Ithaca, NY (WBNG Binghamton) An Ithaca man is arrested for his role in a shooting that happened exactly nine months ago.

Jamel Booker, 22 was arrested yesterday after investigators learned he was in a local hotel.

He was wanted since June on an indictment in connection to a shooting that happened in the 500 block of West Green Street on April 9, 2011.

Investigators say he left the area, and went to Florida to hide.

On Wednesday, Ithaca Police were told he was back in the area, possibly staying with a guest in a hotel on Seneca Street.

Booker was arrested without any problems.

He's in the County jail, and was due in court today.
