A 16-year-old student has been charged over the triple shooting and murder at a Florida high school, following a football game watched by thousands on Friday last week.
Robert Howard was arrested on Wednesday for the murder of Joerod Adams, 19, who was shot near the entrance to the Raines High School football stadium in Jacksonville in the midst of a large crowd at about 10pm on Friday night.
Adams, a former student at Raines, died on the scene immediately following the football game in a sidewalk that went from the school entrance to the stadium, the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office said.
Two other teenage students, a 16-year-old girl from Lee High School and a 17-year-old boy from Raines High School, were taken to hospital with gunshot wounds.
Investigators said several fights had broken out in the stands during the football game.
