Andrew Brown shooting latest: Family claims cops ‘hiding damning bodycam footage’ after only showing them short clip

ANDREW Brown’s family are furious after claiming they saw only a small snippet of cop’s bodycam footage showing the shooting of the dad.

It comes as Elizabeth City, North Carolina, has declared a state of emergency ahead of the release of the bodycam footage of Andrew Brown Jr.’s death.

Brown, 42, was fatally shot during a drug-related warrant executed by police on April 21.

Brown was confronted by a Pasquotank County Sheriff’s Office deputy attempting to serve him a warrant at around 8.30am on Wednesday.

The deputy fired a gun while Brown was allegedly driving away from his Elizabeth City, North Carolina home.

Since the April 21 shooting, authorities have provided limited information regarding the circumstances under which Brown was killed.

Protests demanding transparency have persisted in Elizabeth City, where the shooting occurred.

Brown’s family was supposed to watch the bodycam video on Monday at the Pasquotank County Sheriff’s Office.

It was not yet clear when the body camera footage would be released publicly.

North Carolina law requires that in order to release critical evidence such as body camera footage, a court order must be issued.
