The shooting in Pleasantville happened in the stands of a Nov. 15 playoff game between the Camden Panthers and the Pleasantville Greyhounds. Authorities have said none of the six men charged had any connection to the game.
The shooting left a 27-year-old man and two children wounded. One of the youths, Michah Tennant, was shot in the neck and died five days later, just hours before the game was resumed.
Authorities have said the wounded man was targeted by the shooter, and he was among those charged in the case.
The suspected gunman — Alvin Wyatt, of Atlantic City — is charged with murder, two counts of attempted murder and two weapons offenses. He was captured on the football field moments after the shooting by a Pleasantville officer who was part of the game’s security detail.
