DA says no officers will be charged in connection to Brown Jr.’s death

Andrew Brown Jr. shooting was ‘tragic, but justified,’ DA says
DA Andrew Womble said no officers will be criminally charged.
North Carolina District Attorney Andrew Womble said at a press conference on Tuesday that the deputy-involved shooting of Andrew Brown Jr. “while tragic, was justified” – and no law enforcement officers will be criminally charged in the case.
Womble, the elected district attorney for Judicial District 1, which covers seven counties of the northeastern part of the state, said that Brown was shot at by three Pasquotank deputies, whose actions were “justified because Brown’s actions caused deputies to reasonably believe it necessary to use force to protect themselves and others.”
Womble began playing four body camera videos during the press conference.
