"The young boy was apparently a fan of a particular football team, the priest was not"

Once they were in the room, the priest allegedly had the boy stand against the wall, then retrieved a musket and pointed it at him, prosecutors said, citing several witnesses.

“As he raised his weapon and pointed it at the boy, he said, ‘I’m going to shoot you,'” Bergen County Prosecutor John Molinelli told NBC 4 New York Friday…

Prosecutors said the priest, a Giants fan, was apparently unhappy because the boy planned to root for the Cowboys in a game against the Giants later that day.
