Corbin Chase Winnington identified as suspect in shooting in Gloucester County

On Sunday, January 1, 2023, at approximately 1:05am the Gloucester County Emergency Communications Center was called by a citizen regarding a shooting in the 7800 Block of Guinea Road in the Hayes area of Gloucester. When deputies arrived, they discovered a large gathering of people at a residence.

An adult male was found to be deceased from an apparent gunshot wound outside the residence, and a second adult male was found suffering from a non-life-threatening gunshot wound. That male was transported to Riverside Regional Medical Center for treatment and was later released.

The Criminal Investigations Division responded to the scene and began to locate witnesses and physical evidence. The investigation has identified 15-year-old Corbin Chase Winnington of the 8900 Block of Cuba Road as a suspect in the shooting. Mr. Winnington departed the scene prior to the arrival of law enforcement. Petitions and a detention order have been filed against Mr. Winnington charging him with malicious wounding and use of a firearm in the commission of a felony. Additional charges will be forthcoming as the investigation continues. Mr. Winnington is currently at large and believed to be armed and dangerous.

A photograph of Corbin Chase Winnington is attached to this release. While it is not this agency’s normal practice to release the name or likeness of a juvenile suspect, the danger to the community and the need to safely take Mr. Winnington into custody makes this release necessary.
