Andrew Brown Jr. Police Shooting North Carolina

Police shooting of Black man in North Carolina an ‘execution,’ family’s lawyer says – www.cbc.ca

From www.cbc.ca Reuters Excerpt:  Lawyers for the family of Andrew Brown Jr., a Black man shot by sheriff’s deputies in North Carolina last week, said body cam video showed Brown had been “executed” and accused officials of showing them only a small portion of the video evidence.

Lawyers for the family said the 42-year-old Brown had his hands on the steering wheel of his car and was complying with police orders when he was gunned down, leaving a trail of shell casings in the driveway of his home in Elizabeth City.

“They were shooting and saying ‘Let me see your hands!’ at the same time,” Chantel Cherry-Lassiter, one of a team of lawyers for the family, told a news briefing on Monday.

But even in 20 seconds of video, Brown’s loved ones said, it was clear that he wasn’t a threat to law enforcement and shouldn’t have been gunned down.

“My dad got executed just trying to save his own life,” son Khalil Ferebee told reporters outside the Pasquotank County Sheriff’s Office. “It ain’t right. It ain’t right at all.”
