Three police officers were criminally charged in the fatal shooting of an 8-year-old girl outside a high school football game near Philadelphia five months ago, authorities said.

The men, Devon Smith, 34, Sean Dolan, 25, and Brian Devaney, 41, were each charged with voluntary manslaughter, involuntary manslaughter and reckless endangerment in the exchange near Academy Park High School in Sharon Hill on Aug. 27, Delaware County District Attorney Jack Stollsteimer announced.

The three Sharon Hill Police Department officers were on patrol as crowds were leaving a football game.

That's when gunshots erupted in the 900 block of Coates Street and the officers "discharged their service weapons in the direction of the Academy Park football field," Stollsteimer said in a statement.

Fanta Bility, 8, was killed in the volley of shots.

"We have now concluded beyond a reasonable doubt that it was, in fact, shots from the officers that struck and killed Fanta Bility and injured three others," the DA said. Read more.
