A Binghamton man convicted last month in the shooting death of an Elmira resident will serve at least 25 years in prison.

A Chemung County Court jury found Khalid Abdul-Wahhab, 34, guilty of second-degree murder and second-degree criminal possession of a weapon for the February 2021 killing of Shamal Gladden.

Chemung County Judge Richard W. Rich Jr. on Monday sentenced Abdul-Wahhab to 25 years to life in prison on the murder charge and 15 years on the weapon charge, to be served concurrently.

Abdul-Wahhab will also serve five years of post-release supervision.

Around 3:40 a.m. Feb. 27, 2021, Elmira police officers responded to reports of a shooting outside the Speedway convenience store at the corner of Madison and Maple avenues on the city's Southside.

An altercation outside the store led to the shooting, police said.

Gladden died from multiple gunshot wounds while undergoing emergency treatment at a local hospital, according to police.

Police said they believe two groups of people who knew each other got into a verbal altercation in front of the Speedway.

Gladden was not involved in the dispute at first, but intervened after he recognized a friend's daughter being verbally accosted by several men, police said.

Abdul-Wahhab was one of the men involved in the dispute, and police said that at some point he pulled out a handgun and shot Gladden.

Abdul-Wahhab has been incarcerated at the Chemung County Jail since his arrest.
