Several law enforcement officers in Memphis were injured during a protest that began after federal authorities killed a man they were attempting to arrest Wednesday, officials said. A driver wanted on multiple felony warrants attempted to ram law enforcement vehicles when officers with a regional U.S. Marshals Service fugitive task force attempted to arrest him in Memphis' Frayser community at about 7 p.m., Tennessee Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Keli McAlister said. The man then got out of the vehicle with a weapon, according to McAlister. "The officers fired, striking and killing the individual," she said. No officers were injured in the incident, she said. The man was later identified as Brandon Webber, 20, state law enforcement officials told NBC affiliate WMC-TV.
