A state of emergency has been declared in Elizabeth City, North Carolina and Pasquotank County as police prepare to release body camera footage of officers killing Andrew Brown, a 42-year-old man who was shot on Wednesday during the execution of a search warrant.

The family was expecting to see the video on Monday morning, but are still waiting, WAVY reported. The footage will be released to the public once the family has viewed it.

“Show the tape,” Brown’s family attorney Harry Daniels said at a press conference on Monday. “If you ain’t got nothing to hide, show the tape.”

Attorney Ben Crump was also with the family on Monday to demand the release of the video.
