Attempted murder charges dropped against man accused of bar shooting

MIAMI (WSVN) - Prosecutors dropped three attempted murder charges, Tuesday, against a man accused of shooting at three people outside a South Florida bar in 2014.

Officials said Leon Hillman was caught on camera approaching a group of people outside Grumpy’s Bar and Grill, in South Miami-Dade, in June of 2014, but the prosecutors’ case has fallen apart.

Hillman’s attorney, Alex Michaels, said the prosecutors had no witnesses.

“There were no witnesses, except this nutcase they call alleged victim who changes his story 20 times,” Michaels said. “The description doesn’t match. He wants money.”

Hillman was set to stand trial Tuesday and would have faced 75 years in prison if convicted.
