Assault charge filed in Camden County shooting


A Gravois Mills man was charged with assault and armed criminal action in a Thursday shooting in Sunrise Beach.

Corbin L. Everitt is accused of shooting another man in the armpit during a fight early Thursday in the victim's front yard. Deputies found Everitt hiding in a room in a salon, according to a probable cause statement. Everitt's mother and grandmother were at the salon and initially told deputies they had not seen him, according to the statement.

Everitt's grandmother then told investigators that she had given him a ride that morning, the statement says. The woman reportedly said Everitt was with her in her vehicle when deputies arrived and that he hid the gun in her glovebox.

Everitt admitted to fighting the victim but said he did not have a gun, according to the statement.

He was jailed in Camden County without bond. An initial court appearance is scheduled for Monday.
