Man awaits trial in shooting of father on Schuylkill Expressway

Judge lowers bail, formal arraignment set for June 10.

A 22-year-old man remains in jail after allegedly shooting his father in the face during a drive on the Schuylkill Expressway in Montgomery County.  

On Friday, Judge William I. Maruszczak lowered Corbin's bail to $250,000 from $500,000, which the suspect remains unable to pay, NBC 10 reports. 

On April 7, Kymere Corbin was riding in the back seat of a white 2010 Buick LaCrosse. His father, 42-year-old Elbert Corbin Jr, was driving his son to Malvern to receive treatment for drug and mental health issues at the Malvern Institute. Also in the car was Antoinette Bates, who sat in the passenger seat. 

Prosecutors say Kymere Corbin got into an argument with his father, eventually producing a handgun found in the vehicle, stating "Look what he gave me!" Though he initially denied responsibility, Kymer later admitted that he shot Elbert Corbin in the face on I-76 West near Spring Garden Street in West Conshohocken. 

Corbin was able to stop the car without hitting any other vehicles and was treated by paramedics at the scene before being taken to Penn Presbyterian Medical Center. He went on to survive the shooting, according to police. 

The 22-year-old remains held on 11 counts including aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, and carrying an unlicensed firearm. 

Judge Maruszczak said that Corbin is set to be formally arraigned on June 10.
