Tennessee shooting involving task force under investigation

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Authorities in Tennessee are investigating a shooting involving members of a regional fugitive task force.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said on Twitter that its agents were on the scene of a shooting in Memphis on Wednesday night.

The state police agency says the shooting involves the Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force, which includes the U.S. Marshals Service and other law enforcement agencies.

Shelby County Commissioner Tami Sawyer said on her Twitter page that Brandon Webber “was shot 16-20 times in his family’s front yard.” It was not immediately clear where she got that information.

No Memphis police officers were involved in the shooting.

Memphis Police Department said on its Twitter page that several officers received minor injuries due to individuals throwing rocks and bricks.
