eh, after ME release their findings the B'ham police said wooops... er 'regret our media release was not 'totally' accurate ~ ya think!

The guy shot by police at an Alabama mall Thanksgiving night wasn't really an alleged gunman, AL.com reports. The Jefferson County Coroner's Office released a statement Friday saying police actually shot and killed Emantic Fitzgerald Bradford Jr., 21, who was carrying a gun as he fled the scene of a multiple shooting at Riverchase Galleria in the Birmingham suburb of Hoover. Police Capt. Gregg Rector says they don't normally release information during an investigation, but this is an exception.

"New evidence now suggests that while Mr. Bradford may have been involved in some aspect of the altercation, he likely did not fire the rounds that injured the 18-year-old victim," says Rector, per the AP. Police add that they "regret that our initial media release was not totally accurate." At least one gunman apparently remains at large.
