An Alabama city is set to respond to the state’s decision not to prosecute a police officer who killed a black man in a shopping mall on Thanksgiving.
Hoover Mayor Frank Brocato and others have scheduled a news conference for Wednesday about the slaying of Emantic “EJ” Bradford Jr.
Alabama Atty. Gen. Steve Marshall’s office announced Tuesday that a police officer would not be prosecuted after fatally shooting Bradford at a mall in Hoover as Black Friday shopping began.
The officer mistakenly shot Bradford after seeing him running with a gun following a shooting. The review showed that Bradford didn’t shoot his gun.
