]>> A cry for justice in Hoover, Alabama where police shot dead a 21-year-old man in what authorities admit was a mistake. Officers responding to reports of a gunman inside a shopping center killed Emantic EJ Bradford last week wrongly believing he was the suspect blamed for shooting and wounding two people.
>> No justice.>> No peace.>> Protestors on Monday night taking to the streets outraged by a police statement that seemed to justify the shooting. In describing the incident, police said the 21-year-old brandished a gun, which made the situation worse after shots were fired. That word, meaning to wave or flourish, possibly as a threat, drawing outcry from the victim's loved ones.
>> You didn’t see no gun waving, as you said.>> Bradford's family saying he had a legal permit to carry a firearm and insisted he wasn't a violent person.>> Very loving young man.>> Police later clarifying saying they nearly meant Mr. Bradford had a gun in his hand.
His family is demanding all the footage from the scene, including from a police body camera, be released to clear his name. Protesters are echoing that call.>> All we wanna do is make sure that the character assassination of EJ stops.>> Right.>> As an investigation unfolds, police continue to search for the man who did open fire at the mall.
