Binghamton after-hours club closes after lockdown warning

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. - The after-hours nightclub where a recent murder in Binghamton took place has agreed to shut down operations after receiving a lockdown warning from the City of Binghamton.

Mayor Rich David made the announcement on Friday.

David announced Thursday that he sent a lockdown warning letter to J&N Realty, the listed owners of 56 Orton Avenue, also listed as 221 Main Street according to property tax records.

On April 22nd, police responded to an after hours club at 56 Orton where they found 22-year old Brandon Hernandez who later died from multiple gunshot wounds.

Police have arrested 26-year old Jihad Ray of Binghamton and charged him with 2nd degree murder.

“Our lockdown warning had an immediate effect on this after-hours club. It should be a lesson to other individuals wanting to operate in the shadows and organize venues for criminal activity," said David in a written statement.
