Ithaca Police investigating robbery with shots fired

The Ithaca Police Department says they responded to “multiple calls of shots fired” at about 10:40pm Saturday night at an apartment building in the 100 block of North Plain Street.

According to IPD Sergeant David Amaro, responding police officers “located evidence that gun shots had been fired within the building,” but there was no evidence that anyone was hit by the gunfire.

Two victims at the scene reported having been robbed by “two male suspects wearing masks and carrying long guns” who forced their way into the apartment. One victim reported being struck in the head with the butt end of a gun.

The victims reported that property was taken from the home, and suspects were last seen leaving the area northbound on North Plain Street in a red sedan.

IPD asks that anyone who has information that might aid their investigation contact them through police dispatch at 607-272-3245, the administration line at 607-272-9973, the Crimestoppers Tipline at 607-697-0333, the drug tipline at 607-330-0000, or the anonymous online tip form.
