Binghamton Shooting Suspect Arrested in Endwell
A Binghamton man has been charged with attempted murder in connection with a shooting in a city neighborhood.
Authorities said 28-year-old Christopher Frederick was arrested on Wednesday.
According to Binghamton police, Frederick was located at 1008 North McKinley Avenue in Endwell. He was taken into custody without incident.
Detectives said Frederick has been charged with second-degree attempted murder, second-degree criminal possession of a weapon and first-degree criminal use of a firearm.
Police said the arrest was made following an investigation into a shooting that occurred on Binghamton's North Side.
Officers were sent to 5 Sturges Street around 1 p.m. February 25 after people reported several shots had been fired. When police arrived, they found a 22-year-old man who had sustained a gunshot wound to the chest. The man was taken to a hospital for treatment of his injuries.
Investigators interviewed several people at the scene. No information was released about the circumstances surrounding the shooting or whether Frederick knew the man who was wounded.
Frederick was arraigned in Binghamton City Court and sent to Broome County Jail.
Binghamton police were assisted in locating Frederick by the Broome County Special Investigations Unit Task Force and the United States Marshals New York/New Jersey Fugitive Task Force.
The February shooting occurred across the street from where 12-year-old Cheri Lindsey was killed in 1984.
