BATTLE CREEK, Mich. — A Battle Creek man will be charged with murder again, after a Calhoun County judge dismissed the case, the prosecutor’s office said.
Ernest McGill, 39, was charged with shooting and killing Eniyah Hollins, 24, during a house party in Battle Creek.
Calhoun County Prosecutor David Gilbert confirmed charges were dropped because investigators were unable to locate a necessary witness to testify in the case.
The witness had been located and the court would reissue charges against McGill, Gilbert said Wednesday.
Hollins was shot and killed on June 27 while standing outside a house on Hanover street.
She was hit by a shot fired from a car at the intersection of Hanover Street and Walter Avenue. Investigators said they do not believe she was the intended target.
An hour before Hollins was killed, investigators said shots were fired at #1 Legends Bar and Grill on Porter Street. Battle Creek Police Sgt. Jeff Case said both shootings were connected.
