Memphis mayor: 6 officers treated at hospital

TBI agents investigating Frayser shooting involving US Marshals

Shelby County Commissioner Tami Sawyer was among the first officials to identify the slain man publicly.

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.

"Don't judge Frayser without asking a community how it feels to mourn their youth over and over again", she wrote on Twitter.

He applauded police for their "incredible restraint as they endured concrete rocks being thrown at them and people spitting at them", adding that "the aggression shown towards our officers and deputies tonight was unwarranted".

What authorities are saying: The Tennessee Bureau of Investigations said authorities from the US Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force encountered a male wanted on multiple warrants. They saw the man get into a vehicle and she says the he proceeded to ram police vehicles with his auto multiple times and then he exited the auto with a weapon. At least 24 officers and deputies were injured--6 were taken to the hospital. "No officers were injured". TBI said it is still reviewing evidence and will share its findings with the district attorney general.

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


I was in Frayser tonight because Brandon Webber was shot 16-20 times in his family's front yard on the same day as the Pulse nightclub shooting anniversary and on the same day that the DA chose not to charge another police officer for murdering a civilian.

Police director Michael Rallings said Thursday morning at a news conference that after the shooting of a suspect being sought for felony warrants a group of protesters gathered and became irate, throwing rocks at officers and causing damage to police vehicles and a nearby fire station.

As is our policy, the TBI does not identify the officers involved in these types of incidents and instead refers questions of that nature to their respective department. Within hours, however, violence broke out and police deployed riot shields.

"A concrete wall outside a business was torn down".

She grew up in Memphis and recently moved back to the Frayser neighborhood, a mostly low- to middle-income area with modest single-family homes and apartments.

"I just want him to see this, know what's going on, to be conscious", she said.
