Covington police are investigating a homicide that took place Saturday evening.

Conyers man faces murder charge after shooting in Covington

A Conyers man faces a murder charge after he was accused of shooting and killing a man in Covington over the weekend.

Quintariuys Cortez Manning, 27, was arrested Wednesday in the death of 33-year-old Michael Stanley, Covington police Capt. Ken Malcom told AJC.com. Manning turned himself in to police about 11 a.m.

The shooting happened about 7:30 p.m. Saturday near Puckett Street and Chaney Drive, Malcom said. When police arrived, they found shell casings belonging to two different caliber weapons, which means at least two guns were fired during the incident.

Soon after, police learned that a nearby ambulance was flagged down by someone who was taking Stanley to a hospital after he was shot multiple times, Malcom said. The ambulance took him the rest of the way, but Stanley died shortly after arriving at the hospital.

Malcom added that investigators know Stanley did not have a firearm and “was known” to Manning. It’s unclear whether more suspects are sought. 

Manning remains in the Newton County Jail without bond, according to online jail records. AJC.com has reached out to the sheriff’s office to request his mug shot.

The investigation remains active. Anyone with information is asked to contact Covington police at 770-786-7605.
