Binghamton Man Charged with Attempted Murder in Shooting
A man suspected of shooting a person in the head in Binghamton has been arrested.
Authorities say 40-year-old Preston Golden of 12 Wilson Street turned himself in at city police headquarters Saturday morning.
Detectives had been searching for Golden since a man was shot in the head in Golden's apartment building in the First Ward early Thursday morning.
Investigators say the wounded man - 23-year-old Tyheem Carpenter of Johnson City - remains hospitalized at Wilson Medical Center. Police initially said Carpenter had sustained a "life-threatening gunshot wound" and that he was listed in critical condition.
Authorities now say Carpenter is expected to survive. They did not release his current condition.
Golden had been charged with second-degree attempted murder. He was being held in the Binghamton police lockup awaiting arraignment.
Detectives say they believe Golden shot with a handgun during a dispute. They have not indicated whether the weapon has been recovered.
