Names of children killed in fire are released

BROWNSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Police in Brownsville say a 17-year-old boy has been fatally shot in an exchange of gunfire.

The Jackson Sun reported Jamal Sain of Whiteville died over the weekend at the Regional Medical Center in Memphis after being shot in Brownsville.

The shooting occurred Friday night. Police were called to a convenience store where Sain had been driven. Officers arrested another 17-year-old who was in the car with Sain, charging him with attempted first-degree murder, use of a firearm during the commission of a felony and possession of a weapon with the intent to go armed.

Brownsville police Lt. Chuck Willis said additional suspects were being questioned.

Police said they don't know why the teens -- both from Hardeman County -- were in Brownsville on Friday night.
