Man killed in Cherokee County home

Posted: Updated:

Cherokee County Sheriff's detectives are investigating a fatal shooting at a home in the 100 block of Misty Hollow Way in Woodstock.

According to department spokesman Lt. Jay Baker, deputies responded to a person-down call at a home Sunday evening. Upon arrival, they discovered 47-year-old Christopher Pierce dead inside the residence from an apparent gunshot wound.

Investigators do not feel this is a random crime and believe the person who shot Pierce may have known him. 

Investigators are currently interviewing family members and acquaintances of Pierce. No charges have been filed at this time.

If anyone has any information about this incident they are urged to contact detectives with the Cherokee Sheriff's Office at (770) 928-0239.
