Brandon Webber, 21, was shot and killed by U.S. Marshals on Wednesday evening in Memphis after he allegedly crashed his vehicle into officer's cars, Washington Post reported.

That man was Webber, according to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, which is investigating the case.

Armed officers and an angry crowd faced off late Wednesday night after reports that at least one man was fatally shot by authorities in a working-class north Memphis neighborhood.

"This is my district".

"I'm impressed by their professionalism and incredible restraint as they endured concrete rocks being thrown at them and people spitting at them", the mayor tweeted.

The shooting happened around 7 p.m. Authorities said the Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force of the U.S. Marshal Service was involved.

The man allegedly tried to ram his vehicle into officers before emerging with a weapon, police say, and was then shot.

At least 24 officers and deputies were injured--6 were taken to the hospital.

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

Police were called to the area for crowd control after news of the shooting circulated online.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said Thursday that it is investigating the shooting at the request of District Attorney General Amy Weirich.

This remains an active and ongoing investigation, as TBI Special Agents and Forensic Scientists continue to work to gather any and all relevant interviews and evidence. "I need everyone to stay calm", Rallings said.

In one instance captured on social media, protesters used a chair to smash out the back window of a police vehicle. "The windows were broken out at fire station 31", Strickland says on Facebook.

"Let me be clear-the aggression shown towards our officers and deputies tonight was unwarranted", Strickland's statement read. She said she anxious about her son's safety every day in Memphis as it struggles with crime and gang activity.

"Every time I turned around, I saw another person with tears in their eyes, furious at another life lost", Demster said.
