Suspect Arrested in Binghamton Antler Lodge Killing
A 30-year-old Binghamton man has been charged with murder in connection with a shooting death outside the Antler Lodge in the city.
Authorities say Joshua Taylor was found in the New York City area by the United States Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force. He was brought back to Binghamton Wednesday.
Detectives say Taylor is being charged with second-degree murder in the death of James High, who was shot in front of the Antler Lodge on Chenango Street shortly after midnight on July 24.
Investigators said Taylor would be arraigned in Binghamton City Court.
Police said people with information about the shooting may contact the city police detective bureau at 607.772.7080.
Binghamton Mayor Richard David on Tuesday said he expected the owners of the Antler Lodge to meet with city attorneys within the next week to discuss a series of incidents at the establishment.
David said the city is preparing to move forward with the Lockdown Law process if the problems associated with the Antler Lodge are not adequately addressed.
The mayor also said the New York State Liquor Authority is reviewing the recent homicide and other trouble at the private club. He said it's possible the state will pull the establishment's liquor license following its investigation.
