Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall Sued in Riverchase Galleria Shooting Case

Relatives of an Alabama man fatally shot by Hoover police inside the Riverchase Galleria on Thanksgiving have filed a lawsuit against Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall to make the state release more evidence about the case.

The parents of Emantic “EJ” Bradford Jr. have joined the Alabama NAACP and the American Civil Liberties Union in suing Marshall and the police chief of Hoover.

Marshall’s office has cleared Hoover police in Bradford’s shooting, but the suit maintains authorities haven’t released all the evidence about the case.

The lawsuit seeks all police bodycam video plus reports and other information about the killing, which occurred when police mistook Bradford for the gunman in an earlier shooting.

The state says it’s working on a response to the lawsuit, which was filed today in Birmingham.
