Accused shooter in football game killing will remain jailed

MAYS LANDING, N.J. (AP) — A man accused of firing a gun into the crowded bleachers of a New Jersey high school football game, killing a 10-year-old boy, will be held in jail until his trial.

Alvin Wyatt is charged with murder and other offenses stemming from the Nov. 15 shooting at a playoff game between home team Pleasantville and Camden.

Two others also sustained gunshot wounds.

Superior Court Judge Bernard DeLury noted that Wyatt faces life behind bars if convicted.

Wyatt’s attorney did not address his client’s guilt or innocence during Wednesday’s court hearing in Mays Landing.

The attorney left the courtroom without speaking to reporters. A message seeking comment was left with his office afterward.

The Philadelphia Eagles offered up their stadium to play out the remainder of the game days later.
