Man Indicted in Easter Shooting in Downtown Binghamton
A suspect in the shooting of a Binghamton man as he sat in a car on a downtown street on Easter Sunday has been indicted on attempted murder and other charges.
Prosecutors say 23-year-old Travon Sanders of Brooklyn was named in the three-count indictment handed up by a Broome County grand jury.
In addition to second-degree attempted murder, Sanders was indicted for first-degree assault and second-degree criminal possession of a weapon.
Police apprehended Sanders in Endicott, two days after 40-year-old Grady Hunter was critically injured when he was shot near 121 Susquehanna Street.
Investigators said Hunter had been sitting in a vehicle parked near the Yellow Deli store.
According to the indictment, Sanders is accused of using a 9-millimeter semi-automatic handgun to shoot Hunter on April 1.
The Binghamton shooting happened on Easter morning, about five hours after three people were shot on Crocker Avenue in Johnson City. A woman died as a result of the first incident.
Detectives have said the two shootings were not related.
