MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Authorities in Tennessee are investigating a shooting involving members of a regional fugitive task force.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said on Twitter that its agents were on the scene of a shooting in Memphis on Wednesday night.

The state police agency says the shooting involves the Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force, which includes the U.S. Marshals Service and other law enforcement agencies.

It was not immediately clear if there were any injuries or deaths associated with the shooting. No Memphis police officers were involved in the shooting.
