PITTSFIELD, Mass. — A 22-year-old woman has died from injuries incurred in a late-night shooting Monday.

The District Attorney's office said Asiyanna Jones died after being shot in the area of 242 Dewey Ave. Monday night, shortly before 11 p.m. Jones was found inside a motor vehicle suffering from a gunshot wound. She was transported to Berkshire Medical Center first and then flown to Baystate Medical Center in Springfield.
 
She was pronounced dead at about 4 a.m. on Tuesday. An autopsy will be performed Wednesday.
 
There were reports of shots fired near Dewey Avenue and Linden Streets shortly before 11 p.m. and that one of the shots had gone through the windshield of a car. The driver apparently took the injured individual immediately to Berkshire Medical Center, according to scanner reports. Channel 10 News reported at about 7 a.m. that a woman had been killed and the victim's age.
 
Dewey Avenue had been blocked off by police on Monday night and into Tuesday morning. No further information was immediately available.
 
Police are continuing to investigate the circumstances leading up to the death of Jones and ask anyone who may have information to contact the Pittsfield Police Department Detective Bureau at 413-448-9705.
