Binghamton police say a 19-year-old man who was shot on Independence Day has died.

Investigators had said Scott Wright Jr. had been wounded in the abdomen Friday night.

Wright initially had been listed in critical condition at Wilson Medical Center.

The shooting occurred during a disturbance at Town and Country Apartments on Roberts Street. Another 19-year-old man involved in the dispute was hurt when he was hit on the head with a glass bottle.

 

Authorities say 21-year-old Andre Lee of Binghamton was taken into custody the following morning after he was found hiding in an attic in a house on Griswold Street.

Lee had been charged with attempted murder, assault and criminal possession of a weapon.

A second arrest was made in connection with the investigation. Police say 21-year-old Tichelle Bethea of Binghamton was charged with hindering prosecution.
