PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Pittsfield police are investigating an apparent homicide that took place late Sunday evening on Wellington Avenue.  

Police received several 911 calls shortly after 11:30 p.m. reporting gun shots and a man down in the middle of Wellington Avenue. Emergency personnel arrived at the scene and found 23-year-old Nikolas S. Carnute of Pittsfield lying in the street. 

Carnute was rushed to Berkshire Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead a short time later.

An autopsy, to determine the cause of death, will be conducted at the office of the chief medical examiner in Boston on Tuesday.
