Independent Autopsy Shows "EJ" Was Shot Three Times From Behind
The family of the 21-year-old man killed by a police officer in an Alabama mall says an independent autopsy shows he was shot three times in the back.
"That was wrong. My son was murdered by this officer and that was cowardice," Emantic Fitzgerald Bradford Sr., whose namesake son was shot to death on Thanksgiving night at the Riverchase Galleria mall in Hoover, said at a news conference Monday morning.
The father spoke after attorneys for the family shared results of an independent autopsy that showed Emantic "EJ" Fitzgerald Bradford Jr. was hit in the head, neck and lower back by three bullets allegedly fired at him from behind.
