Man faces Orangeburg County judge on attempted murder charges on birthday

Michael Corbitt, 23

ORANGEBURG COUNTY, S.C. (WCBD) — An Orangeburg man has been charged with last week’s shooting incident in Springfield that sent one to the hospital with a gunshot wound.

Michael Corbitt, who turned 23 on Friday, was in court on his birthday to face charges of attempted murder and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.

Orangeburg County Magistrate Sam Daily set bond on the two charges at a combined $15,000 surety. Daily added a no contact order to be put in place should Glover make bond.

Corbitt had informed the court he was out on a $20,000 bond in Aiken County for a kidnapping charge levied against him in August 2015.

Orangeburg County Sheriff’s deputies were called to a Bowens Road residence in Springfield on June 11 after witnesses reported a man having been shot.

Witnesses said that just before 5 p.m. they noticed a red vehicle stop at a residence. The witnesses stated they then heard four or five gunshots ring out.

Investigating the gunshots, the witnesses said they stepped out of their homes and saw a man lying on the ground bleeding from his arm.

“Deputies arrived and spoke with the victim inside of the ambulance,” Sheriff Leroy Ravenell said. “The victim said he was doing yard work at a residence when a red Honda drove up immediately prior to his being shot.”

A motive in the shooting has not been determined as of yet.
