The District Attorney declined to file charges against sheriff’s deputies who shot and killed Andrew Brown Jr. last month in Elizabeth City, N.C. The DA said the shooting was justified.
Brown was killed while sitting in his car as deputies carried out a warrant for drug charges. Brown’s family called his death an execution. Brown was shot in the back of the head. Andrew Brown Jr. was unarmed.
Bodycam video shows the officers shooting at Brown as he drove away. Brown’s death came one day after Derek Chauvin was found guilty of murder in George Floyd’s killing.
How many more unarmed Black people have to die for real police reform to happen? Already this year, 66 Black people have been shot and killed by the police.
