North Carolina District Attorney Andrew Womble announced on Tuesday that the shooting of Andrew Brown was justified and no charges will be filed against the officers involved in the case. During the press conference Womble played four bodycam videos that recorded the incident.
On April 21 deputies were attempting to serve a search warrant at Brown’s home in Elizabeth City, North Carolina. When the deputies arrived outside of the home, Brown got into his car and attempted to drive away. At one point Brown tried to run over a deputy and that is when the deputies opened fire.
“I find that the facts of this case clearly illustrate the officers who used deadly force on Andrew Brown Jr. did so reasonably and only when a violent felon used a deadly weapon to put their lives in danger. Brown’s actions and conduct were indeed dangerous by the time of the shooting… Brown posed an immediate threat to the safety of the officers and others.” – North Carolina District Attorney Andrew Womble
Brown was shot and killed during the incident. The deputies who opened fire did so because they were threatened by Brown’s actions.
