Thursday, May 6, the Pasquotank Board of Comissioners voted unanimously for a resolution that calls on the North Carolina General Assembly to improve transparency and give law enforcement the ability to release footage more quickly to the public.

The resolution will be forwarded to the North Carolina General Assembly. 

On Tuesday, May 4, protesters once again gathered in the streets of Elizabeth City, demanding the body camera footage of the killing of Andrew Brown Jr. to be released.

This time, the group obtained a public assembly permit from the city. They plan to march from Colonial to Road Street, to Eringhaus Street, and then to Main Street.

The funeral of Brown began Monday, May 3, at noon, and Rev. Al Sharpton gave the eulogy. 

Hundreds were in attendance at the service that got underway with a choir and speakers who talked about Brown and continued to call for video footage to be released and transpareny. 

The funeral concluded around 2:30 p.m. on Monday after Ben Crump, Bakari Sellers, Rev. Dr. William Barber and others delivered messages. The mothers of Eric Garner, Fred Cox and George Floyd's sister also spoke.

Two viewings were held Sunday, May 2. One was at Horton’s Funeral Home and was for family and friends. The second viewing was  for the public at the Museum of the Albermale in Elizabeth City. 

Darius Horton is the funeral director at Horton’s Funeral Home. He said on Monday at 10:45 a.m., they will transport Brown’s body by horse and carriage from the Waterfront Park to the Fountain of Life Church where services will begin at noon.

A tribute wall with messages of remembrance can be seen here.  

Protests also continued on Sunday, as many gathered at Waterfront Park for a march organized by Justice 4 the Next Generation. The march went through downtown Elizabeth City and concluded with a rally at the public safety building.

Protests concluded around 7:30 p.m. on Sunday at the Pasquotank County Sheriff's Office after several local leaders spoke to the crowd.

Protests continued Saturday in Elizabeth City as community members, faith leaders and others continued to call for the full release of body camera footage from the Pasquotank County Sheriff's Office in the shooting death of Brown.

Around noon, a large group participated in a roughly three-mile march and demonstration through the city's economic center.

Others continued to gather outside of the sheriff's office. Rev. Curtis Gatewood was among those speaking to the crowd and media. 

Gatewood was arrested during the protests Tuesday. He spoke for roughly an hour about his experience and the changes he hopes to see.

Brown was shot and killed by deputies on Wednesday, April 21 while they were serving a warrant.

Since then, protesters have taken to the streets each day calling for the full public release of body cam footage as well as answers and changes following Brown’s death. 

On Wednesday, a day after Brown’s family and attorney released an independent autopsy report saying Brown was shot four times in the arm and once in the back of the head as he tried to leave the scene in his car, a judge denied requests for the video’s public release. The judge did, however, grant release of the footage to Brown’s son and attorney.

On Tuesday, the N.C. NAACP declared a "moral emergency" in the wake of the shooting. The Rev. Dr. William J. Barber also called on the North Carolina Attorney General to take over the investigation. In a statement, Barber called the sheriff and the district attorney “inept, incompetent and incapable.”

While protests throughout the city have remained peaceful thus far, curfew violations have resulted in several arrests in recent days.

The city had issued a nightly curfew lasting from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. On Friday, however, the city announced it was extending the curfew to midnight.

Protests are expected to continue as the community prepares to lay Brown to rest.
