MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Memphis police are asking for help identifying five suspects in the violent protest after a deadly shooting last month involving U.S. marshals.

On June 12, a U.S. marshal task force shot and killed Brandon Webber who was wanted for shooting a man five times and stealing his car. Investigators say Webber rammed marshals’ vehicles with the stolen car and got out with a gun before they opened fire.
