Emantic Bradford was shot dead by police in an Alabama mall on Thanksgiving in what police claim was a case of mistaken identity.
Initially police claimed that they’d killed an active shooter in the mall. Then they admitted that the man they had killed wasn’t the shooter.
This week an autopsy confirmed the worst fears of the Bradford family — that EJ died for absolutely no reason and was shot from behind.
A shooting on Thanksgiving night at a mall in Alabama left one teenager dead and two injured, and police can’t get their story straight.
The incident occurred at 9:30 p.m. at the Riverchase Galleria in a suburb of Birmingham, Alabama, leaving 21-year-old Emantic Bradford Jr. dead, and two injured, including a 12-year-old girl.
Initially, Hoover police said that Bradford had shot and wounded two people, then changed their story to say that he hand brandished a gun but had not fired.
Turns out, Bradford never did any of those things.
