(KUTV) Authorities in Sandy released recordings Monday of the emergency calls reporting several people were shot on Alta Canyon Road last week.

Memorez Rackley and her 6-year-old son, Jase, were killed. Two other children were shot and the alleged shooter, Jeremy Patterson, 32, shot himself and died at the scene.

Emergency responders arrived to the scene near Brookwood Elementary School and found the victims in the middle of the road.

The 911 calls, which are included below, or here for mobile readers, have been redacted by 2News to eliminate any personal information that might identify the caller. None of the calls came from the victims of the shooting.

According to Sandy Police, Memorez Rackley had an unspecified relationship with Patterson and there was a verbal dispute that preceded the shooting.

Sgt. Jason Nielsen said Rackley and her children were picked up by a female Good Samaritan who saw her arguing with Patterson outside the elementary school. Patterson rammed the Good Samaritan’s car and then shot the victims, according to police.

A Rackley Family spokesperson said Myles Rackley, 11, was "slowly recovering" in the hospital. A banner was erected on a fence at Brookwood Elementary School that reads “We Love U Myles.”

Authorities said Memorez Rackley previously contacted Sandy Police to report harassment from Patterson. 2News has also requested copies of the police report from that incident.

This is a developing story, relevant updates will be posted as they become available.
