State of emergency in N.C. over bodycam video

The mayor of Elizabeth City declared a state of emergency Monday as authorities in North Carolina worked to redact bodycam footage of the fatal shooting of Andrew Brown Jr. before allowing the Black man’s family and lawyers to view it. 

The family and its representatives plan on viewing the video at the Pasquotank County Sheriff’s Office, lawyers said at a news conference where they urged immediate release of the video.

“City officials realize there may potentially be a period of civil unrest within the city following the public release of that footage,” Mayor Bettie Parker said in the emergency declaration.

Lawyer Harry Daniels said the family was told they could see the video at 11:30 a.m. Monday, only to be told about an hour before that time that the video was being redacted and would not be available until later in the day. The lawyers said they wanted the raw video, not a redacted version.
