Alvin Wyatt, 35, has been found guilty of the murder of a 10-year-old boy who was tragically shot during a high school football game in Pleasantville, New Jersey.
The verdict came after a New Jersey jury determined that Wyatt was responsible for the fatal shooting of Micah Tennant, who was attending the Pleasantville High School football game. In November 2019, Wyatt allegedly fired a gun eight times into the crowded bleachers, where Micah was watching the game with his mother and sister.
One of the bullets struck the young boy in the neck, resulting in severe injuries that he ultimately did not survive. Despite undergoing multiple surgeries, Micah tragically passed away several days after the shooting.
Additionally, a 31-year-old individual was also shot multiple times during the incident, leaving them permanently confined to a wheelchair. Another victim, who was 15 years old at the time, suffered a gunshot wound to the arm.
Law enforcement authorities swiftly took Wyatt into custody at the scene of the crime as he attempted to flee. Subsequently, an investigation involving the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office, Pleasantville Police Department, Atlantic City Police Department, Absecon Police Department, and agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms was launched.
Now that he has been found guilty, Alvin Wyatt faces the consequences of his actions. He is scheduled to be sentenced in September for the murder of Micah Tennant and the other related charges.
