Three female juveniles have been charged with auto theft, fleeing the scene of a crash and running from police.

Officers with the Metro Nashville Police Department were first called to the area of 12th Avenue South and Horton Avenue after reports of shots fired in the area Monday afternoon.

While responding to the call, police came across a black GMC Envoy that had somehow driven up into a front yard at Edgehill Avenue and 14th Avenue South.

The vehicle caused damage to a brick wall before hitting a power pole. The three suspects were seen jumping from the SUV and fleeing the scene.

Police were able to locate all three girls and take them into custody.

The SUV was reported stolen near 2nd Avenue and Lafayette. It sustained heavy front-end damage in the crash.

The identities of the suspects were not released. 

It was not clear if police discovered anything suspicious with the original call for shots fired.
