The O'Connell's convenience  store was closed Monday morning while police investigated.

UPDATED: Tuesday, August 19 at 9:24 a.m.

Police say they are no longer searching for another suspect. However, they are still looking for witnesses.

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.

Adams Structure Fire Contained; Pets Rescued

By Jack Guerino
iBerkshires Staff
Adams firefighters were on the scene of a structure fire early Sunday morning on Water Street.

ADAMS, Mass. — Firefighters swiftly contained a house fire early Sunday morning, saving more than a dozen pets.

The Fire Department responded to the report of a structure fire at 2:30 a.m. at 27 Water St.

Heavy smoke could be seen coming from the back of the two-story house, and some witnesses said flames were visible.

"The first arriving units were on the scene within three minutes, and the external fire was knocked down within five to seven minutes," Fire Chief Paul Goyette said. "Then the fire got into the voids of the structure so we had to do a lot of opening up."
 
Goyette said they were able to get everyone out of the house safely and rescue most of the pets in the house.
 
"Everybody got out OK," he said. "We also rescued 10 iguanas and one cat; two iguanas didn't make it."
 
Home owner Laura Borowski posted later that two bearded dragons had died. "We saved 2 iguanas and 10 bearded dragons and my cat," she wrote.
 
Goyette said the cause of the fire is still under investigation by the state fire marshal’s office.
 
Adams received mutual aid from the North Adams and the Cheshire fire departments. The Clarksburg Fire Department covered the Adams station; North Adams Ambulance sent its rehab trailer and Adams Ambulance had two ambulances on scene..
 
Goyette said even though the damage is extensive, he thinks the house will be saved.
 
"The damage is quite extensive. At this time, the town building inspector looked at it, and [the insurance company] and him will determine if the structure has to come down or not," Goyette said. "I do not at this time believe it will, but there a lot of cogs that work in that decision."

Williamstown Accident Snarls Traffic; Sends One to Hospital

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — A two-car accident briefly snarled traffic on Main Street (Route 2) on Monday afternoon, and one driver was taken to the emergency room.
 
According to Williamstown Police, a red Volkswagen convertible driven by Norma Rosenblatt of Bondville, Vt., struck a black Suzuki driven by Clarksburg's Nancy Hunt as both were driving east in front of Cumberland Farms.
 
Hunt was attempting to make a left turn into the gas station, when her vehicle was struck by Rosenblatt's at 3:18 p.m.
Rosenblatt's vehicle flipped over, and she was transported to Berkshire Medical Center's North Adams campus. Rosenblatt walked away from the accident.
 
Both vehicles were removed from the scene by nearby Ron's Auto Repair of Main Street.
