Murder charges were dropped Thursday against a Kansas City, Kan. man accused of killing two men in a 2015 drive-by shooting.
Prosecutors in Wyandotte County dropped two counts of first-degree premeditated murder charges against 25-year-old Christoper Lewis.
Lewis, then 23, was accused of shooting Deron J. Rucker, 23, and Antonio R. Rucker, 24, to death outside Pepper’s Hot Dogs & Phillies in the 1900 block of Quindaro Boulevard in August 2015.
Both victims were from Kansas City, Kan.
A spokesman from the Wyandotte District Attorney’s Office said charges could be filed again if an ongoing investigation yields additional information that will support a conviction.
The case was tried in 2016 and resulted in a hung jury, prosecutors said.
