Charges against a Minneapolis man accused of fatally shooting two men have been dismissed

MINNEAPOLIS – Hennepin County prosecutors say charges have been dismissed against a man accused of fatally shooting two men in Minneapolis in May because surveillance video discovered later shows he was not the shooter.

Twenty-one-year-old Deijuan McCaleb-Robinson, was recently released from custody after prosecutors explained in a court filing that the state “cannot prove the criminal counts charged beyond a reasonable doubt,” based on further evidence. Assistant County Attorney Maxwell Page says McCaleb-Robinson was initially charged based on eyewitness evidence, which identified him as the shooter.

But, Page says further investigation in the form of video surveillance footage showed that Caleb-Robinson was not the shooter. Page says the investigation remains open.
