Protesters made demands for transparency Wednesday night after a man was fatally shot by a Pasquotank County deputy in Elizabeth City, North Carolina.

Few details have been released, but the Pasquotank County Sheriff’s Office said the shooting happened around 8:30 a.m. while deputies served a search warrant in the 400 block of Perry Street, off Roanoke Avenue.

The man, identified as Andrew Brown Jr., got into his car and started to drive away from law enforcement, according to those who say they witnessed the shooting. That’s when shots were fired by the deputy. Neighbors said they heard six to eight shots.

His family says Brown did not carry a gun and wouldn’t hurt anyone. He was the father of 10 children. His family said he is 40-years-old.

Pasquotank Sheriff Tommy Wooten II and other Pasquotank County officials held a press conference at 3:30 p.m. Wednesday to address the shooting. Officials declined to confirm anything witnesses and family members said.

District Attorney Andrew Womble said that they want “accurate answers, not fast answers.” He made the request for the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation to take over the case.

Wooten said the entire shooting was captured on the deputies body-warn camera. The Pasquotank Board of Commissioners approved the purchase of the county’s first 33 body-worn cameras for deputies last September.

As of Wednesday afternoon, Wooten said he had not viewed the footage himself. He said he planned to release it, although he did not give a timeline.

“The sheriff’s office trusts the ability of our North Carolina State Bureau of Investigations and we will be transparent and we will take the proper actions based on the findings of that investigation,” Wooten said.

The deputy will remain on administrative leave until the investigation is complete. The sheriff’s office didn’t identify who the deputy was or how long they had been with the department.

Portland police officers chase demonstrators after a riot was declared during a protest against the killing of Daunte Wright on April 12, 2021 in Portland, Oregon.

The mayor of Portland, Ore. has asked for the public’s help putting an end to the violent protests that have ravaged his city since Black Lives Matter riots first erupted last spring.

Members of Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler’s security staff fight to close a door to The Portland Building after protesters followed and heckled the mayor when he left a protest on July 22, 2020 in Portland, Oregon.

“They want to burn, they want bash, they want to intimidate, they want to assault,” Mayor Ted Wheeler said Friday, while announcing the city would extend its state of emergency through Monday.

Portland police officers tackle demonstrators on April 12, 2021 in Portland, Oregon.

“If BLM leaders can show the courage to stand up to this mob, then we all should,” said the mayor, singling out the “the self-described anarchist mob” responsible for “criminal intimidation and violence.”
“Together we can make a stand … and take our city back.”

Wheeler invited the public’s help in identifying the violent protesters, while saying that that police will be allowed to use all tactics at their disposal to quell the violence, including the use of kettling, in which cops surround a crowd to contain it.“Our job is to unmask them, arrest them and prosecute them,” Wheeler said of the violent offenders. “If you have any information, please contact the police.”

Hundreds of demonstrators gathered at the Columbus police headquarters on Tuesday night to protest the fatal police shooting of 16-year-old Ma’Khia Bryant.

The crowd pushed past police barriers to get near the building, where they approached officers and chanted the name of Bryant, who was shot dead outside of a home earlier in the day.

“She was just a kid,” the group also yelled.

Protesters hold a sign to honor Ma’Khia Bryant, a Black girl who was fatally shot by a police officer in Columbus, Ohio.

Cops with bicycles pushed protesters back and threatened to deploy pepper spray. But the demonstrations in the city’s downtown appeared to remain rather calm, according to social media footage.

While protesters were outside the headquarters, city officials released bodycam footage of the fatal shooting.

In the recording, Bryant appeared to attempt to stab two people with a knife before the officer fired several shots, striking her.

A crowd gathers in front of the Ohio Statehouse during a protest.

Police were initially called to the home for a call of attempted stabbing.

It wasn’t immediately who made the 911 call.

An aunt of Bryant has told The Columbus Dispatch that the teen lived in a foster home on the block.
