PLEASANTVILLE, N.J. —- (WPIX) -- The 10-year-old boy shot at a New Jersey football game on Friday evening has died, officials said.
He was identified as Micah Tennant.
“This horrible news should shake us all. 10-year-old Micah—or “Dew” as most called him—has died,” Sen. Bob Menendez tweeted. “He was shot randomly at a high school football game. A football game for god’s sake. My heart is breaking for this little boy’s family.”
Alvin Wyatt, 21, was charged with murder in connection with Tennant’s death. He was captured on the football field moments after the shooting by a Pleasantville officer who was part of the game’s security detail.
Five other men were charged after the shooting sent players and the packed crowd fleeing in panic.

Three other men face weapons charges, and a fourth faces weapons and eluding charges.
