U.S Marshall's Arrest Woman Wanted in Cortland Shooting Incident
A woman wanted in connection with a shooting on South Main Street at the end of August has been taken into custody in Virginia.
The U-S Marshall service has taken 26 year old Shanessa Pittman into custody. Pittman was picked up in New Port News Virginia on Tuesday. Pittman was arrested on a warrant for weapons possession.
Pittman who resided at 152 Main Street Cortland is accused of using a handgun to shoot 20 year old Jevon Sturridge during an argument outside her home at the end of August.
Sturridge sustained a gunshot wound to his left forearm; he was treated for the wound at the Cortland hospital and released.
Pittman is charged with felony counts of reckless endangerment, criminal possession of a weapon, and assault; she also charged with a misdemeanor count of prohibited use of a weapon.
Pittman was considered armed and dangerous; she has been arraigned on the Cortland charges and is being held in Virginia.
Cortland Police were unsure when Pittman may be extradited back to New York to face the charges here as the charges in Virginia would be prosecuted before she is returned to Cortland.
Police have not released a motive for the shooting.
