Little information is currently known about a Tuesday night shooting that injured a man in Pittsfield.
According to The Berkshire Eagle a man whose identity has not been given at this time, was taken to Berkshire Medical Center Tuesday night, after being struck with a bullet. According to Pittsfield Sgt. Nicholas DeSantis, the incident took place in the area of King St and Martin St.
Just before 8 p.m., police received a ShotSpotter gunshot detection alert and then recieved a call that a man had been shot. ShotSpotter, a gunshot detection system that detects and conveys the location of gunfire using acoustic, optical, and other types of sensors, was implemented by the City of Pittsfield less than two years ago, thanks in part to a large donation from Berkshire Medical Center.

As of 8:45 p.m., no arrests were made.
