The Fatal Shooting of Andrew Brown Jr. Leaves 7 Officers Suspended

Seven North Carolina deputies have been placed on administrative leave after the deadly shooting of Andrew Brown Jr.

A North Carolina sheriff will ask a court to release body camera footage of the police shooting.

Brown was killed as deputies were attempting to issue an arrest warrant on federal drug offenses. Deputies fired bullets at a sedan as it drove away from the scene.

Brown’s death occurred just one day after a Minneapolis jury found former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin guilty of murder and manslaughter in the death of George Floyd last May.
