Officials in Elizabeth City said that starting Friday night, the curfew will run from midnight until 6 a.m. On previous nights, the curfew had taken effect at 8 p.m.
Protesters have been demanding justice and transparency, including the release of deputy body camera footage, after Brown, a Black man, was shot and killed last week.
Brown was fatally shot on April 21 by deputies serving drug-related search and arrest warrants at his house in the town of Elizabeth City, about 160 miles northeast of Raleigh. On Tuesday, Brown’s family released an independent autopsy showing he was shot five times, including in the back of the head. The state’s autopsy has not been released yet.
