Shelby County Commissioner Tami Sawyer identified the fugitive who was killed, but the man was not named by authorities. According to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, the man resisted arrest and "reportedly rammed his vehicle into the officers' vehicles multiple times before exiting with a weapon".

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said on Twitter that its agents were on the scene of a shooting in Memphis on Wednesday night.

"This is my district".

The Memphis Police Department said its officers received a call for assistance from the U.S. Marshals Service, but no police officer was involved in the fatal shooting. When officers attempted to prevent him from fleeing in a vehicle, the man rammed his auto into their vehicles before getting out of his vehicle with a weapon.

He was shot and killed by officers.

Around 25 officers were hurt, with most suffering only light injuries.

Passion Anderson, a 34-year-old student, drove her 13-year-old son to the scene early Thursday, after protesters had gone and the scene had calmed down.

"Multiple police cars were vandalized", Strickland said according to the statement.

Police eventually fired tear gas into the area, which dispersed the crowd.

As I monitored tonight's fatal shooting involving the US Marshal's, I was proud of our first responders.

Memphis police officers were called in to help with crowd control as word of the shooting spread on social media. Family members confirmed to the Daily Memphian that 21-year-old Webber died.

Webber was allegedly shot up to 20 times in his family's front yard, according to his cousin Demetrick Skinner, the Daily Memphian reported. 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. "If you witnessed acts of violence or vandalism, you need to call police".

"If your home or vehicle was vandalised during these acts, you need to call police".

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

"Let me be clear - the aggression shown towards our officers and deputies tonight was unwarranted", the mayor said. She grew up in Memphis, but left to OH before moving in November to the Frayser neighborhood, a mostly low- to middle-income area north of downtown.

She said she anxious about her son's safety every day in Memphis which struggles with crime and gang activity. 'I fear for him all the time'.
