Pittsfield police searching for shooting suspect

PITTSFIELD, Mass. (NEWS10) - Pittsfield Police responded to a ShotSpotter activation and multiple callers of shots fired in the area of 54 Spring Street late Saturday night.

Upon arrival, officers spoke with a 38 year old male who had sustained a minor injury resulting from a projectile grazing his leg. His injuries appeared to be non-life threatening.

Witnesses described the suspect as a white male, approximately 6 feet tall, wearing a dark colored jacket.

The suspect then fled southbound on Spring Street. A subsequent K9 track located a firearm and other evidence discarded by the suspect.

Surveillance video was also collected. This appears to be an isolated incident.

The investigation is ongoing and anyone with any information regarding this incident is requested to contact the Pittsfield Police at 413-448-9705.

Information can also be provided anonymously via the Detective Bureau, the Drug Tips hotline at 413-448-9708.
