13. Sheriff Releases Names of Deputies Involved in Andrew Brown's Shooting

ELIZABETH CITY, N.C.—The Pasquotank County Sheriff released the names of three deputies who fired their weapons during last week’s fatal shooting of Andrew Brown Jr. and said they would remain on administrative leave pending further investigation.

Four other deputies who were put on leave after the shooting returned to active duty, Sheriff Tommy Wooten said Thursday.

Mr. Brown, a 42-year-old Black man, was shot five times on April 21 by deputies as they attempted to serve drug-related search and arrest warrants, authorities said. The Federal Bureau of Investigation has opened a civil-rights investigation into the shooting.

“After carefully examining the body camera footage of the incident with my own staff, it’s obvious that four of the deputies never fired their weapons and deserve to be reinstated,” Sheriff Wooten said in a news release.
