The family of Andrew Brown Jr. gathered at a church in Elizabeth City, North Carolina, on Monday to remember his life and call for transparency and justice in his death after the 42-year-old was fatally shot by sheriff's deputies two weeks ago.

The Rev. Al Sharpton, delivering the eulogy at Brown's funeral, likened the authorities' lack of transparency in Brown's killing to a "shell game," the classic street game that is secretly rigged against those participating.

"I know a con game when I see it. Release the whole tape and let the folks see what happened to Andrew Brown," Sharpton said.

"Don't talk to us like we're stupid. If there's nothing on the tape, there won't be nothing on it in 45 days, and if there's something on it in 45 days, there's something on it today.
