Murder Charge Dropped In Md. Store Slaying

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Prosecutors have dropped nine charges, including first-degree murder, against a Glen Burnie teenager in a fatal shooting during a botched robbery of a convenience store.

The Capital of Annapolis reports that prosecutors said Tuesday that they lacked physical evidence in the case against Shawn Johnson, 19, in the 2010 slaying of Youssef Attia, 48, at a 7-Eleven in Glen Burnie.

Earlier this month, Johnson was sentenced to 50 years in prison for his involvement in the armed robbery of Mr. Wings & Pizza that led to the death of Misael Flores, 20.
