COVINGTON, Ga. — The Newton County Sheriff's Office was still investigating Monday following the arrest of a Rockdale County man on charges he shot another man last week at a Covington apartment complex.
Sheriff's deputies charged Calvin Quincey Jones, 18, of Conyers with Aggravated Assault and Possession of a Firearm or Knife During the Commission of a Crime, both felonies, following the Thursday night incident.

"Upon arrival, deputies met with the 20-year-old victim, who sustained a gunshot wound. He was transported to a local hospital," said spokesperson Caitlin Jett.
The victim's name was not immediately available.
Jones was being held without bond at the Newton County Detention Center, according to jail records.
