Family questions why Va. deputy shot unarmed Black man 10 times

SPOTSYLVANIA COUNTY, Va.  — The family of a Black man shot by a Virginia sheriff’s deputy this week says he’s in intensive care with 10 bullet wounds, and they have no idea why.
Relatives of Isaiah Brown spoke with Washington TV station WRC about the shooting outside Brown’s home early Wednesday morning.
Brown was unarmed, they said, and they haven’t been given a reason why the deputy opened fire.
The encounter was recorded by the deputy’s body camera, but state police said they won’t release it pending an investigation.
The ACLU of Virginia has demanded that any footage of the incident be made public immediately.

As a college student, making an extra buck now and then was very important. I started as a part-time reporter since I was 19 yo, and I couldn’t believe it might become a long-time career. I'm happy to be part of the Virginian Tribune's team.
