Man indicted on murder charge in N.J. football game shooting that killed 10-year-old boy

Alvin Wyatt is charged with one count of murder and two counts of attempted murder.

A grand jury has returned an indictment against a 31-year-old man following a shooting at a high school football game that left a young boy dead last fall.

Alvin Wyatt has been indicted for murder, two counts of attempted murder, unlawful possession of a weapon, and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose.

Back on Nov. 15, 2019 police say Wyatt shot three people at a playoff high school football game between home team Pleasantville and Camden.

 10-year-old Micah Tennant, a 15-year-old boy, and a 27-year-old man were all struck by gunfire. Tennant was shot in the neck and died five days after the shooting, just hours before the game was resumed at the Philadelphia Eagles home field.
