6 charged with fatal shooting in northern Ky

COVINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Four adults and two juveniles have been arrested and charged with taking part in the fatal drive-by shooting of a one-time high school football standout in northern Kentucky.

Covington Police Chief Spike Jones told The Kentucky Enquirer that 18-year-old Hassan Abdullah, 19-year-old Reginald Bates and 18-year-old Eugene Smith were arrested Tuesday night and held on murder charges. A fourth adult, 19-year-old Mikyle Holloway, has been charged with tampering with evidence. The names of the two juveniles were not released.

The arrests of the six stem from the death of 19-year-old Desean Peterson of Covington, who died Monday night at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

All four pleaded not guilty in court Wednesday. Jail records did not list an attorney for any of the men.
