Prosecutors said they made the decision to drop the charges against Timothy Malek because they are waiting on ballistics and DNA results.

According to court documents, Malek was at a house party with Angel Grado when the two opened fire.

Three people were shot. Isaiah Villanueva died from those injuries.

Initially, both Grado and Malek were charged with murder.

Prosecutors still plan to argue that Malek should be held in custody before trial.
