The Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a shooting death that occurred last Wednesday night.
Sources indicate five individuals were driving along Parrish Lake Road late Wednesday when they spotted a vehicle pulled to the side. They stopped to offer assistance and found John James Arthur Finney, 35, unresponsive. They initially thought he had passed out and tried to rouse him, then realized he was dead. They immediately called authorities.
The CCSO reports that Finney died from a gunshot wound. Although it is believed to be self-inflicted, the case is under investigation.
There were no updates on findings as of press time Tuesday morning.
Finney’s obituary can be found on page 8 of this issue.
