A shooting in the stands halted Friday night’s Camden at Pleasantville high school football playoff game. Three people were injured, including a 10-year-old boy who was last listed in critical condition after being taken to Cooper University Hospital with a gunshot wound to his neck. Six people were charged in connection to the shooting, including a 31 year old man, who faces three counts of attempted murder.

This game was the Central Jersey Group 2 semifinal, and it was cut short in the 3rd quarter but will resume tomorrow, Wednesday, at Lincoln Financial Field as announced by the NJ State Interscholastic Athletic Association:

“It’s extremely unfortunate that a senselessly violent act has impacted this game, and there will certainly be a wide range of emotions along both sidelines,” NJSIAA executive director Larry White said in a statement. “However, thanks to the Eagles’ generosity and community spirit, Pleasantville and Camden student-athletes and their families will have an opportunity to write their own ending to this game. They’ll compete on a world-class stage, sending a clear message that violence will not win.”

The game will be played at 4 p.m. and is closed to the general public. Passes will be provided to players’ parents and family members.

Meantime, a GoFundMe was set up for the young boy, Micah, who is in a coma. As of Tuesday morning, $18,000 of the $30,000 goal had been raised and will go towards his medical bills.

Nice gesture by the Eagles to host both teams and see the game to completion.

  1. Remember when Kyle asked for advise on books about betting? Remember when Kyle tried using a credit card at the Borgata sports book?

    1. Kyle said that hiring Chip Kelly was a great move, and that hiring Doug Pederson was awful. Remember when Kyle removed the comments twice from this site and the site views dropped to zero.
