Prosecutor To Discuss Probe Into Fatal Shooting Of Black Man

A North Carolina prosecutor says he is ready to discuss the results of a state investigation into the fatal shooting of a Black man by sheriff’s deputies. District Attorney Andrew Womble issued a statement saying he will hold a news conference Tuesday morning to talk about what the State Bureau of Investigation found in its probe of the death of Andrew Brown Jr. A bureau spokeswoman didn’t immediately respond to an email Monday, nor did Womble. Deputies attempting to serve drug-related search and arrest warrants shot and killed Brown outside his Elizabeth City home on April 21.
