BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Organizers say they’re redirecting demonstrations against the police killing of a black man at an Alabama shopping mall on Thanksgiving.
Leaders announced Wednesday that demonstrations targeting the city where the shooting occurred will now focus on state officials who are investigating the shooting death of Emantic “EJ” Bradford Jr.
They’re promising protests at the homes and offices of Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall and the head of the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency. Marshall’s office had no immediate comment.
The change follows a meeting in which protest spokesman Iva Williams says officials in the city of Hoover agreed to work toward several requests made by demonstrators.
