Three men accused in the shooting death of Concordia basketball player Alonna Allison, 17, at a gathering on Schaper Drive in August 2015 had their charges dismissed today, a statement from the Allen County prosecutor's office said.

Joshua Smiley, Javaris Travier and Darrion Bright were at a birthday party outside a vacant home in the 2500 block of Schaper Drive when a dispute broke out and people began firing guns, court documents said.

Allison, who was not involved in the argument, was struck by gunfire.
