A suspect captured in New York following a shooting in Wilkes-Barre earlier this month has been extradited.
Binghamton police said they arrested Sherman W. Wilborne, 30, on Sept. 2 for giving officers false identification. Once police learned Wilborne’s true identity, they lodged him without bail at Broome County Jail on a fugitive warrant out of Pennsylvania for the shooting.
Wilborne was arraigned in Wilkes-Barre on Friday before Magisterial District Judge Martin Kane and jailed at the Luzerne County Correctional Facility in lieu of $250,000 straight cash bail. His preliminary hearing is scheduled for 10 a.m. Oct. 9 before Kane.
