BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — A man charged in a shooting at an Alabama shopping mall on Thanksgiving is asking to see police video of the entire incident, which ended with police shooting and killing another man.

An attorney for Erron Brown, 20, of Bessemer made the request in a court document filed late Tuesday.

The request came as protesters and relatives of the man killed by police, 21-year-old Emantic "EJ" Brown Jr., continue asking to see any video of the confrontation.

Citing a continuing investigation, authorities have refused to release video publicly or show it to Bradford's family. Prosecutors yet to respond to the new request by Brown's attorney, Charles Salvagio, who scheduled a news conference for Wednesday to discuss the case.

Police first blamed Bradford for a shooting that left two people wounded at a suburban mall. They then backtracked and arrested Brown after a manhunt.

Brown's lawyer said he is not guilty. Bond is set at $125,000 for Brown, who was arrested last week near Atlanta.

Bradford died of three gunshot wounds to the back of his head, neck and torso, according to a forensic report commissioned by his family. Authorities have said an unnamed officer shot him after seeing Bradford with a gun, which relatives say he had a permit to carry legally.

Demonstrations have been held almost daily since Bradford's death. On Tuesday night, protesters briefly shut down a portion of Interstate 459 in Hoover near the Riverchase Galleria, the mall where Bradford was killed.
