Shooting Death of Emantic “E.J.” Bradford Jr. to
Hoover Police Department and
Alabama State Bureau of Investigation
(MONTGOMERY) – Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall today informed the
Hoover Police Department and the Alabama State Bureau of Investigation that he has
concluded that the Hoover police officer who shot and killed Emantic “E.J.” Bradford Jr.
at the Riverchase Galleria mall on November 22, 2018, did not commit a crime under
Alabama law and thus will not be criminally charged for his actions. The Attorney
General further noted that it was his understanding that the Federal Bureau of
Investigation had reviewed the matter and found no evidence to initiate a case against
the officer for civil rights violation(s).
Also this morning, the Attorney General’s Office showed surveillance video of the
