Disney has announced details on the third episode of “Bad Romance,” the new eight-episode limited true-crime series from ABC News’ “20/20″.

The third episode is called “Shot in the Dark” and features a high school love story turned deadly. They seemed like quintessential high school sweethearts. Riley, a football player, and Emma, a cheerleader, began dating while attending high school in Knoxville, Tennessee. But not long into the relationship, the romance went from sweet to sour as Emma’s parents and friends said Riley started to act overly possessive and tried to control her every move.

After Emma decided to finally break up with Riley, a strange and bizarre chain of events ensued: Emma receives text messages from an unknown number claiming someone kidnapped Riley, a man all in black arrives at Emma’s home while she is there alone, and Riley’s grandfather’s gun mysteriously disappears.

In a shocking twist of events, Emma is then shot in her sleep from outside the house, through the walls. Who is behind the deadly shooting? A sting operation with local police uncovers the killer and much more. “Shot in the Dark” includes interviews with Emma’s parents, Jill and Mark Walker; friends of Emma and Riley; police detectives; and the defense and prosecuting attorneys in Riley’s trial.
