A 10-year-old is now in critical condition, while a 15-year-old boy suffered a graze wound, was treated at a hospital and released. They've been identified as 27-year-old Michael Mack, 28-year-old Tyrell Dorn, 27-year-old Shahid Dixon, and 26-year-old Vance Golden.

Jersey Sports Zone, who was there to cover the game, reported that at least six shots were fired in the stands and that police officers, security guards and emergency personnel were quick to rush to the bleachers.
