MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A crime-ridden South Memphis intersection has become a target for local and federal law enforcement, leading to multiple arrests and seizures of drugs and weapons, city and police leaders said Tuesday.

Police Chief CJ Davis said it has become a hub for criminal activity, with groups of gang members, sometimes as large as 20, taking over the streets with high-powered weapons.

Davis said police have responded to 340 calls in the area over the past three years.
