COVINGTON COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

No charges have been filed yet in a shooting in Covington County early Monday morning that left one man dead. And investigators said it may have been a case of self-defense.

Covington County Sheriff's Dept. officials said it happened at 41 Estus Keyes Lane just after midnight Monday.

They said Justin Magee, 25, of Collins, allegedly shot Billy Keyes, 41, of Jackson, during an altercation. Magee was stabbed several times during the fight and a woman, Demetra Seals, 35, was also injured.

Keyes died at the scene.

"It is an ongoing investigation," said Terry Holbrook, Covington County Undersheriff. "At this time, we're looking at it being a self-defense shooting. But, we will prepare the case and we'll turn it over to the grand jury in January," he said.  

Both Magee and Seals were treated and released from the hospital.
