Accused shooter bound over to grand jury after judge watches video of slaying

The case of a man accused of shooting and killing a 19-year-old amidst a brawl between a group of teenage girls has been bound over to the Hamilton County Grand Jury after the judge watched a cell phone video of the man’s slaying.

General Sessions Judge Clarence Shattuck upped accused killer Lathe Corbin’s charges from criminal homicide to first degree murder after reviewing footage recorded during the Sept. 12 incident.

The video depicts a large group of girls shouting and fighting on Southern Street in the Harriet Tubman housing development. In the midst of the brawl, a man identified as Corbin was recorded firing a handgun at Aundre Bush and running away as Bush falls to the pavement.

Bush died from gunshot wounds to his head and chest, according to Chattanooga Police.

Defense attorney Martin Levitt maintained that Corbin drew the gun in self defense after Bush had fired a gun in his direction.

It is amazing how a video of a crime works in court.

I have presented a good number of such and the judges' reactions were the same -- essentially, "Book 'em, Dan'l".

Made my whole day, every time. The bad guy sucks it up.

Just thinking about Judge Shattuck's action puts a smile on my face. Thanks, Judge.

@ tnvolssuckbad: The only thing that your comment. There are plenty of crimes being committed by crazy people of all races. So no, all blacks are not on public assistance and no all whites are not on meth. Stop stereotyping and read the story for what it is. This person is old enough to be held accountable himself, so take his parents off trial. If we judged yours by your comment, they didn't teach you much about respect.

@tnvolssuckbad: You realize that you're comment had nothing to do with the article right? You just ignorantly decided that you wanted to post you're own racist remarks and used this article as a means to do it. Very sad.

Well said nothingbutthetruth. Tnvolssucked the anger you are expressing is not uncommon for someone who has been lead to believe America's high crime rate is caused by Black Americans or drug testing is the solution to reducing the number of Americans recieving government assistance. Black Americans make up roughly 13% of the American population; around 37 million people. Black Americans spend power is approximate 857 billion dollars according to the 2010 census and contributes to just 26% of America's poverty population. What this means is America's problems is not Black lead. According to the Census Bureau approximately 61% White Americans recieves welfare assistance compared to the 33% for Blacks.

per capita, there are more blacks on welfare than whites, dont even try that BS, and most of the crime is related to the black population, whites steal to support crack habits that the blacks created when the blacks introduced crack to the world, watch tv its mostly blacks that rape and murder as well, and the 857 billion STOLEN dollars

@ DennyD123: There is no denying that the black community is not engulfed with crime, you earned your metal! The point is "wise guy" that it's right in your neighborhood as well "Andy Griffith". And to say that whites only steal to support crack addictions, stop with your stereotypical thinking will you. At the end of the day, white or black, crime is crime! By the way, IF whites were #1 on the welfare recipient list, would your opinion change? Of course not! Run along and post your stereotypical views on the next post.

My point here is not to create a Black versus White environment. DennyD123 there no truth to your comments. People like you are a problemm globally. Racism and white supremacy has accomplished nothing in history other than to help destroy the world. You find fault in every race except your own. This is a historical fact. It a shame that America can never truly be rid of bigotry and stereotype behavior. I serve in the military now for 23 years and have helped fight it's wars. As a Black American, I find it shameful when I read such distasteful comments that truly have no bases for nothing more than hate.
