According to the Muskegon Police Department, Spears was discovered by officers with a gunshot wound to the torso. According to reports, the individual passed away at the location of the incident.

In this particular case, the victim is a 14-year-old, a fact that is undeniably sorrowful and heartbreaking. The death of someone so young is always a tragic event. According to HIlson, “it makes it even worse in this fashion.”

A shooting occurred in close proximity to Muskegon High School. During the school’s secure mode, a student attempted to enter the campus and was approached by a school resource officer. A student was detained after being found in possession of a gun.

According to Hilson, one of the three individuals being charged has been identified as a student. However, Hilson did not disclose the specific charges that the student is facing.
