Binghamton, N.Y. (WBNG Binghamton) The same day Binghamton police found a man shot to death on Mather Street, they arrested at least one man who they believe to be responsible.

Police announced Saturday afternoon the arrest of Trevis Johnson, 21. Johnson, according to police, was charged with second-degree murder. Although police said he has no permanent address, his booking photo provides a Brooklyn address.

Johnson was arraigned in Binghamton City Court and taken to the Broome County Jail without bail.

Police said they found Sergio Beldo, 27, of 3 1/2 Cary St., in Binghamton, dead inside an apartment at 30 Mather St.

Beldo was found just before 1 a.m., Friday, shot in the chest with what police only described as "a long gun."

Police said Friday morning they were looking for at least three black males, and possibly a fourth, who fled the scene in a car.

They did not provide more detailed descriptions.

Beldo did not live in the apartment where he was found. Police have not said why he was there.

An autopsy was performed on Beldo's body Friday morning. Those results haven't been released.

This is the second homicide in the city of Binghamton this year.

Binghamton Police Chief Joseph Zikuski said in a press release more arrests are expected. Police declined further comment.

Anyone with information is asked to call the department's detective division at (607) 772-7080.
