The Tompkins County Sheriff’s Office, Cayuga Heights Police Department, Ithaca Police Department, Cornell University Police, and the New York State Police have concluded their search for the 3rd suspect involved in the shots fired complaint in the 600 block of Hancock Street in the City of Ithaca.
As previously reported, two of the three suspects were captured after the vehicle they were operating left the roadway in the area of The Parkway and Klinewoods Road in the Village of Cayuga Heights.
The above agencies immediately established a command post within the village and conducted a vast and thorough search where the 3rd suspect was believed to possibly be.
A search was conducted by members of the Ithaca-Tompkins Specialized Response Team in conjunction with K9 units from multiple agencies, and air support provided by the New York State Police.
At the time of this release, law enforcement officials believe that the suspect has left the area of Cayuga Heights.
Since this incident most likely occurred between two groups known to each other, officials do not believe the suspect poses an immediate threat to residents. His identity and whereabouts continue to be investigated.
During the village search, officers located a handgun in the area where the 3rd suspect had fled. Officers also located several shell casings at the scene of the shots fired incident in the City of Ithaca.
A loaded extended magazine was recovered from within the vehicle. The operator of the vehicle has been identified as Trimard Chris Campbell, age 22, from Utica, NY. The 2nd suspect has been identified as Ramello Quayshawn Jackson, age 22, of Ithaca, NY.
Charges on these two suspects are still being drafted at this time.
All agencies strongly urge people within the community to come forward with any information involving this incident.
Witnesses to the shots fired incident on Hancock St. are asked to contact the Ithaca Police Department.
Those believed to have witnessed the 3 rd suspect in the Village of Cayuga Heights are asked to contact either the Cayuga Heights Police Department or the Tompkins County Sheriff’s Office.
