BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) -

The man once charged with the murder of his girlfriend in Bossier City is now free, and his attorney says he has no hard feelings toward the investigators who initially charged him.

Attorney Eric Johnson says his client, Taurus Carter, was shocked when he was charged with the murder of his girlfriend, Ieshia Winbush. Winbush was fatally shot in Carter's Bossier City home on Patton Street in September.

After getting new information from interviews, police dropped the charges against Carter and charged two juveniles instead.

"And (we are) very grateful to the police officers of the Bossier City Police Department who continued working the case, even after they arrested and charged him. Police officers are like you and I, and everyone else, they make mistakes. They realized the mistake, they corrected it, and we're very grateful to them for having done that," said Johnson.

Bossier City police are not sharing exactly what information was shared to make them change their minds.

Police will say they believe one of the juveniles shot Winbush while burglarizing the home.
