The Criminal Court division of Hamilton County Court has cleared two charges against D Kobe Jordan in a murder at a gas station on Glenwood Drive in June.

On June 26th, police found 18-year-old Michael Benning and 20-year-old Dangelo Marshall at Citgo gas station, both having suffered gunshot wounds. Marshall died of his injuries, and Benning was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.

Police deemed the shooting to be gang-related, and the result of a botched drug deal.

CPD later arrested 19-year-old D Kobe Jordan and charged him with criminal homicide, attempted first degree murder, possessing a firearm with intent to go armed, and an unrelated aggravated assault - domestic charge.

Police say Jordan is a validated gang member, but Marshall and Benning were not.

Tuesday, Sessions Court Judge Starnes dismissed the charges of criminal homicide and attempted first degree murder charges against Jordan, saying that evidence was unable to prove who shot first.

Jordan's firearm possession and aggravated assault charges will move forward now.

Jordan has been bound over to the grand jury.

Depend on us for more details as we learn them.
