Former Minneapolis police officer Mohamed Noor leaves the Hennepin County Government Center after the first day of trial in Minneapolis on Monday, April 1, 2019.

Prosecutors in the murder trial of Mohamed Noor assailed a Minneapolis police sergeant for what they called investigative and procedural missteps, along with inconsistencies in testimony after Justine Ruszczyk Damond's fatal shooting.

Hennepin County attorneys continued to craft a picture of police secrecy surrounding Damond's death with their questioning of Sgt. Shannon Barnette, whom they pinned as the source of a key investigative detail that hasn't been substantiated by any of the other 27 witnesses who have testified to date - reports of a slap on the squad vehicle before the shooting.
