The Ithaca Police Department is currently investigating a shooting at an apartment complex at 400 Lake Avenue, according to a press release.
On Friday, March 9, at 1:38 a.m., officers responded to a 911 call saying that a single male victim had been shot inside the residence. IPD is currently looking for two suspects in relation to the shooting.
The victim was “alert and conscious,” according to the release, and was transported to a regional trauma center Friday morning. He is currently in stable condition.
IPD is on an ongoing hunt for the two suspects, who were described by witnesses on the scene. The first suspect, according to the release, was a black man with a slim build, approximately 5-foot-9-inches tall. He had a “light to medium complexion” and was wearing a black sweatsuit with the hood strings drawn tight.
The second suspect was a black man with a large build, approximately 6-foot-1-inches tall, with a “dark complexion”, according to the release. He was wearing a light-colored hooded sweatshirt.
IPD does not believe that this was a random incident, and urged anyone with information related to the shooting to call the department at 607-272-3245.
