Two Arrested After Binghamton Shooting Incident
A residential neighborhood on Binghamton's West Side near Recreation Park was sealed off by police following a reported gunshot.
Authorities say two men face charges after an investigation into a disturbance at a two-family home on Beethoven Street.
Marked and unmarked city police units flooded the area after a gun was fired and a woman was heard yelling in the area of 121 Beethoven Street around 6:10 p.m. Thursday.
Police surrounded the house and set up a perimeter as they worked to determine what had happened.
Investigators say a first-floor resident, 37-year-old Dashay VanDuyne Sr. is suspected of firing one shot from a shotgun in a staircase. He had fled the house and was taken into custody when he returned to the scene. VanDuyne has been charged with first-degree reckless endangerment. The shotgun has not been recovered.
Police say 22-year-old Quashawn Hollenquest, who lived on the second floor, was charged with third-degree assault. He is accused of striking a 27-year-old woman in the face, causing a laceration to her lip.
Hollenquest also was charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance because police found some cocaine in his apartment.
VanDuyne and Hollenquest were arraigned in Binghamton city court and sent to Broome County Jail.
