On July 21, at about 1850 hours, deputies responded to a physical disturbance involving several subjects. When deputies arrived, they discovered that Stephanie Wilson had been shot in the face. She was transported to Mercy Hospital where she was treated for a non-life threatening gunshot wound.

Deputies contacted the suspect in the shooting, Clifford Piroy, at his residence. Piroy was taken into custody without incident and transported to the Douglas County Jail where he was lodged on an Attempted Murder Charge.

Sheriff's Detectives were called out to assist with the investigation. After interviewing everyone involved in the incident, they learned that the incident started as a physical altercation between Jimmy Allen, Ricky Koch and Wilson. Piroy attempted to intervene and was armed with a 22 caliber pistol. The pistol was discharged, striking Wilson once in the face. The bullet entered Wilson's upper lip and exited through her left cheek.
