PITTSFIELD — Gunshots were fired in the city's West Side neighborhood Monday night, police said, with no reported injuries.
Police responded to multiple shots in the area of 242 Onota Street.
"This is not believed to be a random incident," said Capt. Thomas Dawley in a statement.
He said the shooting remains under investigation. The shots triggered the city's ShotSpotter detection system at 7:42 p.m., according to the Pittsfield Police Department daily dispatch logs.
A witness told police that they saw a male dressed in all black fleeing the scene towards Chestnut Street, said Dawley.
No one was hurt in the shooting incident, but a home on Onota Street was struck by several gunshots, according to Dawley.
