(CNN) —  

A suspect in a Thanksgiving night Alabama mall shooting – which authorities say led a police officer to kill someone who likely wasn’t the shooter – waived his right Friday to fight extradition from neighboring Georgia.

“Yes, ma’am,” Erron Martez Dequan Brown told a judge in a court in Atlanta’s Fulton County on Friday morning, when asked whether he wanted to waive his extradition hearing.

Brown, 20, was arrested Thursday at a relative’s home in Fairburn, Georgia, a week after a shooting at Riverchase Galleria Mall in the Alabama city of Hoover, a suburb of Birmingham.

Brown faces one count of attempted murder in the shooting.

Authorities say they now believe Brown shot 18-year-old Brian Xavier Wilson at the mall before fleeing. Wilson and a 12-year-old girl who was hit by a stray bullet are recovering from their injuries.

Brown faces one count of attempted murder in the Thanksgiving night shooting at Riverchase Galleria Mall, an upscale shopping center in the Birmingham suburb of Hoover.

First, Hoover police said a 21-year-old suspect – later identified as Bradford – shot and wounded an 18-year-old man and a 12-year-old innocent bystander.

Then they said Bradford had a gun in his hand, but didn’t say that he was threatening anyone with it. (The Bradford family’s attorney said the young man had a legal permit to carry a weapon.)

All this has led to growing accusations of racial profiling – Bradford was black – and demands for answers. But the case has been turned over to the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency (ALEA), which said Wednesday that it will “not release information concerning pending criminal investigations.”

Bradford’s family and their attorney allege the police officer wrongfully shot him, and did so without warning. Bradford had a concealed-weapon permit, they say.

All this has led to growing accusations of racial profiling and demands for answers. But the case has been turned over to the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency (ALEA), which said Wednesday that it will “not release information concerning pending criminal investigations.”

Bradford’s funeral will be held on Saturday at 10 a.m. at the Boutwell Auditorium in Birmingham, according to his online obituary. He is scheduled to be buried in Valhalla Cemetery in Birmingham.

The attempted murder charge

Brown’s charge of attempted murder relates to Wilson’s shooting.

“Additional charges are expected as the investigation progresses,” ALEA said.

It’s not clear what relation, if any, the suspect has to Wilson or to Bradford.
