PITTSFIELD — A man was seriously injured late Monday when he was shot multiple times on Parker Street, Pittsfield Police said.

David Moody Jr., 28, was found in the driver's seat of a parked car around 10:30 p.m., according to a statement from police issued early Tuesday.

Lt. Michael Maddalena told The Eagle the victim was conscious and alert when officers arrived. He was treated at the scene and transported to Berkshire Medical Center. Police said they expect Moody to survive his injuries.

Yellow tape lined the area around midnight as crime-scene investigators arrived. The driver's side door of a blue Saturn sport utility vehicle was ajar, with bloodstains on the driver's side seat.

The Monday shooting follows a summer dotted with shooting incidents, including one in August that claimed the life of 32-year-old Stephanie Olivieri. Earlier Monday, Tyler Sumner, 25, of Adams, was arraigned on a murder charge in that incident in Berkshire District Court. He pleaded not guilty, and Judge Jennifer Tyne ordered he be held without bail.

The investigation into Olivieri's death is the city's second homicide case this year. Eagle archives indicate it was at least the fifth shooting incident in roughly a month's time, and there have been gunshots detected since then that left no reported injuries.

Ryan Aulisio, charged with shooting another man near Zen's Pub on Tyler Street in July, was ordered held without bail. There was a subsequent shooting incident near the same pub in August that left no reported injuries.
