ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Desmond Muff was one of four men arrested for firing a shot in front of Monroe High School in October of last year.

School Police say the shooters are gang members, and Muff, 21 at the time, fired the shot.

No one was hit by the .45 caliber bullet.

Monday, a judge sentenced Muff to seven years to be served in prison, and another 23 on probation.

19 year old Lentavious Morgan was the gun owner and the driver of the car the four were in. 21 year old Akeem Hines and 19 year William Davis are all charged with aggravated assault.

School Police say the four drove up and down Lippitt Drive past the school several times, when they stopped and started to argue with several students.

Dougherty County School Police Assistant Chief J. C. Phillips said "They got surrounded, out numbered is what it is. So to kind of fend them off is whey they fired the round."

Two hours after the shooting the four were arrested on Colquitt Avenue, where Investigators found the gun and marijuana. Police say the four suspects are members of the Southside Bloods, but and gang charges are pending as the investigation continues.
