Brandon Webber, 20, was shot and killed June 12 by U.S. Marshals who were attempting to arrest him in a robbery in Shelby County. They were called because the warrant was from another state: Mississippi. That shooting is under investigation by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.
The incident set off violent protests in the Frayser neighborhood that injured several Memphis Police officers protecting the scene and made national headlines.
DeSoto County authorities say Webber drove to Hernando, Mississippi to buy a car June 3, then shot the seller and took the car during a test drive.
