first_imgA civil rights attorney is blasting the Hoover Police Department for the fatal shooting of a black man at the Riverchase Galleria on Thanksgiving.Emantic Bradford Jr., 21, was killed by an officer at the mall following a shooting during a Black Friday sale Thursday night.Bradford’s family and their attorney Benjamin Crump, demanded authorities release any surveillance videos from the mall or body camera footage that could shed light on what happened in the moments before Bradford’s death.“My baby ain’t here no more,” said father Emantic Bradford. “He didn’t get a chance to even try to survive. You didn’t offer him medical attention. You just let him lie there and bleed out.”In the hours after his death, police accused Bradford of being the shooter, but new information and witnesses revealed Friday that while he was holding a gun at the time of his death, he did not shoot either of the victims.Crump said several witnesses told  the family that the officer who killed Bradford didn’t issue any verbal commands before firing his weapon.An 18-year-old male and a 12-year-old girl were also injured in the shooting.Police said at least one of the gunmen is still at large. This morning, the Hoover Police Department said they’ll be giving weekly updates regarding the investigation.pic.twitter.com/MjCdlKO9al— Hoover Police Dept (@HooverPD) November 26, 2018last_img
