MINNEAPOLIS (AP/NBCNews) - The family of an Australian woman who was shot and killed by police in Minneapolis says they're trying to understand why it happened.

NBC News is reporting the woman's name is Justine Damond. She was described as a spiritual healer who was shot dead by police Saturday after she reportedly called 911 herself — leaving friends and family searching for answers.

The Bureau of Criminal Apprehension released a statement Sunday saying two Minneapolis officers responded to a 911 call for a potential assault late Saturday. Exact details weren't released but officials say an officer at some point fired a gun, killing the woman.

Officials say the officers' body cameras weren't turned on and a squad camera didn't capture the shooting.

Minneapolis Mayor Betsy Hodges says she's "heartsick" and "deeply disturbed" by what occurred.
