NEWPORT-A dramatic story about a man witnessing someone in a passing vehicle shoot his brother in the stomach turned out to be just that: a story.

Shane Stallings, 20, allegedly initially told Patrolman Derek Wright with the Newport Police Department that on Saturday, Oct. 20, he and his brother, Dana, were walking on Wayside Alley when a small dark-colored vehicle passed them and Shane heard what appeared to be a firecracker sound. Shane said Dana Stallings grabbed his stomach, where he had been shot, and fell towards Shane.
