Minnesota Jurors Names to Remain Secret after Officer’s Conviction

Judge Kathryn Quaintance cited harassment

A judge is keeping secret the names of jurors who convicted a Minneapolis police officer this week in the shooting of an unarmed woman.

Judge Kathryn Quaintance cited the possibility of unwanted publicity and harassment in an order Thursday.

The jury on Tuesday convicted Mohamed Noor, a two-year veteran, of murder and manslaughter in the 2017 death of Justine Ruszczyk Damond.

She was shot when she approached Noor’s squad car minutes after calling 911 to report a possible rape behind her home.
