Cops are "easily startled," warn fake signs popping up around Minneapolis following the fatal shooting of an Australian woman by a Minneapolis police officer.

The Star Tribune reports one sign was spotted in Minneapolis and another in St. Paul over the weekend.

The official-looking orange metal signs read: "WARNING: TWIN CITIES POLICE EASILY STARTLED." The signs have a picture of an officer with a gun in each raised hand, shooting in both directions.

Justine Damond was unarmed when she was killed behind her home on July 15, after she called 911 to report a possible rape.

The officer who shot Damond has declined to be interviewed. The other responding officer says Damond approached the officers' police cruiser shortly after he heard a loud sound.
