Dallas (Dally) Winston is one of the protagonists of the Movie. He has been a criminal for life, and only has respect for Johnny. After he died, Dallas purposely stole because he was in a state of grief after Johnny's death. He did this just to get killed by the police, which he indefinitely was.

He has been in jail for mugging, stealing, cheating, fighting, and much more. The book also mentions that Dally had spent three years on the wild side of New York and had been arrested at the age of ten. Dally dies after Johnny dies from being trapped inside a burning church after saving some little kids. Ponyboy states in the book that Johnny was the only thing Dally loved. After Johnny's tragic death, Dallas freaks out and runs out of the hospital, leaving Ponyboy behind. It turns out he robs a grocery store and that the police are now after him. He calls Darry and tells him to bring the gang and meet him at the vacant lot. That's where he dies, raising his gun to the police, who didn't know his gun wasn't loaded, and Dally is shot as the gang yells at him. Therefore it is suicide by cop. He dies hours after Johnny. Dally is 18 years old.
