Andrew Brown Jr shooting latest – Al Sharpton to give dad-of-10’s eulogy as deputies who shot him are identified

CIVIL rights activist Al Sharpton will deliver a eulogy at Andrew Brown Jr’s funeral next week.

A service for the dad-of-10 – who was shot dead by cops in North Carolina during a drug-related warrant executed by police on April 21 – will be held in Elizabeth County on Monday (May 3).

It comes as Pasquotank County Sheriff Tommy Wooten on Thursday released the names of the deputies involved in the incident.

He revealed four of the cops at the scene did not fire their weapons – but other three who did will remain on administrative leave until the investigation is complete.

The four back on active duty are Lt Steve Judd, Sgt Michael Swindell, Sgt Kendall Bishop and Sgt Joel Lunsford, while those staying on leave are Investigator Daniel Meads, Deputy Sheriff II Robert Morgan and Corp Aaron Lewellyn.

Sheriff Wooten said: “I’ll continue to be transparent whenever I can — without interfering in the independent investigation.”
