Two local businessmen suffered near fatal gunshot wounds when two cars arrived at their place of business and opened fire. Although the victims and passersby initially identified our client as one of the shooters, after careful investigation and pressing deposition questioning the truth came to light. Our client was the victim of hearsay and “word on the street.” Once the prosecution realized that no one actually saw the shooters, but rather just assumed they knew who the shooters were based on “what they heard,” all charges were dropped.
