At the request of 30th Judicial District Attorney General Steve Mulroy, TBI special agents are investigating an officer-involved shooting in which an individual and two officers with the Memphis Police Department were shot.

Preliminary information indicates that just before 7:30 p.m., Memphis police officers responded to a call of an armed individual at a convenience store in the 1200 block of East Raines Road.  Two officers arrived within minutes and encountered the individual outside of the business.  During a brief foot chase along East Raines, for reasons still under investigation, shots were fired and the individual as well as both of the officers sustained gunshot wounds.  All three were transported to an area hospital for treatment.

At this time, this investigation remains active and ongoing.  TBI agents are working to independently determine the series of events leading to the shooting, including collecting evidence and conducting interviews.  Throughout the process, investigative findings will be shared with the District Attorney General for his further review and consideration.  The TBI acts solely as fact-finders in its cases and does not determine whether the actions of an officer were justified in these types of matters.  That decision rests with the District Attorney General requesting TBI’s involvement.

The TBI does not identify the officers involved in these types of incidents and instead refers questions of that nature to their respective department to answer as it sees fit.

Any available updates on this investigation will be posted online at
