PITTSFIELD, Mass. — A 17-year-old man was shot at the intersection of First and Tyler Streets on Monday morning.

One juvenile has been arrested and charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and discharging a firearm within 500 feet of a dwelling.

Police have not released the name of the suspects or the victim.

Police say officers responded to the reports of shots being fired shortly before 9 a.m. A nearby ambulance was "flagged down" and a 17-year-old victim was taken to nearby Berkshire Medical Center, where he underwent surgery.
 
Police, with the Berkshire County sheriff's department and state police, launched a search for two suspects who had fled on foot.
 
According to scanner reports, a K-9 unit was asked to meet with state police near the scene for an article search at about 10:30 a.m.
 
The O'Connell's convenience store and gas station at that intersection was roped off with police tape and closed for several hours; a section of nearby Bradford Street was also blocked off.
 
On Stoddard Avenue, police were outside of a green and white duplex where the porch, too, had been roped off. Possible witnesses were being interviewed near the home.
 
Police believe at least two more people were involved in the shooting and are asking any one with information to contact the Detective Bureau at 413-448-9705.
