Charges dropped in 2016 Haines City shooting

- Prosecutors have decided not to prosecute the man suspected of opening fire during a late-night dispute in Haines City last year.

It was back in July of 2016 when, police say, when Bradley Mills reported that two men down the street from his home on Mason Avenue were harassing his wife.  When he told them to stop, Mills claimed, one of them fired several shots, hitting him twice.

Mills was hospitalized with minor injuries.  Authorities later identified Rolando Fernandez Rodriquez as the gunman and charged him with attempted second-degree murder.

However, the state Attorney’s Office dropped the case last week, citing “evidentiary issues that would prevent the State from proving the case beyond a reasonable doubt,” according to Assistant State Attorney Jacob Orr.
