(CNN) District Attorney Andrew Womble said Tuesday that the deputies who fatally shot Andrew Brown Jr. last month were justified in using deadly force, saying Brown "recklessly" drove at the officers on scene while trying to flee arrest.

"Mr. Brown's death, while tragic, was justified because Mr. Brown's actions caused three deputies to reasonably believe it was necessary to use deadly force to protect themselves and others," Womble said.

Brown was shot twice, including once in the back of the head, by Pasquotank County sheriff's deputies in Elizabeth City, North Carolina, on April 21 when they attempted to serve two felony warrants and a search warrant, Womble said.

Four body-camera videos shown to the public for the first time showed the entirety of the incident, which lasts 44 seconds from the time officers exit their vehicle to the time Brown is removed from his.
