New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy and the state’s NAACP chapter are expressing concern about police officers’ response to a fight between two teenagers at a local mall. In video captured of the fight, two officers are seen pinning down and handcuffing a Black teenager while the other teenager sat and watched from a nearby couch, CBS New York reports.

“Although an investigation is still gathering the facts about this incident, I’m deeply disturbed by what appears to be racially disparate treatment in this video,” Murphy tweeted late Tuesday. “We’re committed to increasing trust between law enforcement and the people they serve.”
