MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - There was a police presence in Hampstead due to a protest on Chiltern Street Sunday evening.

The protest was related to a Thanksgiving Day officer-involved shooting at the Riverchase Galleria in Hoover, which left 21-year-old Emantic Bradford Jr. dead. Alabama Attorney General Steve Marshall’s office recently took over the investigation into Bradford’s death.

According to protesters, they were in Hampstead because they say that’s where the attorney general lives. We reached out to the Attorney General’s Office, which has no comment.

Montgomery Police Sgt. David Hicks said officers responded to the 5000 block of Chiltern Street in reference to a crowd gathering in front of a private residence, and the crowd peacefully dispersed. No arrests were made.
