    MEMPHIS, Tennessee — Dozens of officers from multiple agencies were on scene of an officer-involved shooting in North Memphis Wednesday evening.

    The scene is in the 2000 block of Durham involving — the Frayser neighborhood.

    It was unclear what led up to the shooting or how many people were shot. The officers involved were from the Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force — part of the US Marshal Service.

    Following the shooting, large crowds swarmed the area and there were reports of rocks being thrown at officers as well as stores being looted.

    mages from local media showed police standing shoulder-to-shoulder across a street to prevent the crowd from entering the crime scene. The officers were not seen in riot gear.

    Update.

    This is the victim in the police involved shooting



    His name is Brandon D. Webber, He was shot when marshals were serving a warrant and he allegedly “pulled a rifle,” according to local news reports.

    Officials have not said that Webber is dead. However, many memorials appeared on his Facebook page Wednesday night.

    FB Link before Police Lock it.

    Heavy rain and a strong police presence seems to have broken up rioters. But this remains a highly tense situation in the area and further protest and riots could happen.

    SR and I stayed at a motel on the road near Graceland one time. It was the first and last time we stayed anywhere near there. My son, who travels there for business, gave us the lecture. We weren't familiar with the area. We got out of there pretty quickly in the am and didn't stray out of the parking lot when walking the dogs. The parking lot was fenced, gated and locked.
