After today's delay, the family of Andrew Brown Jr. saw some police bodycam footage involving the fatal deputy-involved shooting that left Andrew Brown Jr. dead.
Protestors have been outside of the Pasquotank County Sheriff's Office today awaiting the video explanation of why Brown is no longer alive. The release of the video was initially delayed to redact the faces of the officers involved. Unfortunately, the family only saw about 20 seconds of this fatal shooting. Within those 20 seconds, based on what they saw, the family says there were multiple cops on the scene that were shooting at Brown and his hands were visible the entire time. As Brown tried to escape the gunfire and back out of his driveway, police continued to shoot at Brown which caused him to crash into a tree where he died at the scene.
The family has retained several attorney's including a high-profile attorney, Bakari Sellers and he says the County Attorney disrespected him and the family by saying he "was not going to be f--king bullied."
As of now, there is no word on when/if the video will be released to the public, but the community, protestors, even Governor Roy Cooper are all demanding its immediate release for full transparency.
