COVINGTON, Ga. –
Investigators with the Newton County Sheriff’s Office (NCSO) are looking for
two people responsible for damaging a house and a truck with gunfire early
Sunday morning while possibly shooting at each other.
According to the NCSO incident report, deputies responded to Gum Tree Court just after midnight Sept. 10 on a report of gunshots in the area. The caller reportedly told the dispatcher it sounded like there were 12-20 shots and that two subjects were seen running after each other shooting.
When deputies arrived, they discovered one house that was damaged when a round hit an exterior wall. Deputies later responded to a different house on Gum Creek Court where the resident reportedly showed them damage to his pick-up truck. According to the report, the truck had been shot in two different places.
Deputies collected 15 9mm shell casings from the street and a metal casing from a bullet from the backseat of the truck. No injuries were reported in the incident.
