The shooting occurred on Chenango Street, three blocks north of the Interstate 81 bridge where a repair project has resulted in a closure to vehicular traffic for nearly 11 months.

Police and ambulances must use a detour to reach the North Side neighborhood, which can slow their response to emergencies.
