    Four people have been removed from the building on stretchers and taken to hospitals. The Binghamton SWAT team is on the scene, along with a negotiator.

    The SWAT team is getting ready to re-enter the building. The shooter is still inside, police said.

    There are reportedly 41 hostages in the building -- 15 in a closet and 26 in the boiler room.

    Family members of the hostages and victims are gathering at 232 Main St. in Binghamton, scanner reports indicated.

    At least two ambulances from the scene have arrived at Wilson Regional Medical Center.

    Police began staging at Oak and Main Street, the site of the Binghamton High School, shortly after 10:30 a.m. today. Local apartments were evacuated and businesses, such as a nearby nursing home, were placed under lockdown as a precaution.

    One male was down with a woman shot in the stomach, according to a police radio. The female victim was a secretary.

    Police have since called for 10 ambulances.

    Binghamton Mayor Matthew Ryan, who was at the scene, said there was a hostage situation in the Civic Association building, located at 131 Front St. Ryan said the shooter has a high-powered rifle.

    Police were instructed not to go into the building alone.

    Binghamton High School is under a lock-down, the mayor said. The school is a block and a half away from the site.

    The suspect was described as an Asian male, between 5-feet 8-inches and 6 feet tall, wearing a bright green nylon jacket and dark-rimmed glasses. He's described as being in his 20s.

    Police shut down Main, North and Oak streets to respond to the incident, as well as Front Street at Gerard Avenue. The Memorial Bridge is also shut down, and police are taping off the corner of Front and North.

    The American Civic Association helps immigrants and refugees with immigration and personal counseling, resettlement, citizenship, family reunification and translators. It also intervenes with emergencies, including fighting, hunger and homelessness, according to information from the association's website.

    The ACA had citizenship classes scheduled for today.

    UPDATE


    At least twelve people are dead after a gunman went on a shooting spree inside the American Civic Association in Binghamton, according to preliminary information from state police.

    A federal law enforcement official who spoke on condition of anonymity told the Associated Press the shooter has been found dead in the building. The shooter has identification saying he was 42-year-old Jiverly Voong. The name is an alias that the man has used in the past, said the official.

    The law enforcement official said the gunman entered the building through the front while firing. He had already blocked the back door with his car. According to scanner reports, 1993 Toyota at the scene was registered to Henry Voong of Johnson City.

    The gunman had recently been let go from IBM, said Rep. Maurice Hinchey, whose district includes Binghamton. The gunman opened fire on a citizenship class, he told the Associated Press. “

    People were there in the process of being tested for their citizenship,

    Thank goodness it was not one of us perpetrating this it would be used against the movement as a whole. I bet that the OBL will try to spin it against us anyway. "He was under so much stress about the possibility of being deported." etc.
    I support enforcement and see its lack as bad for the 3rd World as well. Remittances are now mostly spent on consumption not production assets. Join our efforts to Secure America's Borders and End Illegal Immigration by Joining ALIPAC's E-Mail Alerts network (CLICK HERE)

    At least 4 shot, up to 41 taken hostage, in Binghamton, N.Y.

    At least 4 shot, up to 41 taken hostage, in Binghamton, N.Y.

    Updated 8m ago

    BINGHAMTON, N.Y. (AP) — A gunman entered an immigration services center in western New York state on Friday, shot at least four people and took as many as 41 hostage, according to media reports.
    Mayor Matthew Ryan told the Binghamton Press & Sun Bulletin that there was a hostage situation involving a gunman with a high-powered rifle.


    SHOOTING IN UPSTATE NEW YORK: Local coverage
    ON DEADLINE: Shooting, hostage situation in Binghamton, N.Y.

    The condition of the victims wasn't immediately clear. A Binghamton police dispatcher who spoke to The Associated Press wouldn't confirm a number of people shot or injured.

    The newspaper reported 41 hostages in the building of the American Civic Association in downtown Binghamton and said apartments were being evacuated.

    Emergency dispatchers were in contact with some people inside by phone, WBNG-TV reported. The gunman might still be in the building, the newspaper reported.

    Four people were removed from the building on stretchers and taken to hospitals, and 10 more ambulances were called, the newspaper reported. The Binghamton police commando team responded.

    Linda Miller, a spokeswoman at Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Binghamton, confirmed that a student from Binghamton University was being treated at the emergency room. Miller said she didn't know the nature of the injuries.

    "We're on full alert anticipating we're going to get additional casualties," Miller said.

    Police have locked down a nearby high school and advised local business owners to stay inside.

    People escaped to the basement of the building and more than a dozen people hid in a closet, WBNG reported.

    The American Civic Association describes itself as helping immigrants and refugees with counseling, resettlement, citizenship, family reunification and translators.

    It also intervenes with emergencies, including fighting, hunger and homelessness, according to information from the association's website.

    DEVELOPING: Several people were shot Friday and dozens of hostages taken at an immigration center in upstate New York.

    There may be some fatalities in the rampage at the American Civic Association in Binghamton, N.Y., but police declined to say whether that's the case.

    Binghamton Police told FOXNews.com that they couldn't confirm whether any of the shooting victims died and wouldn't give the number shot because it was still "an active scene."

    But a local hospital said they were treating at least five shooting victims.

    The five with gunshot wounds were at the local Wilson Medical Center, one in critical condition, hospital community relations vice president Christina Boyd told FOX News.

    SWAT team officers have surrounded the building but "they do not have it secured," a Binghamton police spokesman told FOXNews.com.

    The Associated Press reported that at least 4 people were shot and 41 were taken hostage.

    Hospital staff were in the process of notifying the families, according to Boyd. None of the victims were identified, and there were extra doctors and nurses there to handle the emergency, she said.

    Binghamton Mayor Matthew Ryan told the local Press & Sun Bulletin newspaper that the gunman had a high-powered rifle. The shooter was described by local media as an Asian male in a green jacket.

    Apartments and schools in the area have been evacuated or are on lockdown.

    The mayhem began about 10:30 a.m. EDT Friday.

    There were classes scheduled Friday at the immigration services center, located in the same town as Binghamton University, part of the State University of New York (SUNY).

    At least four people were taken from the building on stretchers and moved to hospitals, local media said.

    Emergency dispatchers were in contact with some people inside by phone, WBNG-TV reported. The gunman might still be in the building, the station reported.

    Four people were removed from the building on stretchers and taken to hospitals, and 10 more ambulances were called, the newspaper reported. The Binghamton police commando team responded.
