Media Updates: Shooting Death Of Emantic “EJ” Fitzgerald Bradford Jr.


SUMMARY:

Members of the Bradford family have retained national civil rights attorney Benjamin L. Crump of Ben Crump Law, PLLC, in the shooting death of 21-year-old Emantic “EJ” Fitzgerald Bradford Jr.

Bradford, 21, was fatally shot while shopping on Thanksgiving night (Nov. 22, 2018) by an off-duty Hoover police officer working security at the Riverchase Galleria mall outside Birmingham, Alabama. Before this occurred, shots were fired in the mall, and witnesses said they believe Bradford was assisting others in escaping when he was shot dead by the security officer. Initially, Hoover Police said Bradford was the shooter, but later backtracked and said it was “unlikely” Bradford was involved.
