EJ Bradford was shot and killed by a uniformed Hoover police officer in the Riverchase Galleria mall. Police initially said Bradford fired shots that wounded an 18-year-old man and a 12-year-old girl, but four days later acknowledged a different person fired the shots that wounded the 18-year-old man—pointedly failing to state who shot the 12-year-old girl, Molly Davis—and that the shooter was still at large. It was initially reported the officer was off-duty and serving as mall security. Bradford may have had a licensed gun at the time of his killing and been helping others when police arrived and killed him.
