Police shot and killed an innocent 21 year old African American man (Emantic Bradford) — which the police thought the 21 year old had shot at multiple people who were having an violent altercation inside the mall, on Thanksgiving Day. Turns out the 21 year old (Emantic Bradford) wasn’t the suspect.. the gunman happens to be still on the loose.
- Police said he “may have been involved in some aspect of the altercation,” which led to an 18-year-old man and 12-year-old girl being struck by gunfire, but he did not fire any shots. One of two officers responding to the fight shot Bradford, who they said was “brandishing a handgun.”
Through tears, his mother, April Pipkins, said no one should be treated how she has been by Hoover police.
Initially, police said they believed Bradford fired the shots that injured both people, but later said he had not fired any shots and another man, still at-large, was likely responsible.
“I’m outraged as a mother because I carried him for nine months,” Pipkins told ABC News. “As a mother, no one understands how I feel. It’s like someone ripped my heart out.”
