CALGARY — The Crown has stayed charges against two teenage brothers in a Calgary shooting that left one man dead and two others injured last week.
A 14-year-old boy, who cannot be named under the Youth Criminal Justice Act, had been charged with one count of first-degree murder and two counts of attempted murder.
His 18-year-old brother had been charged with accessory to murder after the fact.
A spokeswoman for the Alberta Crown Prosecution Service says the case was reassessed after additional information came to light.
Police had charged the two brothers after a Nov. 13 shooting in the parking lot of mall in northeastern Calgary and found 23-year-old Rami Hajj Ali dead and two others injured.
Investigators said at the time that the attack was targeted and connected to an ongoing organized crime conflict in Calgary.
