Elmira Man Charged With Attempted Murder

Recommended Posts

On Friday afternoon at approximately 2:45 PM Elmira Police Department Officers were dispatched to 267 W Chemung Place for a report of a stabbing.

When police arrived they located two victims on the front porch of the residence with multiple wounds. Officers developed information that the suspect was still in the residence. Once police were inside they learned that the suspect had retreated to a rear bedroom and was still armed with a knife. Officers were able to successfully negotiate with the suspect who was taken into custody without incident.

The victims in this case were both transported to area hospitals and are expected to recover.

As a result of this investigation 44 year old Michael G Burchard of Elmira was charged with Attempted Murder in the Second Degree, a class B Felony.

As of Friday evening Burchard was awaiting arraignment in Elmira City Court.

Anyone with further information regarding this incident is asked to please contact the Elmira Police Department at (607)737-5626, or the tip line at (607)271-HALT.
