Police search for multiple suspects after man shot and killed during fight

A fight at a Covington home escalates into gunfire and now a man is dead.

Police say around 8:30 p.m. Wednesday they were called out to the house in the 41-hundred block of Washington Street.

That's where they found 40-year-old Shelvis Dwayne Hillman, who had been shot one time.  Paramedics rushed Hillman to the hospital, sadly he didn't survive.

Detectives think Hillman got into a fight with four other people. Things got out of hand, one of the combatants pulled a gun and shot Hillman.

Police are now looking for those four individuals.  No suspect description has been released, but investigators say they have some credible leads in the case.

They vow to keep working those leads until the shooter is behind bars.

Police call this a tragic loss of life and say their prayers go out to the victim's family.
