CANTON, Ga. —
A Cherokee County woman is dead after police said her boyfriend shot her five times. The Cherokee County Sheriff's Office said Dejanirra Elrod, 19, was shot near the doorway of her home in the River Ridge Apartments on Pea Ridge Road in Canton. Investigators said no one witnessed the shooting, but were told Elrod's boyfriend, Trevor Nuckles, 21, of Canton, had just at the home when she called 911. Police said Nuckles grabbed the phone from Elrod and threw it on the ground before fleeing the house. Officers found Nuckles walking near the River Ridge Apartments. They took him into custody and questioned him about the shooting. Police said they also found the gun used in the shooting a short distance from the crime scene. Officers have charged Nuckles with murder, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, and obstruction of a 911 call. Nuckles is currently in the Cherokee Adult Detention Center.
