Hear the radio version of this story. The Frayser community in Memphis is dealing with the aftermath of Brandon Webber’s fatal shooting. The 20-year-old black man was killed by U.S. marshals who were attempting to arrest him on outstanding felony warrants. But it was the violent protest that followed that put the community in the national spotlight.

On Wednesday, U.S. Marshals shot and killed 20-year-old Brandon Webber in the North Memphis community of Frayser. The Marshals were carrying out arrest warrants for Webber, who was a suspect in a robbery and shooting in Hernando, MS.
Webber's death sparked protests and led to many questions.
With the toll of a church bell, around 200 people cheered when his lanky likeness was finally revealed on Wednesday. The bronze sculpture of a young Johnny Cash with a guitar newly stands in front of 999 Cooper Street, near the now-vacant Galloway Methodist Church. It was there, in 1954, that Cash had his first public performance, a fundraiser for a women's bible study.
65 years later, Cash's grandson Thomas Gabriel, and his nephew Roy Cash, a resident of Collierville, were on hand for the dedication.
After a violent clash between protesters and Memphis police Wednesday night, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is looking into the shooting that precipitated the stand off. U.S. Marshals killed a 20-year-old Memphis man while attempting to arrest him in the Frayser neighborhood.

Two neighborhoods in Shelby County have been identified as "food deserts" -- areas where residents have to travel up to a mile just to buy groceries. While that isn't a problem for many people, these neighborhoods -- in South Memphis and Frayser -- also have high poverty rates and residents who rely on public transportation.
