The suspect, 22-year-old Souljah Corbin of Fairfield, had allegedly walked into a local emergency room for treatment of a non-life threatening gunshot wound. 

He was arrested and booked on charges of murder and attempted murder. 

A man who said he witnessed the shooting described the scene to KRON4 on the condition of anonymity due to safety concerns, saying “I was about maybe 100 yards away.. it got louder.. I turned around.. and there’s a bunch of people.. 7, 8, 9 people… they were arguing.. I heard it was two girls… [then] bam bam bam bam….” 

That’s when he said he ran across the street and picked up a rock, throwing it at a car that was reportedly involved.

He said someone inside the car then fired shots at him. 

A Mustang that was reportedly involved in the shooting is currently being towed away as the investigation continues. 

Police say they will be reviewing surveillance video from the gas station.
