Police said two individuals appear to be black men and one appears to be a Hispanic man carrying a plastic shopping bag. It also appears all three were using their cell phones.

If anyone recognizes these men, you are asked to call Binghamton police at (607)772-7080.

Emergency responders were called just before 4:20 p.m. Friday to the 200 block of Court Street for a man who was bleeding on the ground.

Binghamton police said the stabbing happened in the parking lot of the Broome County Library.

The crime scene stretched further down Court Street, and reporters on the scene said crime tape was seen at the Phelps Mansion and near the Broome County Library. Authorities on the scene said those areas were roped off because of an apparent blood trail.
