MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The fiance of Justine Damond, an Australian woman shot and killed by a Minneapolis police officer, told more than 200 mourners "it felt like a privilege to love Justine."

Don Damond spoke Friday night at the memorial at a stage at Lake Harriet in southwest Minneapolis.

They were scheduled to be married next week.

He shared with the crowd some of the optimism expressed in three or four pages of words she would free-write every morning.

He said, he had "immense gratitude for being the one she chose."
