‘We absolutely are going to pursue justice’: Demands grow for cops to release bodycam footage after fatal shooting of NC Black man

A Black family in North Carolina is demanding that police in Elizabeth City, North Carolina release body camera footage of an encounter that left one of their relatives dead.

The Associated Press, via the Guardian, reports that the family of 42-year-old Andrew Brown is vowing to hold police accountable after he was fatally shot by a police deputy earlier this week.

Police say that the officer who shot Brown was executing a search warrant on Brown’s car at the time the shooting occurred. One eyewitness has claimed that Brown started driving away from the deputy when they opened fire on him.
