Workers Patch Covington PD Roof Following Shotgun Blast

Friday afternoon, workers patched what’s described as a small hole in the roof of the Covington Police Department’s headquarters.

Earlier in the week, a supervisor was issuing a shotgun to a new officer when the weapon fired into the ceiling.

Nobody got hurt, but Captain Jack West is suspended with pay while the incident is under investigation.

West is also under investigation for any role he may have had in the arrest of two high school football referees during a game in October.  The charges against the referees were dropped by the department within days of the arrests.
