25 officers injured at scene of Memphis shooting

25 officers injured at scene of Memphis shooting

Shelby County Commissioner and mayoral candidate Tami Sawyer tweeted that Webber had been shot several times in his family's front yard.

The U.S. Marshals Service, an arm of the U.S. Justice Department, arrests fugitives, among other roles. They endured assaults and batteries, rocks and bricks were thrown at them, injuring about 35 law enforcement officers, and no retaliation. No officers were injured in that encounter.

Two journalists were also injured.

TBI later identified the man as 20-year-old Brandon Webber. Webber had multiple warrants out for his arrest.

Protests broke out in the city of Memphis Wednesday night after USA marshals fatally shot a man, leaving 24 police officers and two journalists injured.

U.S. Marshals Service agents fatally shot a young black man in Memphis, Tennessee, during an attempted arrest, triggering overnight clashes with protesters that left at least two dozen police officers injured, officials said on Thursday. The situation then escalated, and officers donned protective riot gear as people threw rocks and bricks.

'I need everyone to stay calm, ' Rallings said. By 11 p.m., officers had used tear gas and most of the crowd dispersed, police director Michael Rallings said.

"Attacks on police and firefighters have become far too common in our nation".

The partnership is the latest in a steady stream for Aurora, which already has deals in place with Volkswagen , Hyundai and Byton. Earlier this year it raised $530 million through a Series B funding round, with Amazon one of its key investors.

News of Webber's death spread quickly as protesters hurled rocks at police, tore down a concrete wall outside a business and smashed the windows of squad cars and a fire station.

At least two dozen police officers were hurt Wednesday while trying to fend off protesters in Memphis, where tensions are high following a fatal shooting by USA marshals. Police cars and a nearby fire station were damaged. Rallings said there are reports of civilians being hurt, and urged anyone who may have injuries to call for help.

Rallings, the police director, implored residents to wait until the TBI finishes its investigation before spreading possible misinformation about the shooting.

According to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, officers with the U.S. Marshal Service's Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force came into contact with Webber, who was wanted on multiple felony warrants, as he was getting into a vehicle in the 2000 block of Durham in Frayser on Wednesday.

According to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, agents attempted to arrest the suspect -who reportedly had multiple felony warrants-- but the man entered a auto and began ramming police vehicles indiscriminately before exiting with a weapon.

The victim's aunt, Yolanda Holmes, told the Daily Memphian that police claimed he was shooting at an officer but the family were still trying to confirm details. It is, as yet, unknown how many shots were fired or how many times the suspect was hit.

Separately, Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee said through a spokesman that the shooting would be fulling investigated. Tensions between police and black activists have been high in recent years in Memphis following several police-involved shootings.
