Suspects Still Sought in Killing on Binghamton’s West Side
Binghamton police have reported no arrests in a deadly drive-by shooting near an American Legion hall on Main Street.
Authorities say the man who was killed was 27-year-old Daequan Dickerson of Binghamton.
Investigators say Dickerson was shot while on a sidewalk near American Legion Post 80 at 76 Main Street.
Detectives say one or more suspects fired guns at Dickerson from a dark-colored sedan shortly after 4:30 a.m. Sunday. Witnesses reported hearing about five shots before the car raced away from the scene. It reportedly was last seen heading north on Walnut Street.
Three people are believed to have been in the vehicle. Police have not released the names of possible suspects in the shooting.
Dickerson was pronounced dead at Wilson Medical Center in Johnson City.
Candles and a Bible were placed in front of the American Legion building by people who gathered to mourn Dickerson's death Sunday evening.
