A Covington domestic dispute turned into a shooting and then a fire at a mobile home park overnight, police officials said.
Officers were called to 4543 Amber Drive at 12:45 a.m. Monday after receiving a report of a man, 32, shot in the arm during a domestic violence incident, said Covington Assistant Police Chief Bryan Carter.
When police tried to make contact with the man they thought might be responsible, he retreated into his trailer and set it on fire, according to Covington Police.
He tried to escape but was apprehended by officers.
A small child was in the trailer and rescued on scene, police said.
The fire was quickly put out, but the trailer is considered a total loss.
