Damien Patrick Holland, 25, was arrested shortly after the Friday night shooting, authorities said.
“There’s not sufficient evidence at this time to file criminal charges,” said Jane Robison, a spokeswoman for the district attorney’s office.
The victim was identified Tuesday as 17-year-old Christopher Baily of Los Angeles. Police earlier had said the victim was 18.
Holland and Baily were fighting and both struggled to control a gun, which fired and struck the teen, police said. Baily was taken to a nearby hospital where he died.
Holland, who had been held on $1 million bail, was released from custody Tuesday.
Khan, 51, is known for hits such as “Tell Me Something Good” and “I Feel For You.”
