Justine Damond shooting: Justine Damond's fiance describes his last conversation with her minutes before her death

The fiance of Australian woman Justine Damond Ruszczyk, who was shot and killed by a police officer in Minneapolis, has given an emotional TV interview describing his last conversation with the woman he hoped to marry.

The fiancé of the Australian woman fatally shot by a Minneapolis police officer opened up about his final phone conversation with the love of his life, moments before her July 2017 murder.

In an interview with United States television network CBS - his first sit-down TV appearance since Noor's conviction - Don Damond called for policing reform.

"I can not even still get my arms around what's happened", Mr Damond told CBS this Morning in his first interview since the trial.

"I'm coping, but I am. um, one day at a time".

"I broke down crying - it was the acknowledgment of how tragic this is, how wrong this is, how unjust it was", he said.

"It was the acknowledgement ..."

On that night, Ms Damond Ruszczyk called 911 to report what she believed to be a possible sexual assault in a lane near their home.

"My first thought was I want her to be safe, and so I said "I think just stay put and call 911 and then call me back", he said.

"At this point she was already gone".

High-profile shootings of unarmed civilians by police officers has prompted widespread protests in the US.

"I can understand why Black Lives Matter is so angry because you can see the unjustified shooting across this nation".

Mr Damond told CBS News the guilty verdict had given him and the rest of Ms Damond Ruszczyk's family some closure.

"At the very least an apology, but I think beyond that I don't know ... the strained relationship with the county attorney's office and the police department - I don't know that he's fit to serve anymore", Kroll said.

"How can what was learned here be taken to change and address policing in this country?"

"There needs to be changes made so no one has to go through this - so no one ever has to experience what we experienced".
