Former Minneapolis policeman Mohamed Noor was found guilty on Tuesday of the death of Justine Damond, an unarmed woman shot shortly thereafter, shortly after she called 911.
The decision of The Jury, which received the case on Monday, followed three weeks of testimony in the trial of Noor.
Former officer convicted of third degree murder and second-degree manslaughter. However, the jury did not consider him a second-degree murderer. Noor was brought directly from the courtroom to the custody of Hennepin County Sheriff's Dept. His conviction was scheduled for June 7.
The defenders say Noor responds to a loud noise and was afraid of an ambush in the deadly incident. The prosecution argued that there was no evidence that Noor was exposed to a threat that justified the use of lethal force.
At the beginning of the month, body cameras of the encounter were shown during the trial, showing the woman's last moments as well as the police's unsuccessful attempts to save her.
An officer's body camera showed Noor and his partner performing CPR against Damond before the arrival of firefighters, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported. Another camera camera video showed Noor being taken to a supervisor squad.

The officer Mark Ringgenberg confirmed that Noor had failed to come out of order.
"I've just said [Noor] nothing to say," said Ringgenberg. "I do not remember details."
Damon, 40, had called 911 to report a possible rape near her home. Noor and his partner rolled down the alley behind the woman's home and checked the call just before shooting. Noor testified that a loud bang on the patrol car had startled his partner and he saw a woman emerge her arm at his partner's window. He shot to protect his partner's life, he said.
