MEMPHIS, TN -
(WMC-TV) – Mid-South clergymen are rallying around Memphis Police Director Toney Armstrong and Mayor A C Wharton.
The emotional show of support follows a string of controversial incidents involving the Memphis Police Department, including the deadly shooting of a 15-year-old boy.
MPD Director Toney Armstrong walked back into City Hall without commenting about an event that took place just seconds earlier. Dozens of ministers reached out to Armstrong with handshakes and hugs of support.
"We just want to reinforce publicly and verbally our support to him and well as to the mayor," said Reverend Donald Johnson.
The ministers prayed for Director Armstrong less than 24 hours after Mayor Wharton announced that the TBI would be handling the investigation into MPD procedures and the death of Justin Thompson.
Director Toney Armstrong requested the TBI investigation after an off duty police officer shot the 15-year old Monday night.
"So it's been our aim to bring a level of peace and harmony in this city," said Reverend Johnson.
Ministers say they're also praying for the slain teenager and his family.
"Number one we realize that a mother has lost a child in that act and our support is for that mother and her family and we will do whatever we can to help in that area," said Johnson.
The ministers say are all members of the police department's clergy academy.
Ministers say they met outside City Hall to send the message that they feel the police director and mayor are doing a good job and deserve the support of the community.
