Andrew Brown, the latest police shooting victim BLM has rallied behind, struck police officers with his car before he was shot and killed according to new evidence being shown by the prosecution.
Brown, a well known drug dealer with an extensive criminal record, is claimed by his family to have been executed in cold blood by seven police officers in Elizabeth City, North Carolina.
BLM activists have rallied behind Brown and his family and are calling for the officers involved to be criminally charged. The officers involved have already been suspended from active duty while the investigation is ongoing.
Lawyers for the Brown family claim that Brown could not have posed a threat due to the fact that both of his hands were on the steering wheel of his vehicle.
The new evidence shows that Brown, who was seated in his car in the driveway of his house when officers arrived to execute a search warrant as part of a narcotics investigation, did pose a deadly threat to the officers.
According to the District Attorney, video footage of the shooting shows that Brown, rather than attempting to escape, as claimed by the family lawyers, actually made an attempt to drive into the police officers before the shooting began.
Footage of the incident viewed by the District Attorney and family lawyers has not yet been released to the public.
