Four people were shot at Muskegon Heights High School on Tuesday night. A sheriff’s deputy shot the alleged shooter. All four victims were said to have non-life threating injuries, according to interim Muskegon County Heights Police Chief, Dr. Joseph E. Thomas, Jr. Two males and two females were taken to Mercy Health Hackley Campus.
Early indications are the incident seemed to be driven by a dispute in Grand Rapids last week.
Thomas said they knew of a potential situation and alerted the Muskegon County Sheriff’s Office and the Muskegon Heights Police Department to be on hand to keep the unwanted individuals out. After the individuals were kept out they moved to a nearby football field where the shots were fired.
All buildings within the Muskegon Heights Public School Academy System will be closed Wednesday and counselors will be on hand.
