Partner Jon Buchan Quoted by WRAL

Partner Jon Buchan was recently quoted in a WRAL article, “Veteran officer says Pasquotank deputies had no legitimate reason to shoot Andrew Brown.”

The article discusses the case in Elizabeth City, NC where officers opened fire on a fleeing drug suspect last month.

Buchan was interviewed about whether police video should be released to the public. He said the public should now be able to view all of the video of the shooting recorded by body-worn and dashboard cameras.
