One person shot in Tompkins County; Troopers investigate Newfield scene

Police are investigating a shooting, which took place near an apartment in Newfield on Sunday.

Troopers in Ithaca responded to a ‘shots-fired’ call at a parking lot of an apartment house on Shaffer Road. When they arrived, they learned that a male victim had been taken to Cayuga Medical Center with a gunshot wound to his back.

That victim was later taken to Upstate University Hospital. However, his injuries are not considered ‘life-threatening’ by medical personnel at Upstate.

Troopers are searching for a dark-colored SUV, which was last seen leaving the area shortly before the shooting. It was traveling south on Shaffer Road, according to police.

Anyone with information should call (607) 347-4440. Callers can remain anonymous.
