At least two people were arrested as protests continued for a seventh straight night Tuesday in Elizabeth City, North Carolina, following the shooting of Andrew Brown Jr. last week.

Dozens of protesters remained out on the streets in violation of the city’s curfew that went into effect at 8 p.m. Police issued multiple unlawful assembly warnings for the crowd, which they said was “blocking officers and is continuing to violate North Carolina General Statutes.”

“The final warning has been given to disperse,” Elizabeth City police said just before 10 p.m. “Arrests will be made at this time.”

The protests come after the FBI launched a civil rights probe Tuesday into the death of Brown, a Black man killed by deputies in North Carolina. His family also released an independent autopsy showing he was shot five times, including in the back of the head.
