CLOVIS, N.M. (AP) - Police in Clovis, New Mexico, have released 911 calls from a shooting at a public library last month that left two dead and four others wounded.

Media outlets report that the calls include pleas for help. Some callers were taking cover in an office or closet during the Aug. 28 attack. Dispatchers offered advice and reassurances that help was on the way.

An indictment issued Sept. 8 charges 16-year-old Nathaniel Jouett with 33 counts of murder and other crimes.

According to court records, Jouett told investigators that he initially intended to target his school and that he somehow ended up at the library. Authorities have said he did not know the victims.
