— A judge ruled there was not probable cause for prosecutors to move forward against three Rock Hill men accused of gang ties who were charged by police with an October armed robbery of cell phones from 11 Winthrop students, court officials said.

However, all three still face charges in other crimes, including one who faces a murder charge from a January killing.

After a court hearing Tuesday, a magistrate ruled there was not sufficient evidence against Dontavion White, 17; Marquis Glover, 17, and Robert Johnson, 18.

White, still being held without bond, faces murder charges in the death of Michael Giddens.

Glover, who was previously released on bond, faces attempted murder from a 2013 shooting incident.

Johnson still faces charges including attempted murder.
