Warrant: Drug buys recorded weeks before Black man shot dead

Protesters on Saturday calling for release of the body cam footage

As described by the families lawyers Benjamin Crump and Chantel Cherry-Lassiter at a press conference on Monday, authorities only let them view a 20-second portion of footage showing deputies opening fire at Brown, whom they claim kept his hands on the steering wheel during the interaction.

Brown then backed out of the driveway as the officers continued firing and drove away, hitting a tree.

An eyewitness account and emergency scanner traffic had previously indicated Brown was shot in the back as he tried to drive away. "He wasn't reaching for anything, he wasn't touching anything, he wasn't throwing anything around", she said.

"As soon as they started going into details, I started crying", she said.

The family's lawyers also criticized local authorities for only showing 20 seconds of the video and only showing them footage from a single body camera.

"If we don't have transparency we can never get to accountability", said Ben Crump, a civil rights lawyer and attorney for the Brown family.

Earlier Monday, a search warrant was released saying deputies obtained the warrant that brought them there after investigators recorded him selling small amounts of cocaine and methamphetamine to an informant.

The city, the county seat of Pasquotank County, had declared a state of emergency before the video was released.

Also on Friday, the province announced that pregnant people of any age in Ontario are now eligible to receive a COVID-19 vaccine. At Fort Meade, 800 doses of Moderna's COVID-19 vaccine were improperly handled, according to Pentagon officials.

"The 42-year-old was shot and killed by deputies last Wednesday during the execution of a search warrant".

"I've never known him to resist any officer or anybody".

Calls have been growing to release the body camera footage. WAVY and other media organizations have petitioned the court to order the release of the footage, as well as the Elizabeth City City Council. If he gets that confirmation, the office would file for the judge to release the footage, Wooten said.

According to a news release, all law enforcement officers, emergency services personnel, and city employees are subject to Elizabeth City's control and must comply with the City of Elizabeth City's Emergency Operation Plan for public safety.

Authorities in North Carolina are bracing for possible protests and unrest over the fatal shooting of Andrew Brown Jr., by sheriff's deputies last week.

Danielle McCalla, who grew up in Elizabeth City before recently moving to Virginia, joined demonstrators who came to watch the news conference by the family attorneys.

The mayor said she directs "all departments and agencies of Elizabeth city to take whatever steps necessary to protect life and property, public infrastructure and provide such emergency assistance deemed necessary to preserve public safety". McCalla, 30, said she met Brown and had several conversations with him, making her sad about what's happening in her hometown and about police shootings elsewhere. "It's a bigger monster than we think it is".
