Police Seek Man in Overnight Covington Shooting

Covington Police responded to the St. Elizabeth Medical Center on James Simpson Way overnight where a man was discovered with multiple gunshot wounds.

Before being transported to UC Medical Center in Cincinnati, the shooting victim told police that the gunman was Jared Liam Derkson. Now Covington Police are looking for Derkson, 25, who has an active warrant for his arrest out of Louisville.

Derkson also has multiple arrest records in Kenton County, most recently for marijuana possession and disregarding a traffic signal while having no license to operate a moped in April. He was previously sentenced for trafficking marijuana.

Derkson was last known to live on the 1200 block of Lee Street in Covington. Police say that he should be considered armed and dangerous.
