DEL RIO-A third, and probably final, version of the events surrounding the shooting of a 20-year-old man, was recently revealed.

In the first version, there was a dramatic story about a juvenile allegedly witnessing someone in a passing vehicle shoot a relative in the stomach.

That turned out to be false.

The juvenile allegedly told Patrolman Derek Wright with the Newport Police Department that on Saturday, Oct. 20, he and Dana Stallings, 20, were walking on Wayside Alley when a small dark-colored vehicle passed them.

The juvenile said he heard what appeared to be a firecracker sound. He said that Stallings grabbed his stomach, where he had been shot, and fell towards the juvenile.

Upon re-examination, however, the narrative crumbled and another version surfaced, according to a NPD report.
