Police Arrest Suspect In Thanksgiving Day Shooting At Alabama Mall

Share

Inspector Frank Lempka with the U.S. Marshals in Atlanta said Brown was arrested Thursday morning at a relative's home in south Fulton County, just outside of Atlanta.

The Alabama mall shooter is under arrest a week after a Black Army vet was killed by police and blamed for the crime.

A Hoover police officer, responding to reports of gunshots, fatally shot 21-year-old Emantic "EJ" Bradford Jr.at Riverchase Galleria mall after the officer said he mistook Bradford for the gunman. A 12-year-old bystander was also shot and taken to Children's Hospital by a Hoover Fire Department rescue squad. Police initially said they thought Bradford had shot the teen after a physical altercation but retracted that statement Friday night. Police have not said who shot the child, The Birmingham News reported. "Chief Derzis acknowledged and apologized for the issuance of an inaccurate public statement in the wake of this tragedy that implied that Mr. Bradford was the suspected shooter". But the case has been turned over to the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency (ALEA), which said Wednesday that it will "not release information concerning pending criminal investigations".

Two other people were injured in the mall shooting before officers arrived. They say they'll look at releasing information on their own if no response comes by noon Monday.

A minister who described himself as the Bradford family's pastor, Mike McClure Jr., said releasing video of the shooting would help calm growing tensions that have included days of protests and racist social media posts.

According to FOX Atlanta, 20-year-old Erron Brown was arrested exactly one week after the fatal incident which took place on Thanksgiving night.

Authorities didn't announce charges in the shooting of another person who was wounded, 12-year-old girl, and a spokeswoman for the agency did not respond to an email seeking details.

State investigators said any information released prematurely could hamper their investigation.

ALEA says Brown will be booked into the Jefferson County Jail in Birmingham on a $150,000 bond once he is extradited back to Alabama. The 20-year-old is expected to face additional charges.

Bradford's funeral will be we held on Saturday at 10:00 a.m.at the Boutwell Auditorium in Birmingham, according to his online obituary.
