Suspect Wanted In Weekend Shooting Near Covington

The St. Tammany Parish Sheriff's Office is looking for a 30-year-old Mount Hermon man they believe is responsible for a shooting over the weekend in the Abita Nursey subdivision near Covington.

Finney Riley is wanted for attempted second-degree murder.

Deputies were called to St. Tammany Parish Hospital Saturday night for a patient with a gunshot wound to the chest after reports of shots fired in the area of Eden and Spruce Streets.

The victim's car was also recovered, riddled with apparent bullet holes on the driver's side door, window, and rear quarter. 

The unnamed 23-year-old man is recovering after surgery.

STPSO says if you have any information about Riley's location, call 911.
