Shooting outside Pittsfield club still under investigation


PITTSFIELD -- Police are continuing to investigate Saturday's shooting of two people outside a city nightclub.

Two people were shot in the parking lot of Chameleons, a nightclub located at 1350 East St., minutes after the bar closed early Saturday, according to Pittsfield Police.
