(AP) — A North Carolina prosecutor says he won’t release bodycam video in the fatal shooting of a Black man by sheriff’s deputies.

District Attorney Andrew Womble made the announcement at a news conference Tuesday. Body camera video played on a projector by Womble was broadcast by multiple news outlets, however.

Womble also said at the news conference that no charges would be filed against any of the deputies and that their actions were justified because Brown ignored their commands and drove his car directly at one of them before they fired any shots.
