— Prosecutors have dismissed all charges against a Fayetteville man in connection with a shooting in a liquor house two years ago that left one man dead and two others wounded.

Izaak Eugene Bridges, 43, had been charged with first-degree murder and two counts each of attempted first-degree murder and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury.

The shooting occurred April 5, 2015, during a party at 357 Dick St., which Fayetteville police said was a house used for illegal liquor sales.

Ivery Montreat Elliott, 34, was killed, and Brandon Alexander Siermons, 22, and Winfred Terell Lesane, 22, were wounded.

Prosecutors cited insufficient evidence as the reason they dismissed the charges.
