Bodycam recordings have captured the moment when an American agent was told to shut up & # 39; after he shot down the unarmed Australian Justine Ruszczyk Damond.
Mrs. Damond was shot dead outside her home, she shared in July 2017 with her American fiancé, Don and his son in Minneapolis, after she had called 911 earlier that evening to report a possible rape.
In the alarming clip, Mohamed Noor, the officer who shot Mrs. Damond when she approached the police car, seems soaked and visibly anxious while a colleague was heard who said to keep his mouth shut.
The bodycam images, which were presented to the court and were released on Thursday, see Noor in need, while another agent offers him some advice.
& # 39; Are you okay? Yes. Just stay with yourself, keep your mouth shut, & # 39; tells an unknown agent Noor in the clip.
An inaudible sound is heard before the voice continues.
& # 39; Must say something to someone. Okay, & # 39; they say.
They then tell Noor to jump into the vehicle & # 39; and & # 39; to sit with Ringer & # 39; before they say they & # 39; are leaving & # 39 ;.
Different to be overwhelmed, Noor nods and says & # 39; good & # 39; before climbing the squad car to sit with another officer.
In another clip, Harrity tells officers that he had pulled his gun but did not fire, while Noor did.

Mrs. Damond had called the police to her house on July 15, 2017, on the assumption that a woman would be raped outside her house. She was shot after approaching the police car and the agents inside & # 39; shocked & # 39; (Pictured is Noor's partner, Matthew Harrity, who performs CPR on Mrs. Damond after the shooting as Noor walks nearby)
Noor (shown in his mugshot) was found guilty of third-degree murder and second-degree homicide last month, but was acquitted of the highest charge, second-degree murder
& # 39; We are shocked & he said to them.

A jury found that Noor was guilty of murder and second-degree homicide last month after a three-week trial in Minneapolis.
The officer appeals to the indictment, his lawyers claiming that Noor is not with a & # 39; corrupt heart & # 39; acted and instead tried & # 39; tried to defend his partner and himself & # 39 ;.
& # 39; The evidence during the trial could not support that Mr. Noor acted with a corrupt heart & # 39 ;, Noor's lawyers wrote in the submission.
& # 39; When Officer Noor fired that evening, he did not act with a corrupt spirit that is bursting with deliberate passion to cause harm. & # 39;
& # 39; Mr. Noor responded in the middle of the night to a dark alley, a thump on the squadron, a voice, a body that appeared on the driver's side window, the startled announcement of fear by agent Harrity when he went to his firearm and his observation that the person in the window raised their right arm, & # 39; the lawyers wrote.

& # 39; Mr. Noor's actions to defend his partner and himself, in the context of that night, are not evidence of the corrupt spirit that the Minnesota courts had in mind for the past hundred years. & # 39;
Damond, 40, formerly from Sydney's northern beaches, was not home in Minneapolis until midnight on July 15, 2017 when she heard the screams of a woman.
She called 911 and when Norwegian police car arrived in the alley at the back of her house, she approached the vehicle.
Noor and Harrity testified that Mrs. Damond was startling them, they feared ambush, and Noor said he had made the decision in a split second to beat his partner and shoot out of Mrs. Damond's car window.
Mrs. Damond, dressed in a pink T-shirt, pajama pants and bare feet, was shot in the belly and died shortly thereafter.
Noor, 33, a Somali immigrant who was an officer only 21 months prior to the shooting, is facing a 12 1/2 year prison sentence if convicted on June 7.
The van Damond family filed a civil suit against the city of Minneapolis and received a record amount of $ 20 million ($ A29 million).
Noor, who was fired from the police last year after being charged last year, is in custody for his conviction.
