Jackson to Speak at Bradford Funeral

The Rev. Jesse Jackson will deliver the eulogy at the funeral for a man shot and killed by Hoover police, the family announced Wednesday.  Emantic "EJ" Bradford, Jr., 21, was shot by an officer responding to gunfire at the Riverchase Galleria Thanksgiving night.  The gunfire wounded two people on the mall's second level outside the Footaction shoe store.    Police say Bradford had a gun in his hand at the time, but later determined the shots were fired by a gunman who remains large.  The funeral was scheduled for 10 a.m. Saturday,  at Boutwell Auditorium.
