MUSKEGON, Mich. – Chilling new 911 calls obtained by FOX 17 News paint a vivid picture of the events that unfolded February 9th, when two males and two females were shot outside Muskegon Heights High School following a basketball game.

In the audio, dispatchers can be heard trying to calm frantic callers and offer help to several who are tending to those injured. The mother of one of the victims and Muskegon Heights Public School Academy System Superintendent Alena Zachery-Ross are two of the callers.

Officials with both school systems and local law enforcement say they caught wind there may be an attempted act of violence before that day of the game. They attribute an already increased police presence to the quick response the night of the shootings. Since then, all four victims, two of which were students at Muskegon Heights High, have been released from the hospital.

21-year-old Clarence McCaleb has been the only one charged so far in the shootings. McCaleb was arraigned on charges of assault with a dangerous weapon, felony firearm and carrying a concealed weapon.

He was charged as a third-time habitual offender, and faces up to 12 years in prison if convicted.  The Muskegon County Prosecutor's Office says he could face additional charges.
