Clifton E. Bibbins, 38, of Utica, was arrested last week in connection with a home invasion shooting from earlier this month in the town of Lansing.

On Thursday (October 21), the Tompkins County Sheriff’s Office took him into custody without incident.

The department’s Specialized Response Team (SRT) was deployed in order to ensure things went safely.

A 31 year-old male was treated and released from a nearby trauma center for a gunshot wound to his foot; along with minor lacerations on his head.

According to the victim, two subjects rushed him immediately when he opened his apartment door at around 11 pm that night.

Bibbins was remanded to Tompkins County Jail without bail.
