The stepson of Justine Ruszczyk, Zach Damond, appeared at a Women’s March Minnesota rally in Fulton on July 16 to speak about his stepmother’s shooting death at the hands of police on July 15.
Late on Saturday, July 15, police were called to a “possible assault”. Police said “at one point an officer fired their weapon, fatally striking a woman.”
Friends and colleagues of Justine gathered on Sunday afternoon to pay tribute, speaking about police brutality and raising concerns that police did not activate their bodycams.
