MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The TBI’s findings in the Jonathan Bratcher case have been made public. The news comes a week after a judge granted District Attorney Amy Weirich’s request to put the files up on their website. Under state law, TBI investigations are sealed. Officers Clement Marks and Alexander Fleites shot and killed the 32-year-old back in January after he opened fire during a foot chase. Bratcher jumped from a car police were pursuing off Mississippi Boulevard and South Parkway East. They said he fired at least one shot at officers before they returned fire. WREG obtained cell phone video showing the moments after the shooting where you can see officers performing CPR on Bratcher. At one point, they push a dark object away from him. Looking at the video, it’s difficult to tell what that object is. Documents uncovered by WREG show he had a criminal record and served time in prison. Weirich’s office said the officers involved in the shooting would not face criminal charges because their actions were justified. To view the files click here.
