FORT MYERS, Fla.- Charges have been dropped against a Fort Myers man accused of shooting a 16-year-old girl at the Fort Myers Ale House back in February of this year.
Henry Brunson, 24, was facing Second Degree Murder charges, after Kanasha Isaac was shot in the face. Isaac did not survive. The State Attorney's Office has since found that there is "insufficient evidence to prove beyond a reasonable doubt who shot and killed" Isaac.
The SAO found that the only eyewitness in the case gave conflicting statements as to the identity of the shooter. Also, originally, the four adult surviving witnesses all lied about another adult being in the car. It's since been discovered that another adult male was in the car, and was dropped off on the way to the hospital.
They also found, during Brunson's interview, he invoked his right to an attorney almost immediately. Despite this, the interview was continues and during the same interview, a detective used gunshot residue swabs and discarded them, instead of putting them into evidence.
Finally, a ballistics report from FDLE showed there two firearms were used by the assailant(s), which contradicts the eyewitness' statement that there was only one shooter.
The investigation continues.
