BOSTON (AP) – A 15-year-old boy is being held without bail following a weekend incident in which a Pop Warner football coach was shot during a practice.

The teen was arraigned in Boston Juvenile Court on charges that include armed assault with intent to murder.

He’ll return to court for a dangerousness hearing on Thursday. The suspect’s bail on an unrelated case of receiving stolen property was also revoked.

The victim, 39-year-old Myron Stovell, was treated at Boston Medical Center for a non life-threatening injury to his right leg.

Stovell was a coach for the Boston Bengals, a team compromised of 10-year-olds that was practicing at a park in the Roxbury neighborhood.

Police are not commenting on a possible motive, although friends of Stovell say the shooting may have stemmed from an argument involving the suspect’s dog.
