An “armed and dangerous” man who may have shot another man in the groin and buttocks Oct. 14 after arguing over a girl is still at large, Ithaca Police say.
Leads are fading as police continue to search for an 18-year-old, 6’0″ black male with the alias Biggum, according to Jamie Williamson, public information officer for the Ithaca Police Department. On the evening of Oct. 14, Biggum allegedly shot a 21-year-old man after they had an argument over a girl — leaving the man injured and lying on the ground on South Plain Street.
The male victim was conscious when police found him, and he was transported to a trauma center for surgery. He did not provide information to police about what might have provoked the shooting.
“Without speaking to the suspect, it is impossible to know what exactly led to the shooting. We’d really like to locate [Biggum], but we’re not sure about his exact whereabouts right now,” Williamson said. “Any help the public can provide in locating him would be great.”
Biggum has tattoos on his left arm and weighs approximately 185 pounds, according to police. Police ask anyone who sees him to call the IPD.
