The North Carolina Beat has learned that the family of Andrew Brown Jr., and their civil rights attorneys, Benjamin Crump, Bakari Sellers, and Harry Daniels will be able to see the bodycam footage of the fatal shooting of Brown at the hands of Pasquotank County Sheriff Deputies.
After the family and attorneys view the video at 11:30 a.m, they will hold a press conference to address the media about what they saw.
A judge in North Carolina has to allow the video to be released — it’s not something the sheriff’s office could do, said Pasquotank County Sheriff Tommy Wooten on Saturday.
Members of Brown’s family and legal team say the body camera video could be the first step at answering questions the family has about the circumstances leading up to his death.
I have not seen the warrant. The legal team has not seen the warrant. The family has not seen it, said civil rights attorney Harry Daniels in a press briefing Saturday.
Community members said they’re planning to meet outside the Pasquotank County Public Safety office Monday morning to demand the release of the body camera footage to the public.
