The attorney for a man charged with killing Asiyanna Jones wants information about ShotSpotter. Prosecutors say they don't have it

Is virus weakening defense in 2017 Pittsfield homicide? (copy)

Gary Linen, shown during his 2018 arraignment on a first-degree murder charge, is alleged to have fired the shot that killed Asiyanna Jones on Oct. 2, 2017. In preparation for trial, his lawyer is seeking information from ShotSpotter, the gunshot detection system leased by the city. 

PITTSFIELD — A lawyer for a man charged with murder in the fatal shooting of Asiyanna Jones in 2017 is seeking information about ShotSpotter, a surveillance system used by city police to locate the source of gunshots.

But neither city police nor prosecutors have the information the defense is seeking, so it will be up to the private company that runs the service to decide whether to comply with the request.
