Case dismissed: Charged dropped against Matthew McMillan, accused of killing 14-year-old boy

MILWAUKEE -- Charges have been dismissed against the teenager accused of killing a 14-year-old boy on the evening of last year's lakefront fireworks show in Milwaukee.

Prosecutors say 16-year-old Matthew McMillan shot and killed Tariq Akbar near Lake Dr. and Wyoming Pl. Originally they said it was because of a fight over a girl.

On Monday, October 17th, the state moved to dismiss the case because they could not get witnesses to cooperate.
