Bradford shooting protest

Demonstrators on Wednesday banged on the front door at the office of Attorney General Steve Marshall in Montgomery. They shouted Bradford's name and demanded to speak with Marshall.

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Two demonstrators have been arrested outside the Alabama attorney general's office during a protest over the 2018 shooting death of a black man at a shopping mall.

Law enforcement officers on Wednesday afternoon led two women away in handcuffs after a demonstration over the state's decision to clear a police officer in the shooting death of Emantic "EJ" Bradford Jr.

Bradford was killed Thanksgiving night by a police officer responding to a shooting at a shopping mall in the Birmingham suburb of Hoover.

Demonstrators on Wednesday banged on the front door at the office of Attorney General Steve Marshall in Montgomery. They shouted Bradford's name and demanded to speak with Marshall.

Most of the protesters left after a state law enforcement officer read an order to disperse. The two women were arrested on disorderly conduct charges after they returned. One of the women said they returned to get signs and other property that were left behind.
