At Least 24 Memphis Police Officers Hurt In Protests After Deadly Shooting

At Least 24 Memphis Police Officers Hurt In Protests After Deadly Shooting

The U.S. Marshals Service, an arm of the U.S. Justice Department, arrests fugitives, among other roles. Some protesters hurled bottles, rocks and bricks, police said.

"No officers were injured" in that initial encounter, according to the TBI. He said at least two journalists were injured and property was damaged. Family members confirmed to the Daily Memphian that the 21-year-old Webber died.

The TBI says Webber was shot by federal marshals who were trying to arrest him on multiple felony warrants Wednesday evening.

At least 24 police officers were injured in Memphis, Tenn., in violent clashes with protesters, who took to the streets following the shooting death of a man killed by U.S. Marshals during an attempted arrest, authorities said on Thursday.

The clash came after officers with the US Marshals Service shot and killed a man in north Memphis, Strickland said. The situation then escalated, and officers donned protective riot gear as people threw rocks and bricks.

Strickland said multiple police cars were also vandalized, a concrete wall outside a business was torn down and windows were broken at a local fire station. Six were taken to hospital.

The tense scene raised the possibility of more disturbances in the predominantly black city, evoking memories of a string of sometimes violent protests against police brutality that broke out in other cities in recent years.

But he lauded the composure of the officers as they became targets of attack.

Rather than make predictions about his tally of goals next season, Jovic simply wants to show the Madrid fans what he can do. However, if he is to leave the club this summer then he wants to move somewhere where he's made to feel important.

Strickland said he's impressed by the "professionalism and incredible restraint as they endured concrete rocks being thrown at them and people spitting at them".

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 United States marshals.

According to NBC News, roughly 300 people were involved in the protest, which reportedly disbanded at roughly 10 p.m. Police used tear gas to try to get the protesters to disperse. Rallings said there are reports of civilians being hurt, and urged anyone who may have injuries to call for help.

The police director implored residents to wait until the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, or TBI, finishes its investigation. Marshals saw the man get into a vehicle and then proceed to ram police vehicles several times before exiting with a weapon, McAlister said.

Leslie Earhart, a TBI spokeswoman, declined to identify the type of weapon Webber was reported to have had and whether Webber's father and neighbors were correct when they said Webber had been shot between 16 and 20 times.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has launched an investigation after a deadly officer-involved shooting in the 2000 block of Durham in Frayser.

Police appealed for calm in a tense Memphis neighborhood Thursday where about 35 officers were injured by a rock-throwing crowd following a black man's shooting death by USA marshals on a fugitive task force.
