The family of a North Carolina man shot and killed by sheriff's deputies said Monday that they were shown just 20 seconds of body-camera video that appeared to show the man with his hands on the steering wheel of his car before he was killed.

Loved ones of the man, Andrew Brown Jr., 42, had been expected to be shown the bodycam video just before noon Monday, but the viewing was pushed back several hours because of redactions sought by the county attorney, family attorneys said.

 
But even in just 20 seconds of video, Brown's loved ones said, it was clear that he wasn't a threat to law enforcement and shouldn't have been gunned down.

"My dad got executed just trying to save his own life," son Khalil Ferebee told reporters outside the Pasquotank County Sheriff's Office. "It ain't right. It ain't right at all."

Family attorney Chantel Cherry-Lassiter said the video showed Brown in his vehicle as it was blocked in the driveway in Elizabeth City by law enforcement, making an escape impossible. NBC News hasn't seen the video.

"Andrew had his hands on his steering wheel. He was not reaching for anything. He wasn't touching anything," she said.

"He had his hands firmly on the steering wheel. They run-up to his vehicle shooting. He still stood there, sat there in his vehicle, with his hands on the steering wheel while being shot at."

When asked whether Brown was shot in the back, attorney Harry Daniels told The Associated Press, “Yes, back of the head.”Caption
