BLUFF CITY, Tenn. -

A 911 call led police to a meth lab in Bluff City.

It happened Friday when officers responded to a call about a person being shot.

When police arrived at the home on Kentucky Avenue officers say they found a man, possibly on synthetic drugs, claiming he was shot. Police say the man was not shot, but may have been high.

Investigators say when they searched the home they found an active meth lab and arrested the home's owner. A woman at the house is also facing drug chargers after officers say they found drug paraphernalia in her purse.

According to police in Bluff City three people were taken into custody: Jerry Houser, Angelic Counts and Randell Scott Southerland.

We're told Houser owned the home and is facing charges for having a meth lab in close proximity to a school, in this case Bluff City Middle School.
