ROME – Three Rome men are facing charges after one of them allegedly shot another with a pellet gun and all three lied about the incident, according to the Rome Police Department.

Police say on the night of Sept. 25, 34-year-old Allen Lipphardt was hanging out with 35-year-old Deron Stinson and 28-year-old Colton Mickle at an apartment on South Madison Street when Lipphardt left to walk to Burger King and get food.

While Lipphardt was on his way into Burger King, Stinson shot him in the back with a pellet gun from the apartment, according to police. As Lipphardt was walking back to the apartment with the food, police say Stinson shot him again, this time in the chest, and Lipphardt fell to the ground.

Police say Stinson and Mickle then called 911, and the three men are accused of making up a story of an unknown shooter so that they wouldn’t get into trouble. Police said after the incident that Lipphardt was not cooperating with them.

Stinson, who shot the pellet gun, is charged with the misdemeanors of second-degree reckless endangerment, making a punishable false written statement, and third-degree falsely reporting an incident.

Lipphardt and Mickle are both charged with misdemeanor third-degree falsely reporting an incident.
