Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Binghamton Police removed a man from a home at 4 Roberts St. where they responded to a report of shots fired Wednesday afternoon.

"I heard pop, pop, pop so I got up and thought, 'What the hell was that?' said Heather Pasquale of Binghamton. "I look out of the window and I see a bunch of kids and they're saying, 'He's using his gun' and they started running that way towards the CVS."

The man made it across to a CVS store on West State and Chenango streets with the help of two people. Witnesses said the man then collapsed just outside the store before an ambulance arrived to take him to a hospital.

About a dozen Binghamton Police cars and a SWAT team arrived on Roberts Street near the intersection with Virgil Street. They focused on a home at 4 Roberts St. Police evacuated neighboring homes and told bystanders to go back into their homes.

The Theodore Roosevelt Elementary School on 9 Ogden Street delayed their dismissal by ten minutes because of their proximity to the shooting.

Reporters on the scene say a SWAT team entered the home some time after 2:30 p.m.
