I'm watching this live on FoxNews right now. They're saying Wilson Medical Center is treating 5 victims right now and at least 1 is in critical condition.

They're also saying the FBI is currently sending in hostage response negotiators as well as an evidence response team.

Eyewitness: "I work right across the street. I heard nothing. It must have been a silent approach. I did not hear the gunman enter the building firing" Also says she is not aware of any security at the building, and that Friday is normally the busiest day there. Civic Center has refugees from ALL countries. Says a police man came to the door of her building and confirmed to her that 13 are dead and the situation is far from over.

Report: Gunman blocked the door with his car to keep people from escaping (hasn't been confirmed)

ABC News: Reporting 13 people have been killed.

Fox News: Police are asking to bring in a Vietnamese translator.

Witness: No one is entering the building (medics, coroners, etc) at this time.

Reports of a suspect fleeing over the Court Street Bridge are coming across the police scanners. Have not been confirmed.

Anyone heard what is up with the bridge?? I couldn't understand what the lady was saying. I'm watching Fox News.

EDIT: I guess I was in the middle of posting when you answered Kaylynn, thanks!

You're welcome

I guess that Geraldo was on The Live Desk (on Fox News) asking the woman on the phone if she'd heard anything about "a suspect that has reportedly fled over the Court Street Bridge". He apparently heard it on a police scanner, and it hasn't been confirmed. The woman said she "wasn't sure".

Binghampton hospitals are reportedly calling in extra ER personnel to report to work.

Report: Law Enforcement is inside the building doing a sweep currently.

University says that they can confirm law enforcement did call and ask for several translators to come in. They will not confirm that those translators were Vietnamese translators.

Governor Patterson will be on location for the press conference.
