KINGSTON, OK - A Texoma native was shot and killed serving our country overseas this weekend. 27-year-old Second Lieutenant Joe Lee Cunningham died in Afghanistan on Saturday.

Marshall County Under Sheriff Donnie Raley says Cunningham was a 2003 graduate of Kingston High School, and that he worked at the sheriff's office a few years ago before he decided to rejoin the Army. He also says Cunningham hoped to one day join the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.

The Department of Defense has not released official information on Cunningham's death.

His body is scheduled to be returned to Oklahoma later this week. Funeral services are pending.
