A 17-year-old Jordan High School football player has been charged with murder and attempted murder for a shooting that took place after an Oct. 4 game in Playa del Rey, the district attorney's office announced Wednesday.
The football player, whose name has been withheld because of his age, also was charged with one count of being a minor in possession of a firearm, officials said.
The victims were Earoll Michael Thomas, 18, who died at the scene of the shooting, and Costromas Abercrombie, also 18, who remains hospitalized after being shot in the head, officials said.
The young men were shot shortly after 10 p.m. near the track at St. Bernard High School following a game between Jordan and St. Bernard. The suspect had not played in the game because of a shoulder injury, police said.
