COVINGTON — A 33-year-old man died of multiple gunshot wounds Saturday following an incident in the Nelson Heights community.
Officers responded to a report of shots fired at Puckett Street and Chaney Drive at about 7:30 p.m. Saturday, where they found several spent rounds from two different caliber weapons in and around the street.
