Andrew Brown Jr. was shot in the back of the head by police, family attorney says
Andrew Brown Jr.'s son, who was allowed to view police body camera video of the shooting, said his father was "executed."
Attorneys representing the family of Andrew Brown Jr. said Monday that North Carolina sheriff's deputies shot the 42-year-old Black man in the back of the head as they were serving a warrant last week. Brown's son, who was allowed to view what the family's attorneys said was 20 seconds of police body camera video, called the shooting in Elizabeth City an execution.
"My dad got executed just by trying to save his own life," Khalil Ferebee told reporters during an afternoon press conference.
Family attorney Harry Daniels said Brown was shot in the back of the head, and he called for the officers involved in the shooting to be arrested "right now."
