Officers from the Memphis Police Department and other agencies responded Wednesday evening to crowd unrest in the city’s Frayser neighborhood, reports said.

The Commercial Appeal of Memphis reported that a “tense standoff” developed between law enforcement and residents after a shooting in the Frayser neighborhood.

Law enforcement agencies would not disclose the victim’s identity or medical condition, but two local politicians identified the victim as Brandon Webber and said that he had died, the newspaper reported.

The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office and the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) also responded, FOX 13 reported.

The NAACP tweeted that the organization was monitoring events in the city.

The crowd began to disperse around 10 p.m., the Commercial Appeal reported.
