MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - A Mobile man who claimed self-defense in a fatal shooting in which the victim was shot eight times has been acquitted of a murder charge.

Christopher Cunningham was acquitted of murdering Daniel McGee on Thursday by a Mobile jury after five hours of deliberations over two days.

The 27-year-old Cunningham, an offshore worker, testified that

McGee had often threatened him and demanded money that Cunningham didn't owe.

Cunningham said that on the day of the shooting, McGee struck him with a pistol while vowing to kill him.
