The funeral service for 21-year-old Emantic "EJ" Bradford Jr. has finished at the Boutwell Auditorium in Birmingham.
Bradford was fatally shot at the Riverchase Galleria on Thanksgiving night by a Hoover police officer responding to reports of gunfire. Authorities inaccurately identified Bradford as the suspected shooter following the a mall shooting that left an 18-year-old and 12-year-old injured.
Hoover city officials met with family members earlier this week and apologized for inaccurately identifying Bradford as the shooter and offered condolences and prayers for the family's loss.
A suspect in the shooting, 20-year-old Erron Brown, was taken into custody in Fulton County, Georgia before noon Thursday.
