The Binghamton man who was shot while allegedly fleeing Albany police officers last week was arraigned in his hospital bed Monday.
Ellazar Williams, 19, is charged with menacing a police officer — a felony — and possession of a weapon.
Police say Williams was shot last Monday after police responded to a call for a fight on Central Avenue, with reports of a weapon involved.
Williams ran through the back of West Hill Middle School, where he was shot.
Police say a knife was found at the scene, believed to be Williams'.
Dr. Alice Green of the Center for Law and Justice says she heard from his girlfriend that Williams is paralyzed from the waist down.
Green has criticized the police for what she calls a lack of information regarding the incident.
The Albany Police Department is standing by the officers involved, though an investigation remains open.
