Five men have been arrested, including one charged with attempted murder, after a shooting at a New Jersey high school football game wounded three on Friday, the Atlantic City Prosecutor's Office announced.
The three victims were reportedly a 27-year-old man, a 15-year-old boy and a 10-year-old boy. The man was the intended target of the shooting due to an unspecified dispute from Atlantic City, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer, while the two boys were bystanders.
The alleged shooter, 31-year-old Alvin Wyatt, was charged by prosecutors with three counts of attempted murder, unlawful possession of a weapon and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose. There had been earlier reports of the shooter escaping the scene by running across the field and into the parking lot.

Prosecutors allege the other four men — Michael Mack, 27, Tyrell Dorn, 28, Shahid Dixon, 27, and Vance Golden, 26 — were at the game and connected to the shooting. The four reportedly fled from police after the shootings, with one throwing the gun out of a vehicle near Atlantic City. All four are charged with unlawful possession of a weapon and certain persons not to possess a weapon, with Dixon also facing a charge of eluding.
The shooting occurred during the third quarter of a playoff game between Pleasantville and Camden High School. As Pleasantville players downed a punt, several shots rang out from the bleachers and sparked chaos among the fans and players.
Here’s the moment the shots (at least six) rang out. Pleasantville was down 6-0 about halfway through the third quarter, and punting to Camden. Of course that’s insignificant- just more context. pic.twitter.com/OBDMN1JOLA
