City residents staged a massive protest resulting in several officers being injured.

At least two journalists were injured, multiple police cars were damaged, a fire station's windows were shattered and a concrete wall outside a business was torn down, he said.

In identifying Webber on Twitter early Thursday, Shelby County Commissioner and mayoral candidate Tami Sawyer said "Every life lost should matter.every single one".

While police support the right of people to demonstrate, Rallings said 'we will not allow any acts of violence'.

Strickland said he's impressed by the "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.

Strickland said he was at a town hall meeting in Hyde Park when he got a message from Police Director Michael Rallings about the shooting around 7 p.m.

The protesters took to the streets after news reports of officers with the United States Marshals Services shooting and killing a man outside a home in north Memphis on Wednesday. Rallings said the officers suffered mostly minor injuries but a few were serious.

At least 24 police officers have been injured in protests over the lethal shooting of a black man in Tennessee Wednesday night. Marshals tried to stop him, but the man reportedly rammed his vehicle into the officer's cruisers several times before jumping out with a weapon. He says a group of protesters gathered and became irate, throwing rocks at officers, and damaging police vehicles and a nearby fire station.

McAlister says marshals opened fired and the suspect died on the scene.

The victim's aunt, Yolanda Holmes, told the Daily Memphian that police claimed he was shooting at an officer but the family were still trying to confirm details. How many times will this be ok?

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

The fugitive, who has not been officially identified, was attempting to leave an area in Memphis's Frayser neighborhood when he was confronted by agents of the U.S. Marshals Service-Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force.

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

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