Reuters reports a former Minneapolis police officer was sentenced to 12-1/2 years in prison on Friday.

Mohamed Noor was accused and convicted in the fatal shooting of an Australian woman nearly two years ago.

Noor was found guilty on April 30th of third-degree murder and second-degree manslaughter.

Before the sentencing, Noor made a tearful apology to Damond’s family and described how the fear that led him to pull the trigger turned to horror upon seeing what he had done.
