INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (September 5, 2014)– Charges were dropped Friday against a teen accused in a fatal shooting on July 4.

Eron Bonner was charged in connection with the death of Monquize Edwards, 16, on a downtown sidewalk on July 4.

Bonner was facing charges of felony murder and firearm possession by a serious violent felon. The case also had a criminal gang sentence enhancement that could have doubled his sentence if he had been found guilty.

Court documents show the case was dismissed due to “evidentiary problems.”
