On Wednesday night in the Frayser neighborhood of Memphis, U.S. Marshals Service officers shot and killed 20-year-old Brandon Webber, a suspect with multiple warrants related to a June 3 shooting and car-jacking in Hernando, Mississippi, as he attempted to evade arrest. Afterward, as a crowd gathered, Memphis police and Shelby County deputies then got into riot gear. The crowd began to throw rocks and smash squad car windows, injuring 35 officers, six of whom were transported to the hospital, the worst having a broken shoulder. Officers taped off several blocks in the Frayser neighborhood north of downtown and arrested three people. By 11 p.m., officers had used tear gas and most of the crowd dispersed.
