COVINGTON, Ga. (AP) - A man is in custody after a domestic shooting in which two people were found dead in a home in Covington.

Newton County sheriff’s deputy Felicia Jefferson tells local media that the suspect called authorities Thursday afternoon and told them he had shot and killed two of his relatives.

Jefferson says the unidentified man emerged from the house to turn himself in after authorities arrived.

Investigators say the two victims were a male and female adult. Their identities have not been released.

Jefferson says the Newton County coroner will perform an autopsy to determine the victims’ cause and manner of death.
