TICONDEROGA — A suspect is still at large after a shooting Friday night that sent one man to the hospital for treatment.
Ticonderoga Police Chief Mark Johns says the public is not considered to be in danger, as the incident is believed to be domestic in nature.
Ticonderoga Police responded to the shooting at about 10:45 p.m. at 105 Montcalm St., where they said a man was shot in both feet, according to a witness statement. Police said Jimmy Joe St. Andrews, 45, of Putnam, N.Y., shot into a crowd of six people standing outside an apartment building on Montcalm Street, striking one person.
Police said the victim was initially taken to Moses Ludington Hospital in Ticonderoga for treatment. He was later transferred to Albany Medical Center, where he was treated and released.
St. Andrews was seen fleeing the scene on foot shortly after the incident. He was last seen heading north from the crime scene.
He is described as 6 feet tall, 175 pounds, with brown hair and hazel eyes.
The 45-year-old victim, whose name has yet to be released by police, was initially transported to Moses Ludington Hospital in Ticonderoga. He was then transferred to Albany Medical Center, where he was treated for gunshot wounds and was released.
The Ticonderoga Police Department is being assisted by the New York State Police, the Essex County Sheriff’s Department and the Washington County Sheriff’s Department. A State Police aviation unit and K-9 units from numerous agencies are assisting in the search for St. Andrews.
