Police ‘executed’ Black man in North Carolina shooting, lawyers say

Ben Crump, a lawyer for the family, said there was evidence from at least nine cameras, including police body cam and dash cam videos, but that the victim's lawyers were shown only a 20-second portion from a single body cam video after Pasquotank County Attorney Michael Cox decided against showing more. "The officers were not in no harm of him at all".

Lawyers for the family said the 42-year-old Brown had his hands on the steering wheel of his auto and was complying with police orders when he was gunned down, leaving a trail of shell casings in the driveway of his home in Elizabeth City. WAVY and other media organizations have petitioned the court to order the release of the footage, as well as the Elizabeth City City Council.

"We do not feel that we got transparency".

The day after the incident, Wooten justified withholding the footage by responding that only a judge could authorize its release, and he had asked the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation to confirm that doing so would not undermine their work. Mayor Bettie Parker says law enforcement expects a "period of civil unrest" after the release of the video and the order helps mobilize state and federal resources.

Bakari Sellers, an attorney for Brown's family, previously claimed Cox tried to keep lawyers for Brown's family from viewing the footage.

Additionally, they said the report showed five bullet wounds total that penetrated Brown's body.

'Authentic evidence': Grim discovery in search for missing submarine
The Indian Navy has already deployed a DSRV to support the Indonesian Navy's search-and-rescue mission for the missing submarine. If the submarine was still intact, officials said it would only have enough air to last until around dawn on Saturday.

The shooting unfolded about 8:30 a.m. when deputies from Pasquotank and Dare Counties went to Brown's home to attempt to serve an arrest warrant on Brown that stemmed from a felony drug investigation, officials said. He said state law allowed officials to blur faces if needed to protect an active internal investigation, and the process took time. She said it left her in tears.

Pasquotank County Sheriff Tommy Wooten told the outlet that seven deputies ended up on administrative leave; two resigned, and one retired.

There has been rumors circulating that the National Guard is in Elizabeth City for this event.

Another lawyer for Brown's family, Harry Daniels, told reporters earlier Monday that Brown was shot in the "back of the head", The Associated Press reported.

Deputies opened fire on Brown's vehicle as he attempted to drive away from his home.

"Mr. Brown was a convicted felon with a history of resisting arrest", Fogg said in the video posted late on Thursday.

Wooten promised to be transparent about what occurred at Brown's home. This information came from an independent autopsy that they had done.
