Memphis mayor: 6 officers treated at hospital

Protesters take to the streets in Memphis after an officer-involved shooting

"At least 24 officers and deputies were injured-6 were taken to the hospital", said Democratic Memphis Mayor Jim Strickland in a statement.

"No officers were injured" in that initial encounter, according to the TBI. Multiple police cars were vandalized, the windows at a nearby fire station were shattered and a concrete wall outside a local business was torn down, according to Memphis Mayor Jim Strickland.

The violent clashes broke out after Brandon Webber was shot and killed by officers on Wednesday as they tried to arrest him for outstanding felony warrants outside his home in Frayser in North Memphis.

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

He said at a news conference on Thursday morning that in the course of the unrest he was impressed by law enforcement officers' "professionalism and incredible restraint as they endured concrete rocks being thrown at them and people spitting at them".

Images from the scene showed officers using shields to deflect projectiles. Rallings said the officers suffered mostly minor injuries but a few were serious. Two journalists were also injured in the chaos and three people were arrested.

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

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.

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. While attempting to arrest him, he rammed his vehicle into the officer's vehicles, then exited the vehicle with a weapon.

"My message tonight is we should all wait and make sure that we know exactly what happened before we spread misinformation or we jump to conclusions", said Rallings.

McAlister did not say how many marshals fired or how many times the man was shot.

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

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said its agents were on the scene of a shooting involving a regional anti-crime task force. Tensions between police and black activists have been high in recent years in Memphis following several police-involved shootings.

The TBI identified the dead man on Thursday as 20-year-old Brandon Webber.

Authorities confirmed at least 25 officers received some sort of injury and they were forced to set up a triage unit on the scene for the officers who had been hurt.
