Police in Memphis, Tenn. were confronted by a large crowd of demonstrators late Wednesday after a young black man was reportedly killed by officers in his family's front yard.
The Associated Press reported that three people were arrested following a night of demonstrations in which as many as 25 officers were injured, some of whom were reportedly struck by rocks thrown by the crowd.
A spokeswoman for the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) told reporters that the shooting victim, identified in news reports as 21-year-old Brandon Webber, was killed by officers after allegedly striking a police fugitive task force vehicle with his car and exiting his vehicle with a weapon.
"While attempting to stop the individual," a TBI statement obtained by the Daily Memphian reads. "he reportedly rammed his vehicle into the officers’ vehicles multiple times before exiting with a weapon. The officers fired striking and killing the individual. No officers were injured."
