Lawyers for the family of Andrew Brown Jr., a Black man shot by sheriff's deputies in North Carolina last week, said body cam video showed Brown had been "executed" and accused officials of showing them only a small portion of the video evidence.
Lawyers for the family said the 42-year-old Brown had his hands on the steering wheel of his car and was complying with police orders when he was gunned down, leaving a trail of shell casings in the driveway of his home in Elizabeth City.
"They were shooting and saying 'Let me see your hands!' at the same time," Chantel Cherry-Lassiter, one of a team of lawyers for the family, told a news briefing on Monday.
"Let's be clear: this was an execution," Cherry-Lassiter said.
Another lawyer for Brown's family, Harry Daniels, told reporters earlier Monday that Brown was shot in the "back of the head," The Associated Press reported.
