Corin Corey was allegedly shot while leaving Elite Nightclub and the policewoman investigating the case was led to Troy Augustus. Apparently the shots came from a shooter in a vehicle and Mr Augustus was asked about the vehicle. He told the officer that the green Geo Prizm had taxi license plates, which are green, when in the fact the vehicle had private license plates which are a different color.
