A domestic dispute between neighbors turned deadly in Cherokee County Tuesday morning.
According to a news release from Sheriff Jeff Shaver, the incident occurred just after 10:30am on County Road 45. Deputies responded to a report of a shooting – and they arrived on the scene to find the victim – identified as 54 year old Richard Lee Moon of Centre – lying in the driveway in front of the residence.
They took a man into custody for questioning and that individual was reportedly in possession of a weapon suspected to have been used in the incident; the man was later released, and no charges have yet been filed.
The case is expected to be taken before the Grand Jury for consideration.
Investigators with the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office, the Calhoun/Cleburne County Drug and Violent Crime Task Force, and the District Attorney’s Office are investigating the shooting.
