A Virginia sheriff’s deputy shot and severely injured an unarmed black man after mistaking his cell phone for a gun, recently released bodycam video reveals.

At the time of the early morning Wednesday shooting, Isaiah Brown, 32, was speaking to a 911 dispatcher near his home in Spotsylvania County to report a domestic dispute with his brother, according to recently released 911 audio.

Brown can be heard telling the dispatcher that he is planning to kill his brother. Moments later, the deputy spotted Brown.

Earlier in the evening, the same deputy had given Brown a ride home after his car broke down.

When the deputy encountered Brown the second time, he ordered Brown to “show me your hands” and “drop the gun” several times before firing several shots, according to the audio.

Virginia Commonwealth Attorney LaBravia Jenkins’ office will be looking into what happened at the shooting.

On Friday, activists gathered outside the sheriff’s office to protest the shooting after law enforcement officials announced a probe of the incident.

“After viewing the Spotsylvania County Sheriff’s deputy bodycam video and listening to the 911 call, it is evident that the tragic shooting of Isaiah Brown was completely avoidable,” said David Hynes, a lawyer for Brown in a statement to the press.

Family to see more footage of North Carolina deputy shooting

The family of a Black man who was fatally shot by sheriff’s deputies in North Carolina is expected to view more than 18 minutes of body camera video of the incident on Tuesday.

The footage will to be shown to family members of Andrew Brown Jr. at 3 p.m., according to county officials. Family attorney Chantel Cherry-Lassiter said a news conference will likely follow the viewing.

Brown was behind the wheel of his car and outside of his house in Elizabeth City when he was shot on April 21. Sheriff’s deputies working as part of a regional drug task force were serving a drug-related search warrant at the time.

A prosecutor has said that Brown’s car made “contact” with law enforcement officers before the shooting began. But Brown’s family and their attorneys have said Brown was driving away and died from an unjustified “execution.”

The office of Pasquotank County Sheriff Tommy Wooten II scheduled the Tuesday viewing following a judge’s ruling on Thursday that said the family could view the footage within 10 days.

“Because we’re continuing to be as transparent as we can under state law, we will be allowing the family members identified in the judge’s order to view the specified videos much sooner than the judge’s deadline requires,” the sheriff’s office said in a statement on Friday.

Judge Jeffery Foster ruled that the family will be able to view less than 20 minutes of the nearly two hours of video th at was recorded.

“The portions of the videos withheld are found to not contain images of the deceased, and thus are not appropriate for disclosure at this time,” Foster wrote in his ruling.

Foster has said that he would not publicly release the footage because it could jeopardize the ongoing investigation into Brown’s death or threaten the safety of people seen in the footage.

Foster said the video must remain out of public view for at least 30 days, but he would consider releasing it after that point if investigations are complete.

Family members have so far only been allowed to view a 20-second clip from a single body camera. They say it shows Brown was trying to drive away when he was shot.

Brown’s shooting has drawn national attention to the small, majority Black city in the state’s rural northeastern corner. And many city residents — as well as nationally prominent civil rights leaders and attorneys — are demanding full release of the footage.

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.”
