House, truck shot at in dispute


COVINGTON, Ga.-The Newton County Sheriff’s Office (NCSO) responded to a report of shots fired at a Covington house early Tuesday morning.

According to the NCSO report, a deputy responded to the home on Branchwood Drive April 18 at 1:17 a.m. where he spoke with the complainant who advised that someone had fired several rounds into his vehicle and his house. The suspect reportedly then left the area on foot.
