BIRMINGHAM — Testimony indicates that the man fatally shot by police at the Hoover Galleria on Thanksgiving stood over the victim with a gun right before he was killed, according to WVTM.
This information was revealed at a Thursday hearing for Erron Brown, the man charged with the gunfire that came right before the death of Emantic “EJ” Bradford, reported WVTM.
WTVM reported that a police investigator with the state gave testimony that the surveillance footage showed Bradford was standing with a gun after a man had been shot at the Riverchase Galleria incident from Thanksgiving night.
Bradford was then shot and killed by Hoover Police, an incident which launched a number of protests, according to WVTM.
The judge ruled that enough evidence exists for a grand jury to consider indicting Erron Brown, who is in jail, on an attempted murder charge related to the shooting that is alleged to have led to the events at the Galleria on Thanksgiving night, reported WVTM.
