AIKEN, SC (WFXG) -

Charges have been dismissed against a man who was charged for a deadly shooting in Aiken.

Jermiah Blocker was arrested June 27 after police say two witnesses identified him as the person who shot Dante Dunbar on Jehossee Drive.

Investigators say Blocker gave them an alibi and additional information that ruled him out as a suspect.

Blocker remains in jail at the Aiken County Detention Center on unrelated charges.

The investigation into the murder is still ongoing.
