ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Erron Brown, the suspect in the Alabama mall shooting, appeared for a court hearing in Fulton County, Georgia on Friday where he waived extradition.
Brown will be sent back to Alabama to face charges in the Riverchase Galleria mall shooting that wounded two people and left another man dead after he was apparently mistaken for the gunman during Black Friday sales, federal officials said.
The case drew wide attention after police in Alabama said an officer had killed the gunman, but then said the dead man was likely not to blame and that the actual shooter remained at large.
Brown, 20, was taken into custody at a home in South Fulton, Georgia, a city about three hours east of Birmingham, according to police and the U.S. Marshals Service.
Brown will be charged with attempted murder and more charges were expected as the investigation continues, the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency said in a statement.
An investigation into the shooting by the officer was also ongoing, it said.
