Pittsfield Police remained tight-lipped throughout the day about a shooting that occurred in the vicinity of Memorial Drive near Wahconah Street this morning.

As of Tuesday afternoon, details surrounding the shooting, which occurred sometime before 5 a.m. Tuesday, remain sparse. Investigators would not divulge the identity of the 40-year-old man who was shot in the chest.

"It's a shooting, it's still under investigation, and that's all we're going to release at this time," said Lt. Michael Grady of the Detectives Bureau.

Police Chief Michael Wynn told The Berkshire Eagle that the victim had given his assailant's first name but information on the shooting, including the time and place, weren't matching what investigagors were finding.

Representatives of Berkshire Medical Center, where the victim was taken, said they were unable to disclose any information about the man's condition.


PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Pittsfield Police were called to Memorial Drive off Wahconah Street around 4:45 a.m. on Tuesday, after getting a call that a man had been shot in the chest.

Few details are known at this time but according to broadcast reports, police responded to the scene and found a man described to be in his early 40s, with a possible gunshot wound in the chest. The victim was transported to Berkshire Medical Center for evaluation. Nothing more was known about the victim.

Police were reportedly looking for a possible male suspect and had some footprints and tire tracks in the fresh snow to look at, but nothing further has been released.
