Sean Riggin, chief of Police in Pleasantville, N.J., speaks with media on Saturday at Pleasantville High School regarding the shooting at a football game between Camden High School and Pleasantville.

In the end, the four men were arrested on charges of unlawful possession of a weapon, and certain persons not to possess a weapon, according to the prosecutor's office.

Alvin Wyatt, 31, has been charged with three counts of attempted murder, unlawful possession of a weapon and possession of a weapon for an unlawful objective.

Michael Mack and Shahid Dixon, both 27, Tyrell Dorn, 28, and Vance Golden, 26, were all charged with various weapons offenses.

The adult victim, Ibn Abdullah, was also reportedly charged with gun possession.

Riggin said there were several police officers and administrators at the game but did not give additional details about the circumstances of the shooting.

The brazen shooting, which took place at the Pleasantville High School football field during a game against Camden High School, was caught on video.

Jersey Sports Zone reports that six shots were fired on the Pleasantville side of the game.

Turkey's acquisition in July of Russia's S-400 air defense system crossed a line for many lawmakers. Ministry spokesman Ismail Çataklı said one American and one German were deported on Monday.

The shooting comes two months after two teens were shot during a football game at Philadelphia's Simon Gratz High School.

A man was also injured and was taken to an area hospital in serious condition. A 10-year-old boy is in critical condition, and a 15-year old boy was treated for a graze wound.

Atlantic County officials said the shots rang out during the third quarter of the game between Pleasantville High School and Camden High School. The prosecutor did not disclose a more specific reason for the shooting.

NJSIAA spokesman Mike Cherenson said the scholastic athletics governing body is "working with the schools to determine what is in best interest of kids".

"This was the most well-attended high school football game for this school in years, so there are many witnesses to the incident that are now being interviewed", Tyner said.

Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy lamented the violence.

"Grateful for our first responders".

Parents were forced to hold their babies and young children tight during the chaotic scene, so they wouldn't be trampled by the panicked crowd, according to Jonathan Diego, who was at the game on Friday.
