District Attorney Andrew Womble will hold a news conference Tuesday at 11 a.m. in Elizabeth City to give an update on the N.C. State Bureau of Investigation probe of the shooting death of Andrew Brown, Jr., by a Pasquotank County Sheriff’s Office deputy.
Brown was killed outside his home on Perry Street on April 21 while deputies were serving a search warrant from Dare County.
Three of the seven deputies that were at the scene at the time of the incident remain on administrative leave. Pasquotank Sheriff Tommy Wooten said the three still off-duty fired their weapons.
A Pitt County judge has delayed public release of video of the shooting, while only a few members of Brown’s family and one of their attorneys have seen limited amounts of the footage.
The shooting and withholding of the video has prompted daily protests in Elizabeth City that have remained peaceful with no reports of violence. There have been a handful arrests of demonstrators for curfew violations or impeding traffic.
