A suspect has been arrested in connection to the Alabama shooting at Riverchase Galleria mall, making his way to Georgia before he was finally apprehended by police.
20-year-old Erron Brown was discovered and captured near South Fulton earlier this morning, in connection to the chaotic Thanksgiving shooting that left two wounded and one dead in Hoover, Alabama.
According to WDHN, the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency issued a warrant in Brown’s name for the attempted murder of 18-year-old Brian X. Wilson.
Brown’s alleged actions set off the potentially accidental shooting of 21-year-old Emantic “Li Glock” Bradford, who was targeted by an off-duty officer after he was spotted in the crowd, brandishing a handgun.
The Hoover Sun reported that Hoover city officials have asked the ALEA to allow the release the limited information currently compiled in regards to the shooting of Bradford, noting that HPD Chief Nick Derzismay may prematurely release the information if his request goes unanswered.
It is unknown if the “information” mentioned will include body camera footage, which is currently in the ALEA’s possession.
Hoover City Councilman Derrick Murphy was at the mall when shots rang out on Thanksgiving night. During the event, he texted his wife.
“I was terrified. I prayed because that’s all I could do,” he said.
Initially, police claimed Bradford was the shooter, but later redacted the statement. Later, police said that while Bradford may have been involved in the altercation, he did not fire any shots.
The investigation is ongoing.
