    A Black man killed by authorities in North Carolina had his hands on his car steering wheel when he was shot, a family attorney said Monday after watching body camera video.

    Attorney Chantel Cherry-Lassiter watched a 20-second portion of body camera video with the family of Andrew Brown Jr. on Monday. She said Brown did not appear to be a threat to officers as he backed his vehicle out and tried to drive away.

    “He was not threatening them in any kind of fashion,” she told reporters at a news conference.

    Lassiter said she watched the 20-second video multiple times and took notes. Civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump, who’s also representing the family, said authorities only showed them a short portion from one body camera despite multiple officers being present.

    Lassiter said that shooting started as soon as the video started. She said she counted as many as eight deputies in the video, some wearing tactical uniforms and some in plainclothes.

    “They’re shooting and saying let me see your hands at the same time,” she said.

    Earlier Monday, a search warrant was released saying deputies obtained the warrant that brought them there after investigators recorded him selling small amounts of cocaine and methamphetamine to an informant, according to court documents released Monday.
