A 10-year-old boy who was shot last week while attending a high school football game in New Jersey has died, officials told sister station WPVI in Philadelphia.
Micah Tennant, nickname “Dew,” was shot at the game between the Pleasantville Greyhounds and Camden Panthers on Friday night. A 15-year-old boy also suffered a graze wound.
The man who police say was the intended target of the shooting was struck and seriously wounded.
Micah’s mom, Angela Tennant, posted on social media over the weekend, “We’re not using the word hope when it comes to Dew…I’ve got Big Faith.”
The game was suspended during the third quarter following the shooting but resumed Wednesday at Lincoln Financial Field, but the Philadelphia Eagles organization hosted the remainder of the game Wednesday.
Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz spoke of the incident during a press conference just hours before the game.
