Binghamton detectives are trying to find three men who were involved in a dispute on a downtown street that ended in gunfire.

Authorities said several rounds were fired from a handgun during a "brief verbal altercation" on Susquehanna Street just east of Carroll Street around 1:20 p.m. Saturday.

Investigators believe one man was aiming at another but the intended target apparently wasn't hit.

Those involved in the disturbance fled on foot. Police said the weapon used has not been found. A Binghamton canine unit was used to search the area for evidence shortly after the dispute.

The men involved in the incident were described as black, wearing dark-colored clothing and hoodies. At least one was armed with a handgun.

The shooting happened near the Yellow Deli at 121 Susquehanna Street. A man was critically injured on Easter Sunday when he was shot several times while inside a car parked near the business.

People with information about the shooting may contact Binghamton detectives at 607.772.7080.
