The attorney's office said his bail is set at $500,000.

According to a criminal complaint, Saturday night, SWAT officers were patrolling near 15th Avenue South and Lake Street. When the officers reached the area of 14th Avenue South, they saw a group that then dispersed upon seeing the police.

The complaint states Stallings then walked from behind a car and walked toward the officers.

According to the complaint, officers were concerned after Stallings crouched near the vehicle and fired a less-lethal round at him. The complaint goes on to say that Stallings then fired three to four shots in the officers' direction. No officers were injured.

Stallings ran away and was later taken into custody by officers.

The complaint says officers later found a firearm near the vehicle where Stallings was seen.
