Hoover Police Captain Gregg Rector said Friday night that the suspect killed by police after the Thanksgiving night shooting at a mall in Alabama was likely not the one who shot a teenager that evening.
An 18-year-old was shot twice and a 12-year-old was shot in the back. The killed suspect Emantic Fitzgerald Bradford.Jr, a 21-year-old was shot while fleeing the scene and brandishing a weapon. Police said at first that he was responsible for the teen shooting, but later retracted that statement. Investigators believe that more than two people were involved and at least one still at-large. Police added that they "regret that our initial media release was not totally accurate."
