The Nephew of PNCR leader Robert Corbin was among two persons shot during an attempt to burglarize an East Coast Demerara gas station.
He was supposed to be at home preparing for school the following day but instead, 17-year-old Junior Corbin of Sophia, and two associates went up to Good Hope, Mahaica, on the East Coast of Demerara, with the intention of robbing a Guyoil Fuel Outlet early yesterday morning.
Their plans however went awry, and Corbin along with 33-year-old ex-policeman Shawn St. Clair, also of Sophia, who was the intended getaway driver, ended up being shot by the proprietors of the facility.
And quite like his uncle Junior Corbin proclaimed his innocence. Claiming that he was standing on the road when he was confronted by some men.
When asked what he was doing in the Mahaica area at that time of the night, he said that he had visited an aunt who resides in the East Coast Demerara village.
But his mother Debra Corbin said that her son had no aunt living in the Mahaica area.
Junior Corbin also claimed that he had left his home around 18:00 hours on Monday, but his mother disputed this explaining that she had seen her son at home sometime before midnight on Monday.
“A police call me this morning and ask me if Junior Corbin is me son and I said yes. De police say that he get shoot in Mahaica,” Debra Corbin said, adding that she was surprised that her son was that far away from home.
