Crown prosecutors have withdrawn a murder charge against a 24-year-old man originally accused of shooting and killing a man at a Mill Woods restaurant in March.

Police originally charged Tyson Richard Clark with second degree murder after he allegedly pulled a gun and shot two men, killing one, following an altercation at the pizza restaurant.

Prosecutors have now dropped the murder charge and an associated aggravated assault charge against Clark after determining there was no reasonable likelihood of conviction, said Michelle Davio, a spokesperson for Alberta Justice.

Davio said the case will be proceeding on a number of weapons offenses, however, including two violations of conditions and a charge of attempting to obstruct justice.

In total, nine charges will remain.

Clark is expected to appear in court September 27.
