Protesters demanding answers in the Thanksgiving shooting death of E.J. Bradford on Tuesday night stopped traffic on U.S. 31 and marched to the Riverchase Galleria.
The protest first began outside Hoover City Hall around 6 p.m. and continued down U.S. 31 to the Riverchase Galleria--the place where Bradford was fatally shot by a Hoover police officer Thanksgiving night.
The protesters gathered to say they want to hold law enforcement to a higher standard. “This is just one step in the process to bring attention to these issues," said activist Carlos Chaverst Jr. They are also calling to boycott the Galleria mall and for a “real apology” to Bradford’s family. Protesters said they weren’t satisfied by Hoover Mayor Frank Brocato’s statement he read earlier Monday night.
