(CNN)Pasquotank County, North Carolina, Sheriff Tommy Wooten said Saturday he wants body cam footage of the fatal police shooting of Andrew Brown Jr. made public.
Brown, a 42-year-old Black man, was shot and killed Wednesday by Pasquotank County sheriff's deputies when they attempted to serve him with an arrest warrant in Elizabeth City, North Carolina, the sheriff's office said.
Few details have been released about the shooting, but the sheriff previously said "many" body cameras were worn.
In the sheriff's office video message posted to Facebook Saturday, Fogg said they have asked the North Carolina Sheriffs' Association to appoint an outside sheriff's office to conduct an internal affairs investigation of everyone involved in the incident.
Parker said no one from the Elizabeth City Police Department was involved in serving the arrest warrant, search warrant or the shooting on Wednesday.
