Black man shot and killed by sheriff’s deputy in North Carolina
Eyewitness says Andrew Brown was shot while he tried to drive away from police in Elizabeth City, spurring angry protests
A sheriff’s deputy in North Carolina has shot and killed a black man while serving a search warrant, authorities said, raising tensions over policing in the wake of the Derek Chauvin trial and Ma’Khia Bryant killing.
The deputy in Elizabeth City, close to the Atlantic coast, was placed on leave pending a review by the state bureau of investigation, Pasquotank county sheriff Tommy Wooten said at a news conference on Wednesday.
Wooten said the deputy shot Andrew Brown at about 8:30 on Wednesday morning. The deputy was wearing an active body camera at the time of the shooting, said the sheriff, who declined to identify the officer or say how many shots he fired.
Wooten did not give any details about the warrant. Court records show Brown was 42 years old and had a history of drug charges and a misdemeanor drug possession conviction.
An eyewitness said that Brown was shot while trying to drive away, and that deputies fired at him multiple times. The car skidded out of Brown’s yard and eventually hit a tree, said Demetria Williams, who lives on the same street.
Williams said after hearing one gunshot, she ran outside, where she saw other shots being fired at the car.
“When they opened the door he was already dead,” Williams told Associated Press. “He was slumped over.”
She said officers tried to perform chest compressions on him.
A car authorities removed from the scene appeared to have multiple bullet holes and a broken rear windshield.
