Brandon D. Webber was the man shot in an incident involving U.S. Marshals June 12 in Memphis, according to a mayoral candidate, widespread social media memorial posts, and the Commercial Appeal.

Webber was shot when marshals were serving a warrant in Frayser, and he allegedly “pulled a rifle,” according to local news reports. The shooting occurred in the 2000 block of Durham in Memphis and involved the Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force, a U.S. Marshal Service, at about 7 p.m. local time, officials said.

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

Frayser is a community in North Memphis, Tennessee.

Several police officers and reporters suffered minor injuries on the scene. Local reporters said a crowd threw rocks at a group of Memphis Police officers, who were on the scene to assist with traffic control. They were not involved with the shooting. Other reporters said they heard gunfire. One reporter captured a video of two men smashing a Memphis police car with a chair.
