Officer serving warrant 'shoots and kills' black dad-of-10 as he drove away.

A BLACK dad-of-10 was reportedly shot dead by a cop who was trying to serve him a search warrant on Wednesday.

Andrew Brown Jr, 40, was killed after entering his vehicle and beginning to leave his residence while authorities were at his home, according to reports.

Locals reported hearing between six to eight shots at around 8.30am in Elizabeth City, North Carolina, when the deputy opened fire.

"It's been a tragic day," Sheriff Tommy Wooten said at a press conference on Wednesday.

Little detail was offered on the incident but Wooten did confirm the officer was wearing an active body cam at the time of the incident.

The officer has not been identified but has been placed on administrative leave.

Brown's relatives have insisted he was unarmed and did not hurt anyone during the incident.

An emergency city council meeting has been called for 6pm.

"During the execution of the search warrant, a citizen who was subject to the search warrant was shot and fatally wounded," the Sheriff's department earlier said in a statement.

The dad's body was taken out of his vehicle and placed inside a blue tent - where it remained for several hours after the shooting.

The scene drew a large crowd of angry protestors as well as gaining widespread attention on social media, after multiple live stream videos were shared of the outrage.

"The sheriff needs to address these people," Keith Rivers, president of the Pasquotank County NAACP, told local news station WAVY.
