Police make two arrests in separate homicide cases

Police arrested two homicide suspects this week, one a juvenile suspected in a Bayview slaying and the other a 23-year-old suspected of killing a man who tried to break up a fight outside a Mission Bay nightclub.

The victim in the second homicide, 34-year-old Clarence Corbin, was gunned down while trying to break up a group of men fighting outside Jelly’s, a cafe and live music venue located at 295Terry A. Francois Blvd. Police said suspect Mario Hollister, 23, shot the man three times. Corbin died at San Francisco General Hospital hours later.

According to police Sgt. Steve Mannina, police obtained a court-ordered $2 million warrant for Hollister, of Richmond. On Tuesday, officers arrested him at a home on Ridgeview Terrace in Hercules.

The club’s owner, Clarice Lacau, said the group was standing across the street, closer to the Cirque de Soleil circus tent than to Jelly’s when the shooting occurred. She said police are currently looking over security footage captured inside the bar area to see if the homicide was the result of an earlier dispute.

Hollister had yet to be transported to San Francisco as of Wednesday afternoon and police have not added any other charges on top of murder. According to El Cerrito police, Hollister was arrested on June 11, 2005, at Eureka and Ashbury avenues on suspicion of robbery with a gun.

On the same day of Corbin’s death, San Francisco police arrested a 17-year-old suspected in The City’s 97th homicide of 2007. The unnamed juvenile is charged with the Dec. 17 killing of Dewayne Larry, 24. Police found Larry lying near the 100 block of Kiska road. He died later at San Francisco General Hospital of gunshot wounds.
