Information on Cherokee County, AL Shooting in July That Left One Dead


Additional information has been released regarding the domestic dispute which ended with one person being fatally shot back in July 2021 in Cherokee County, Alabama.

At around 1:00 pm Saturday, 9-1-1 Central Dispatch received a call from a man saying he’d shot his wife.

After arriving at the residence – on County Road 662 in the Round Mountain Community – officers found the body of 37-year-old Christine Cunningham on the back deck of the home.

She had suffered a fatal gunshot wound – meanwhile her husband, 40-year-old Daniel Cunningham, apparently suffered a stab wound during the incident.

At this time, no charges have been filed, but the District Attorney’s Office WILL present the case to a Grand Jury for consideration.
