ELIZABETH CITY, NC (AP) — The family of a 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.

County officials said the recordings will be shown to relatives of Andrew Brown Jr. at 3 p.m. Tuesday.

Brown was behind the wheel of his car in Elizabeth City when he was shot on April 21. Deputies were serving a drug-related search warrant.

A prosecutor said Brown’s car made “contact” with officers before the shooting began. But Brown’s family says he was driving away and called it an unjustified “execution.”
