PITTSFIELD -- City police are searching for two vehicles after an apparent shooting incident on Friday afternoon in the area of Stoddard Avenue and Myrtle Street.
It was not clear whether anyone was hit in the incident, which was reported about 1 p.m.
"I heard ‘pop, pop, pop.' I estimate it was between five and seven shots," a witness told The Eagle. "It's really scary."
The witness said her 11-year-old grandson heard a car speeding off.
Detective Lt. Michael Grady said police are looking for a small blue sport utility vehicle and an older model small white car. No other details of the vehicles were available.
Investigators were searching for shell casings and canvassing the neighborhood Friday afternoon.
Grady said that although they hadn't recovered any shell casings, because of witness statements they were treating it as a shooting.
