Apartment Shooting Leaves Man Dead, Woman Hospitalized

"MIAMI, FL — One man is dead, a woman hospitalized, after a double shooting in a Miami apartment early Wednesday morning.

"Police were called to the apartment at 302 NW 22nd Street around 3:30 a.m.

"While police have not identified the couple their family members told [reporters] Nakia Covington, 37, shot his fiance Kentraniece Lovest Brown before he turned the gun on himself.

"`That’s the worst phone call I could ever get,` said Brown’s sister Elisha Lovest Brown. `It’s just the worst phone call you can ever get.`

"Covington and Brown had reportedly been together for eight years and had a three old year son.

"Brown said she had no idea what led up to Covington lashing out like he did.

"`He hit her with the gun, shot her in the leg and then killed himself,` said Brown. `I don’t know. I don’t know. I don’t know what made him do that.`

"The couple’s son was inside the apartment at the time of the shooting, according to Brown along with her 11-year old son and Kentraniece’s 13-year old daughter. The children were not injured."
