At the prosecutor's request, a judge dismissed the last charge against Weekley, a Detroit police officer who fatally shot a 7-year-old girl during a raid.  Two trials against  Weekley ended without verdicts on a charge of reckless use of a gun.   Weekley shot Aiyana Stanley-Jones as she slept on a couch in a Detroit home in 2010. It occurred during a frenzied raid by elite officers who burst through the door to search for a murder suspect after throwing a flash grenade to confuse anyone inside.
