Woman Shot in Parked Car in Downtown Binghamton
Binghamton police say a woman was wounded in a drive-by shooting on a downtown street.
Authorities say the attack occurred around 4:20 a.m. Sunday in front of 66 Chenango Street.
Detective Captain John Ryan said a 19-year-old Johnson City woman was wounded in the upper arm. She was a passenger in a parked vehicle when someone in a passing vehicle fired multiple shots from a handgun.
Ryan said the woman was taken to a hospital for treatment of what he described as "non-life-threatening injuries."
A man who was in the driver's seat of the parked vehicle was not injured in the incident. The vehicle sustained damage as a result of the shooting.
Ryan said the shooter was believed to have been in a grayish or light-colored Chevrolet sport utility vehicle which was last seen heading north on Chenango Street toward the bus station.
The suspect vehicle was occupied by the shooter and at least one other person.
The shooting scene is just north of the United Presbyterian Church of Binghamton, which is located at 42 Chenango Street.
