Elizabeth City curfew lifted two weeks after Andrew Brown shooting

Elizabeth City and Pasquotank County have lifted curfews that were implemented after county sheriff’s deputies fatally shot a black man in the city.

Websites for the city and county stated that the 8 p.m. curfews were lifted on Thursday.

The curfews were implemented April 26 in the wake of protests against the shooting death of Andrew Brown Jr. outside his Elizabeth City home on April 21.

Pasquotank County sheriff’s deputies were serving drug-related search and arrest warrants when the shooting occurred. Brown was behind the wheel of his car when he was shot five times, including in the back of the head, according to an independent autopsy commissioned by his family.

Police camera footage has yet to be made public or shown in its entirety to Brown’s family. The shooting has sparked peaceful protests, with marchers demanding release of the video and police reform.

A prosecutor has said that Brown’s car ran into the deputies before they opened fire, while a family attorney who watched a 20-second clip of the footage disagreed, saying that Brown posed no threat and was driving away from deputies. The sheriff has said his deputies weren’t injured.
