Police have arrested a suspect after a man was shot dead a few blocks from Cheri Lindsey Park in Binghamton, where an “evening” against crime was set to begin.

Binghamton resident Carheem Felton, 38, has been charged with attempted murder and criminal firearm possession, Mayor Jared Kraham said.

City police were dispatched to the Northside Deli & Grocery at 511 Chenango Street around 4 p.m. Tuesday after people in the neighborhood heard two gunshots.

When officers arrived, they found that a man had been injured once in his arm. The man – whose name has not been released – was taken to Wilson Medical Center in Johnson City by a Binghamton Fire Department ambulance. Authorities declined to discuss his condition or the extent of his injuries.

Kraham said in a post on Twitter Tuesday night that police officers “stopped a vehicle matching the suspect’s description” while responding to the call. He did not specify where the stop took place.

According to the mayor, police seized a “ghost gun” believed to have been used in the shooting.

Kraham gave no further details about the shooting, which took place about an hour before a “National Night Out” event was scheduled to begin at a nearby city park.
