24 Bullet Casings Recovered from Binghamton West Side Shootout
Binghamton police have released descriptions of the four suspects being sought in connection with a West Side shootout.
Investigators say they found two-dozen 9mm bullet casings in the area of the shooting incident, which occurred around 2:50 p.m. Monday.
Police were sent to 121 Murray Street after residents heard gunfire. Witnesses reported seeing four suspects running from the area.
Two occupied homes and two unoccupied park cars were struck by bullets.
Detectives on Tuesday morning said all four suspects were African American males.
Two were described as thin and between 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall. They were seen running north on Murray Street and then west on North Street.
The other suspects were described as being 18 to 19 years old with unknown height. They fled in an unknown direction of travel.
Investigators have not indicated whether they believe any of those involved in the shootout were connected with Binghamton High School.
School principal Kevin Richman Monday evening announced classes would be held remotely "to ensure the safety of all" and to "assist with the investigation." He did not reveal whether the school closing was suggested by police.
