Binghamton Teen Gets 10 Years in JC Shooting

Posted: Updated:

The 17-year-old who pleaded guilty to attempted murder in the September 2018 shooting on Willow Street in Johnson City was sentenced to 10 years prison and five years parole, according to the Broome County District Attorney's Office.

Police arrested Dyjuwan Gadson of Binghamton shortly after responding to the report of multiple gunshots fired in the area of 28 Willow Street. He was 16 at the time.

Authorities say Gadson struck a female in the chest but was trying to kill 18-year-old Xavier Melendez. Police arrested Melendez three days later on September 19, 2018.

Police say the Willow Street shooting was connected to a fatal shooting that took place 11 hours earlier on Main Street in the City of Binghamton.

A Broome County grand jury indicted Gadson in November 2018. He pleaded guilty on February 25, 2019.
