The family of Andrew Brown Jr. had filed a $30 million civil rights lawsuit in 2021, saying the man died because officers showed “intentional and reckless disregard of his life.”
North Carolina District Attorney Andrew Womble said that three officers involved in the killing of Brown “reasonably believed” that deadly force was justified.
“I know a con game when I see it," the civil rights activist said of police holding on to footage of the North Carolina shooting.
The FBI has opened a federal civil rights investigation into the shooting of the Black man last week.
The family, which was allowed to see just 20 seconds of the footage, called his death an execution.
They said a snippet of body camera footage shows Brown with his hands on his car's steering wheel when police shot him in the back of the head.
