 The fatal shooting of Justine Ruszczyk, 40, who had already taken her fiancé's last name, Damond, has prompted relatives and Australia's prime minister to demand answers to how she ended up dead at the hands of police. And her family members said Thursday that they were "struggling to understand how and why this could happen."

 Damond first called 911 just after 11:27 p.m. local time Saturday (12:27 a.m. Sunday ET) to report "I can hear someone out the back and I, I'm not sure if she's having sex or being raped," and adding, "I think she just yelled out 'help'" but that it was hard to hear, according to the transcripts.

 "It's difficult. The sound has been going on for a while, but I think, I don't think she's enjoying it. I think it's, I don't know," Damond told the operator, according to the transcript.

 "It sounds like sex noises, but it's been going on for a while and I think she tried to say help and it sounds distressed," she said.

 The dispatcher told Damond that an officer was on the way. Damond called back shortly after 11:35 p.m. to ask where officers were. Asked whether there was an emergency, Damond told the operator: "Hi, I just reported one, but no one's here and was wondering if they got the address wrong."
