HOOVER, Ala. | Police: Man killed by officer at mall was not the shooter
HOOVER, Ala.— Protesters on Saturday marched through an Alabama shopping mall where police killed a black man they later acknowledged was not the triggerman in a Thanksgiving night shooting that wounded two people.
An officer shot and killed 21-year-old Emantic Fitzgerald Bradford, Jr. of Hueytown while responding to the Thursday mall shooting.
Police said Bradford was fleeing the scene with a weapon.
Hoover Police initially told reporters Bradford had shot a teen at the mall, but later retracted the statement.
