A man accused in Morris County of being involved in a drive-by shooting last year is also going through the court process in Lyon County for a related crime, although the local process is being delayed.

Corbin Henson, age 27, was set for a preliminary hearing in Lyon County District Court on Wednesday for charges of being a felon in possession of a firearm. That was moved to March 1 instead.

Henson had been arrested in late September after a warrant search in Americus led to the discovery of a handgun, according to court documents provided to KVOE News. Lyon County authorities say the gun may have been used in a drive-by shooting in Morris County on Sept. 20.

Morris County has charged Henson with two counts of aggravated assault, one count of aggravated battery, two counts of criminal discharge of a weapon and other charges in that case. Henson is also charged with marijuana and paraphernalia distribution; methamphetamine, marijuana and paraphernalia possession; and three counts of being a felon in possession of a firearm in a separate case also dating to Sept. 20. Hearings in those cases are both set for Feb. 1.
