MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Dyersburg police have arrested multiple suspects after three separate shootings occurred within several hours on Saturday.

Five adults and three juveniles were taken into custody and several weapons were seized.

It started on Saturday around 7 p.m. when a shooting was reported on Moody Drive. Shortly after, police located and arrested three suspects, ages 15, 17, and 18.

Police say 18-year-old Titus Johnson was in possession of a loaded handgun at the time of the arrest. Over 30 grams of marijuana and another handgun were located inside the vehicle that the teens were occupying.

The second shooting happened around 9:30 p.m. when police heard gunshots near Forrest Street. Police also saw a vehicle fleeing the area, causing officers to initiate a traffic stop.

The driver continued to flee from officers until losing control of the vehicle at US 51 by-pass and Pioneer Road, according to police.

Officers say they located two AR-style rifles, a .45 caliber handgun, and multiple shell casings inside the vehicle.

Four arrests were made at that scene.
