It was shown in arXiv:1410.7168 that compactifying D = 6, N= (1 0) ungauged supergravity coupled to a single tensor multiplet on S 3 one gets a particular D = 3, N= 4 gauged supergravity which is a consistent reduction. We construct two supersymmetric black string solutions in this 3-dimensional model with one and two active scalars respectively. Uplifting the first, one gets a dyonic string solution in D = 6 that has been known for a long time. Whereas, uplifting the second solution, one finds a very interesting configuration where magnetic strings are located uniformly on a circle in a plane within the 4-dimensional flat transverse space and electric strings are distributed homogeneously inside this circle. Both solutions have AdS 3 × S 3 limits.
