Memorial Football Game Played To Honor Slain 8-Year-Old Landover Boy

LANDOVER, Md. (WJZ) -- More heartbreak Monday night.

It was an emotional game night in Prince George's County. This weekend, the community held a memorial football game in honor of an 8-year-old who was shot and killed inside his own home.

P.J. Evans loved to play football. So when his team, the Showcase Sharks, took to the field this weekend, they were just determined to win for their friend.

P.J. was killed last weekend when someone opened fire outside his Landover home. A bullet struck him while he was playing video games inside. 

There is now a $25,000 reward offered for information that leads to an arrest.
