State police: Ithaca man fatally shot at home, investigation underway

The New York State Police are actively investigating the tragic death of 46-year-old Terence L. Johnson, who was found with a fatal gunshot wound to the head in his apartment on Game Farm Road, Ithaca, on the morning of January 28. The details surrounding the shooting remain scarce as authorities continue their investigation without a suspect description at this stage.


The community has been shaken by the news, with Johnson’s death being mourned at a service scheduled at the Southside Community Center. His family, expressing their grief on social media, highlighted Johnson’s love for his children and his positive spirit. The delay in the public announcement of Johnson’s death has raised questions and frustration among his loved ones, particularly his widow, Kasiah Johnson, who is seeking answers and has announced plans to set up a GoFundMe to support their children.

State police urge anyone with information related to Terence L. Johnson’s death to come forward and contact the Bureau of Criminal Investigation. The lack of details and the delayed announcement have left the family and the community looking for closure and justice for Johnson.
