A Black man killed by police in an Alabama mall in November was shot three times from behind, according to a forensic examination commissioned by the man's family. The finding, announced in a news conference Monday, was seen by the man's family and lawyers as evidence he was running away and posed no threat to the officer who shot him. Emantic Fitzgerald Bradford Jr., 21, was fatally shot in the middle of a panicked crowed at the Riverchase Galleria in Hoover, Alabama, on Nov. 22, as officers responded to reports of gunshots on Thanksgiving night. Witnesses said Bradford, who was legally carrying a handgun, was directing shoppers to safety.
