Saturday Night Shooting In Cherokee County Remains Under Investigation
A shooting over the weekend sent two individuals to the hospital for treatment – and Cherokee County Jeff Shaver informed us that Deputies responded to the call around 9:30 Saturday night on County Road 101 and upon arrival they found two people that were indeed suffering from gunshot wounds.
Both were immediately taken to area hospitals.
Monday, WEIS Radio News spoke with Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office Chief Deputy Josh Summerford who said that no motive has yet been established, wouldn’t release the names of the victims, and wouldn’t comment beyond saying that the case remains under investigation by Sheriff’s Office Investigators, and that no other information is being released at this time.
Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office Investigators and Jacksonville State University (JSU) Center for Applied Forensics responded and processed the scene.
Reportedly, there is no threat to the community in relation to this case.
We’ll have additional information as its made available.
