JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) -- Jackson Police have arrested nine juveniles on weapons charges after finding a pistol in a vehicle with them.

The Jackson Sun reported police were investigating a noise complaint at a motel late Saturday when they heard about seven shots fired nearby. Officers saw a silver sport utility vehicle quickly leaving the area and stopped it.
