James “Pip” Marshall — who was formerly a person of interest in the shooting — is now charged with first-degree assault, according to Ithaca police. A warrant has been issued for Marshall’s arrest.

On June 27, officers were called around 3:28 a.m. to an apartment at 150 West Village Place where they found a man with a gunshot wound in his leg. Officers applied a tourniquet to the injury and the man was taken to a hospital.

Marshall and Rashid Ali Brown were listed as persons of interest in the shooting, said Officer Jamie Williamson.

He clarified Wednesday morning that Brown has not been charged in the shooting, though he is currently in jail after being taken into custody on warrants for: felony third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, felony second-degree burglary, misdemeanor second-degree criminal contempt and two violations for second-degree harassment.

It’s unclear whether the gun used in the shooting has been found.
