Don Damond, the husband-to-be, of Aussie woman Justine Damond, who was shot dead in the US, has spoken of his grief and demanded answers.

"The death of Justine is a loss to everyone who knew her," he said.

"She touched so many people with her loving and generous heart.

"She was a teacher to so many in living a life of openness love and kindness."

Justine was killed over the weekend in Minneapolis, and was in her pyjamas at the time.

They're grieving, but the family is also upset about a lack of information from authorities.

"As you know, it was Justine who called 911, reporting what she believed was an active sexual assault occurring nearby," Mr Damond said.

"Sadly her family and I have been provided with almost no addition information from law enforcement, regarding what happened after police arrived."

This is what police have said:


The woman's stepson Zach Damond has earlier taken to Facebook Live, seeking answers and condemning gun violence in the United States.

"My mum is dead because the police officer shot her for reasons I don't know and I demand answers"

Zach says his mother was 'passionate', and his best friend.

"I just know she heard a sound in the alley so then she called the police and the cops showed up and she was a very passionate woman, she probably thought something bad was happening and then next thing I know they take my best friend's life."
