Testimony: Man shot by Alabama police held gun over victim

By The Associated Press

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Testimony shows that a man who was fatally shot by police who mistook him for a suspect in an Alabama shopping mall last year was standing over a shooting victim with a gun moments before he was killed.

Details of the video surrounding the police shooting of Emantic "EJ" Bradford Jr. came out Thursday during a hearing for a man charged in the gunfire that preceded the killing.

A state police investigator testified that surveillance video shows Bradford standing with a gun after a man was shot and wounded at a mall near Birmingham on Thanksgiving night.

Police subsequently shot and killed Bradford, whose death sparked days of protests.

A judge ruled there's enough evidence for grand jurors to consider indicting Erron Brown, the man jailed on an attempted murder charge in the initial shooting.
