Clement Marks, 29, and Alexander Fleites, 26, have been identified as the two officers involved the killing of Jonathan Bratcher at 888 Kerr on Jan. 27. Both of these officers have been relieved of duty as the TBI continues its investigation.



According to the Commercial Appeal,

"The incident began about 2:30 p.m. that Wednesday when officers in two cars tried to stop a Chevy Impala for a traffic violation. The driver fled and crashed into a curb by St. Andrew A.M.E. Church at 867 S. Parkway. Two men in the car ran in separate directions and police chased on foot"

According to eyewitness, Bratcher pointed a weapon and open fire at the officers which prompted the cops to fire back. Bratcher collapsed and died behind a church building after the shooting.
