Mall bans Alabama mall shooting protest organizer

HOOVER, Ala. (AP) — A shopping mall in Alabama has banned a man who has organized protests of the shooting of a man by police last month.

News outlets reported Riverchase Galleria in Hoover has banned 25-year-old Carlos Chaverst Jr. from visiting for one year. Police issued a warning for Chaverest on Sunday night and told him he would be arrested if he returns to the property.

Activists have been protesting the shooting death of 21-year-old Emantic Bradford Jr., who authorities mistook for the suspect in a shopping mall shooting on Thanksgiving night. A police officer who heard the initial shots fatally wounded Bradford moments later after seeing him with a gun.

Chaverest said Sunday night the trespass warning is part of what he called the “overall cover-up” of what happened to Bradford.
