According to the release, the victim was conscious throughout his contact with police, and he identified a suspect who had shot him, but after the suspect was found near the crime scene, evidence gathered, including security videos at various locations, showed that he could not have shot the man.

Police determined that a 16-year-old “associate” accidentally had shot the man, and the victim’s initial claims were false.

“Through diligent police work and the cooperation of the person originally identified as the suspect, the victim’s report of being shot was deemed to be false,” the release said.
