Judge John A. Agostini listens as Nick Carnevale’s parents speak in March about how the shooting has impacted their lives — and the life of their son. The man suspected of shooting Carnevale is expected to change his plea Friday during a court hearing — just days before his trial was about to begin.

PITTSFIELD — The alleged gunman in the October Mountain shooting of Nick Carnevale may seek to change his plea and avoid trial. 

A hearing for an unagreed change of plea has been scheduled for Luis Delvalle-Rodriguez at 10 a.m. Friday in Berkshire Superior Court, according to the court clerk.

Prosecutors have identified Delvalle-Rodriguez as the gunman who allegedly shot Carnevale twice in the head at a party at October Mountain State Forest in Washington on Aug.
