MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Latest on the investigation into a Minneapolis police officer's fatal shooting of Australian woman Justine Damond (all times local):

12:30 p.m.

The fiancé of an Australian woman who was killed by a Minneapolis police officer in July says he wants justice.

Don Damond released a statement Tuesday, shortly after state investigators announced they have finished investigating the death of Justine Damond and have forwarded the case to prosecutors for possible charges.

Officer Mohamed Noor shot and killed the 40-year-old woman July 15 after she called 911 to report a possible sexual assault.

Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman has said he expects to decide on charges before the end of the year.

Justine Damond was engaged to be married and had already started using her fiance's last name. Don Damond said Tuesday that "the wait continues for Justine's family and me." He says the family hopes that Freeman will "act swiftly to review the findings and determine charges."

The case of a Minneapolis police officer who shot and killed an Australian woman in July has been handed to prosecutors for possible charges.

The Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension said Tuesday that they have finished their investigation into Officer Mohamed Noor and have turned the case over to prosecutors for review.

Noor fatally shot 40-year-old Justine Damond on July 15 after she called to 911 to report a possible sexual assault.

Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman has said he expects to decide on charges before the end of the year.

During a meeting with Minneapolis residents Sunday, Freeman said the shooting of Damond "didn't have to happen."

Noor's partner, Officer Matthew Harrity, has told investigators that Harrity was startled by a loud noise shortly before Damond appeared at the window of the police cruiser and Noor fired.
