Alabama mall shooting suspect seeks lower bond

December 18, 2018 03:21 PM

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — A man charged in the shooting that led to a police killing of a black man in an Alabama shopping mall on Thanksgiving is asking a judge to lower his bond.


An attorney for 20-year-old Erron Brown filed a request to reduce his bail from $125,000 to $60,000. A motion filed Monday says Brown has no felony convictions and would abide by an electronic monitoring system.

Prosecutors haven't responded, but a judge set a hearing for Jan. 17.

Brown is jailed on an attempted murder charge in the wounding of a teenager who was shot at a mall near Birmingham.

An officer who heard the gunfire shot and killed 21-year-old Emantic "EJ" Bradford Jr., apparently believing he was the shooting suspect.

Protesters are seeking the arrest of the still-unidentified officer.
