In­ves­ti­ga­tors with the Cov­ing­ton Po­lice Depart­ment (CPD) are in­ves­ti­gat­ing two Tues­day evening shoot­ings.

The first, a shoot­ing at a gas sta­tion left one man dead.

Ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease by CPD Pub­lic In­for­ma­tion Of­fi­cer Allan See­baran, of­fi­cers re­sponded to the Shell sta­tion at Wheat Street and High­way 142 in ref­er­ence to a per­son shot shortly af­ter 8 p.m. Aug 1.

Ac­cord­ing to the re­lease, the shooter, iden­ti­fied as Prince Ja­cobs, 34, of Stone Moun­tain, was at the scene and de­tained by of­fi­cers with­out in­ci­dent. A 9 mm hand­gun was also seized as ev­i­dence. The vic­tim, iden­ti­fied as Ter­rance Nol­ley, 28, of Cov­ing­ton, was lay­ing be­tween his car and Ja­cobs’ car in the drive­way en­trance to the gas sta­tion from Hwy. 142.

Of­fi­cers re­port­edly ren­dered aid to Nol- ley un­til fire and EMS personnel ar­rived and trans­ported him to Pied­mont New­ton Hos­pi­tal where, ac­cord­ing to the re­lease, he died.

See­baran said based on wit­ness state­ments, Ja­cobs and Nol­ley had some type of ex­change of words in the park­ing lot of the store. Ja­cobs left in his ve­hi­cle and was ex­it­ing onto High­way 142 when Nol­ley passed him and cut him off at the exit of the park­ing lot, forc­ing him to stop.

Ac­cord­ing to the re­lease, Nol­ley ex­ited his ve­hi­cle and be­gan yelling at Ja­cobs while ap­proach­ing his car. The re­lease

states that Nol­ley be­gan punch­ing Ja­cobs in the face through the open car win­dow. Ja­cobs then shot Nol­ley twice.

Ac­cord­ing to the re­lease, wit­ness state­ments matched the statement of Ja­cobs in­di­cat­ing that Nol­ley was the pri­mary ag­gres­sor. Both ve­hi­cles were seized and are be­ing stored at a CPD fa­cil­ity for ev­i­den­tiary safe­keep­ing.

See­baran said Ja­cobs was in­ter­viewed and re­leased and is not fac­ing any charges for the in­ci­dent, which re­mains un­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion by the CPD Crim­i­nal In­ves­ti­ga­tions Di­vi­sion.

Less than an hour af­ter re­spond­ing to a deadly shoot­ing at a gas sta­tion on High­way 142, CPD re­sponded to a shoot­ing on Brown Street that re­sulted in an uniden­ti­fied 28-year-old male be­ing flown from the scene suf­fer­ing from a gun­shot wound to his face.

Ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease from See­baran, of­fi­cers re­sponded to the 2000 block of Brown Street shortly be­fore 9 p.m. Tues­day night in ref­er­ence to a per­son shot.

When they ar­rived at the scene, the per­son who had been shot, also the sus­pect in a do­mes­tic vi­o­lence in­ci­dent was in his ve­hi­cle per­pen­dic­u­lar to the road­way suf­fer­ing from a gun­shot wound to his fa­cial area.

Ac­cord­ing to the re­lease, the shooter, iden­ti­fied as Jon Win­ter, re­mained on the scene and was de­tained by po­lice with­out in­ci­dent and a .357 mag­num re­volver was seized as ev­i­dence.

See­baran said based on state­ments re­ceived by po­lice, the sus­pect went to the res­i­dence to fight with Michelle Wilkins. Dur­ing the ar­gu­ment, Wilkins tried to get away from the sus­pect but he would not let her. Ac­cord­ing to the re­lease, there was a phys­i­cal al­ter­ca­tion be­tween the two dur­ing which the sus­pect pushed Wilkins into some bushes and took her cell­phone.

Ac­cord­ing to the re­lease, when Wilkins went af­ter the sus­pect to get her phone back, the sus­pect placed her in a choke­hold and dragged her to his ve­hi­cle. The sus­pect then re­port­edly got into his ve­hi­cle and be­gan to drive away with Wilkins still in in the choke­hold.

Ac­cord­ing to the re­lease, Wilkins’ 13-yearold daugh­ter saw what was hap­pen­ing and be­gan scream­ing for her grand­fa­ther, stat­ing that the sus­pect was try­ing to kill her mother. See­baran said Jon Win­ters, 55, heard the scream­ing and ex­ited the house with his re­volver.
