Police say they responded to a report of a domestic-related incident with injuries at about 8:20 a.m. One man was dead upon arrival.

The other three victims were taken to Wilson hospital.  Their conditions are not yet known.

While the investigation continues, Binghamton Police Chief Joseph Zikuski, wanting to ease concerns of residents who may be concerned for their safety, says police believe the stabbings were "isolated" and not a random act of violence.

At 9 a.m., police blocked off the portion of Leroy between Beethoven Street and Laurel Ave.
