New York Man Arraigned In Pittsfield Murder Case

Staff Reports
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — A Bronx, N.Y. man was arraigned on charges of first-degree murder, carrying a firearm without a license, and carrying a loaded firearm.
 
Lance Burke, 40, is charged in the shooting and killing 30-year-old David Green Jr. on November 3, 2018. Burke allegedly shot Green in the neck while he sat in a pickup truck near Spring and Willow Streets in Pittsfield. Green died a few days later.
 
Burke is being held without bail. A pre-trial hearing is scheduled for Wednesday, September 9. 
 
"Today's homicide arraignment is the result of a rigorous investigation by the Pittsfield Police Department and strong teamwork between law enforcement and prosecutors," District Attorney Andrea Harrington said. 
 
"My job is to seek justice for victims and their families. My office will continue to prosecute this case with competence and integrity."
 
A grand jury indicted Burke last week on the charges. Members of the Pittsfield Police Department Detective Bureau and Anti-Crime Unit, New York City Police Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation arrested Burke on a warrant in the Bronx on Nov. 20, 2018, following an thorough investigation that spanned two states by the Pittsfield Police Department, including Detective Jeff Arena, and State Police detectives assigned to the Berkshire District Attorney's Office.
 
First Assistant District Attorney Karen Bell is assigned as the lead prosecutor in the case for the Berkshire District Attorney's Office.
