A man has been arrested for the shooting at a youth football game in Prince George’s County that left a father dead and a 5-year-old injured.

Police say 29-year-old Dajuon Meniefield of Bowie has been charged with shooting and killing 33-year-old Christopher Mozee at Potomac High School over the weekend. 

Mozee was in the bleachers at the youth football game around 11:20 a.m. when police say an argument broke out between him and Meniefield. 

Police believe that’s when Meniefield pulled out a gun and began firing shots, hitting Mozee and the 5-year-old child.
