ATLANTIC COUNTY — A 31-year-old man was indicted for murder Tuesday in connection with the fatal shooting of a 10-year-old boy during the Pleasantville-Camden high school football game last November, Atlantic County Prosecutor Damon Tyner announced.
An Atlantic County grand jury indicted Alvin Wyatt for the murder of Atlantic City boy, Micah Tennant, as well as two counts of attempted murder, unlawful possession of a weapon, and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose.
According to the authorities, Wyatt opened fire during the third quarter of the playoff football game on Nov. 15 in Pleasantville, injuring three people.
Tennant was wounded in the neck, a 15-year-old was grazed by a bullet in the arm and the alleged intended target, 27-year-old Ibn Adbullah, was struck as well. The 10-year-old died five days later from his wounds — hours before Camden beat Pleasantville 22-0 in the rescheduled game at the Philadelphia Eagles’ stadium.
In addition to Wyatt, four others reportedly fled the scene at the time of the shooting in a vehicle and discarded a gun while entering Atlantic City.
Michael Mack, Tyrell Dorn, Shahid Dixon and Vance Golden were also indicted on unlawful possession of a weapon and certain persons not to possess a weapon.
The five men are set for arraignments later in February in the Atlantic Superior Court.
