COVINGTON, Ga. (AP) - Authorities say they’re investigating a possible homicide after a man was found shot multiple times on the side of a road in Covington.

Newton County sheriff’s Sgt. Michael Cunningham says the man was found unconscious along Lower River Road on Sunday morning and was later pronounced dead. His name wasn’t released.

Cunningham tells The Covington News (bit.ly/28INBMg) that the victim was last seen leaving from work around 11:30 p.m. on Saturday night.

Sheriff’s officials are searching for the man’s vehicle, a black 1999 Ford Expedition. They’re asking anyone with information to contact them.

Covington is about 30 miles southeast of Atlanta.
