Highland Lake shooting


A late afternoon shooting at Highland Lake on Thursday, April 4, resulted in the death of 36-year-old Daniel Stockley. Highland Lake Police Department and the Blount County Sheriff’s Office responded to the scene. Reports indicate Stockley was alive when transported from the scene, but died later.

Sheriff Mark Moon said in a statement released Thursday night that one person was being questioned. Few other details have been released by the Sheriff’s Office, the lead agency in the case because the incident is still under investigation. Chief Deputy Brian Whitt said no charges have been filed and the case will be presented to a grand jury.

According to his obituary, Stockley is survived by his wife, two children, and one unborn child.
