The ex-Minneapolis police officer who fatally shot a woman while responding to her 911 call will be released from prison Monday.

Mohamed Noor, 36, gunned down Justine Ruszczyk Damond on July 15, 2017, after Damond called 911 to report a possible sexual assault in the alley behind her southwest Minneapolis home.

Initially convicted of third-degree murder and sentenced to 12 years in prison, Noor’s sentence was dropped to four years and nine months for manslaughter after the Minnesota Supreme Court tossed the murder charge in September 2021.

Noor will be released early and spend the next 1½ years on parole.
