Civil Attorney Benjamin Crump was recently hired to represent the family of Emantic Bradford Jr. who was mistakenly shot and killed by a responding police officer.
Crump, surrounded by Bradford's relatives said :" He saw a black man with a gun and he made his determination that he must be a criminal, they concluded their investigation while EJ was lying on the mall floor, bleeding out, dying...There's a murderer on the loose largely because police rushed to judgment."
A relative holding the killed man's photos collapsed wailing as others helped her up and consoled her. According to them there was a shocking detail: Bradford has been shot in the face.
Police claimed initially that the 21-year-old had shot two teenagers, before saying that probably he didn't.
