Star-Telegram - - News -

Au­thor­i­ties on Thurs­day ar­rested a sus­pect in a Thanks­giv­ing shoot­ing that spread panic at Alabama’s largest shop­ping mall, but pro­test­ers said they would con­tinue demon­stra­tions over the po­lice killing of an­other black man who was ini­tially be­lieved to be the shooter.

Er­ron Martez De­quan Brown, 20, of Besse­mer was cap­tured in Ge­or­gia at a rel­a­tive’s home south of At­lanta, au­thor­i­ties said.

The Alabama Law En­force­ment Agency said Brown was charged in the shoot­ing of Brian Xavier Wil­son, 18, of Birm­ing­ham, who was wounded at the River­chase Gal­le­ria in Hoover.
