Lewis Powell and Dequan Maloney, both of Upper Shaw Avenue, McKnight were charged June 9 with attempted murder. The duo were initially charged with causing grievous bodily harm and making use of a firearm to commit a felony.

The incident in question took place on May 27 at Warner Park football stadium during the SKNFA Final Four playoffs. At the time, the Rams Village Superstars and the Flow 4G Rockets were playing, with the latter leading 2-0.
