Charges against the five alleged shooting defendants were dismissed in Dyersburg City Court and Dyer County Juvenile Court at the request of the District Attorney General’s Office. The dismissal of charges are a result of the victims involved refusing to cooperate with detectives and the District Attorney General’s Office. Dyersburg Police Chief Steve Isbell provided the following statement. “Witnesses not cooperating with law enforcement makes our jobs very challenging; however, when victims refuse to cooperate it leaves us with no options to pursue adjudication in court.”
