NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Three teenagers were arrested Thursday afternoon after a manhunt in the Sunset View neighborhood of Donelson.

Police spokeswoman Kris Mumford told News 2 the teens are accused of being possession of a stolen vehicle.

After they were spotted, authorities say a pursuit began in the area of Wilford Drive and McGavock Pike. Metro officers had guns drawn and used both a helicopter in the air and K-9s on the ground.

They ran from the car and then were apprehended in a nearby wooded area off Ridgeland Drive.

Police said during this incident, Pennington Elementary went on lockdown for about an hour.

The teenagers are expected to face multiple charges in juvenile court.

In an unrelated case, Metro police say a fight at Overton High School on Thursday sparked an 11-mile police pursuit through south Nashville, ending only after the teen suspect crashed a stolen car at an Antioch intersection.
