The Latest: Game halted by shooting finishes on Eagles field
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Latest on a high school football game resuming on the Philadelphia Eagles field (all times local):
A New Jersey high school football game interrupted by deadly gunfire has finished on the Philadelphia Eagles home field, with Camden defeating Pleasantville 22-0.
The Eagles offered their field to finish the final 17 minutes of the game following the shooting last week that killed 10-year-old Micah Tennant.
Tennant was honored Wednesday with a moment of silence before the game, with the public address announcer saying “we join with Micah’s family to demonstrate that acts of violence do not win.”
Two other people were hit by the gunfire that broke out on the field’s bleachers. A 15-year-old was grazed and a 27-year-old man hit by a bullet has been charged in the shooting.
Six men have been charged.
