Once officers arrived and attempted to apprehend him, a foot pursuit ensued. A perimeter was established with the help of other law enforcement and Voshon Carpenter, age 28, was taken into custody.


The 28-year-old was arrested on two felony weapons charges, as well as an assault and obstruction charge. He was remanded to the Tompkins County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bond.

Police said Carpenter is a convicted felon who did not have a valid pistol permit.

He will appear in city court on the charges at a later date.
