The father of an Australian woman who was shot dead by a US cop has unleashed on the officer after a sunrise memorial on the second anniversary of her death.

Justine Ruszczyk was murdered by Mohamed Noor after she called 911 to report a possible sexual assault near her home she shared with her American fiancé Don Damond in 2017.

He was jailed in June for 12-and-a-half years after he claimed he feared for his life when he spotted Ms Ruszczyk approach the police vehicle.

John, her father, said at the memorial at Freshwater Beach, in Sydney, he has been left 'angry' the officer pulled the trigger. 

'I am angry for him pulling the Goddamn trigger,' he said, according to the Manly Daily.   

'He testified that he saw her blonde hair and he saw the T-shirt and he still pulled the trigger.'

The Minneapolis officer had pleaded not guilty to murder and manslaughter, claiming he was attempting to defend his partner Matthew Harrity.       

The 33-year-old testified he arrived to the home and heard a long bang on the squad car, which scared the two officers. 

He claimed he saw a woman at Harrity's window with her arm raised and he fired his weapon to defend him as he couldn't get his gun out of his holster. 

He said they didn't know until when Noor testified he'd seen Justine, as he had reserved his right to remain silent. Justine pictured with her fiancé Don Damond and his son
