Easter's Susquehanna Street Shooting UpdatePosted: Updated:
Monday, Binghamton Detectives released information regarding the shooting incident that occurred at 121 Susquehanna Street, outside the Yellow Deli late Sunday morning.
Investigators determined that a lone gunman, traveling on foot, approached a single man sitting inside a parked car in front of the Deli and fired numerous rounds from a handgun. Several rounds hit the victim, 40-year-old Grady Hunter of Binghamton, before the suspect fled the scene.
Hunter was transported to a nearby hospital by a third party, inside a private vehicle, where he received emergency medical treatment. Police said Hunter sustained life-threatening injuries and has been hospitalized in critical condition.
A portion of Susquehanna Street was closed off for several hours, while police and detectives investigated the scene. While speaking to witnesses and monitoring the scene of the crime, Binghamton Detectives determined that this was not a random act, but directed specifically toward Hunter.
The suspect was described as a younger black male, wearing a black hoodie, black athletic pants, and black footwear.
The investigation is still ongoing and the Binghamton Police Department is urging anyone with information to contact the Binghamton Police Detective Division at (607) 772-7080.
