Family of man killed inside Alabama mall asking police to release body cam video

Crime & Safety

Hundreds of people protested outside a Birmingham area shopping mall following a deadly police involved shooting that happened on Thanksgiving.

An officer responding to reports of a shooting at the mall, shot and killed 21 year old Emantic Bradford.

An 18 year old and a 12 year old were injured.

Authorities say the officer thought Bradford had fired the shots, but they now say Bradford, who was armed, likely was not the shooter.

Family members are asking the police to release the body camera video showing Bradford being shot.

Police say they believe two people were involved in a fight in the mall which led to the shooting and that there is at least one gunman still on the run.

The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency has taken over the investigation.
