A prosecutor has dismissed charges against the only man arrested in a 2012 shooting that left a man dead on Tunnel Boulevard.

Langdon Strickland, 30, saw first-degree murder and aggravated assault charges dismissed Monday, a year and a half after the death.

Strickland's attorney Bill Speek said Thursday that his client maintained his innocence throughout the process. Prosecutor Cameron Williams said there were no witnesses who could identify who was in a silver Nissan Sentra seen following the victim, Darrell Lane, on Aug. 5, 2012, moments before he died.

In a hearing last year, Speek said evidence showed there was gunplay inside of the car and speculated that another man inside the car that night -- Jamel Parker -- might have more information.
