Pittsfield Man Pleads Guilty To Gun Charges In Wellington Ave Shooting

Staff Reports
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — A city man who was arrested in the killing of a 23-year-old man last December pleaded guilty Monday to weapons charges.

Kurt Hudson, 26, of Pittsfield pleaded guilty to single counts of illegal possession of a firearm, rifle or shotgun and possession of a firearm, rifle or shotgun with a prior conviction for a violent crime or serious drug offense.

He was sentenced by Judge John Agostini to three to four years at the Massachusetts Correctional Institution at Cedar Junction on the possession with a prior conviction charge and given concurrent two and a half to three year on the illegal possession charge.

Hudson was initially accused of murdering 23-year-old Nikolas S. Carnute on December 5, 2011 but a Grand Jury later found that he had acted in self-defense. A homicide charge was dropped because the jury found no probable cause but Hudson then faced weapons charges.

According to reports at the time, the Grand Jury found that Carnute had drawn a gun on Hudson while Hudson sat in a parked car. While backing out of the Wellington Avenue driveway, Hudson fired two shots out of the car window, the Grand Jury concluded. One of those shots hit Carnute in the head.

Hudson then fled to Columbia, S.C. where he was arrested three days after the shooting.
