PITTSFIELD — Pittsfield Police arrested a city man Tuesday night following a fatal shooting on North Street.
Edward Jennings, 34, of Pittsfield is charged with first degree murder after shooting and killing 39-year-old Lemond Grady, also of Pittsfield.
Pittsfield Police responded to the area of 631 North Street following a ShotSpotter activation and multiple 911 calls at approximately 6:18 p.m.
Patrol units swiftly ascertained a description of the suspect, who fled the scene on foot, and arrested Jennings on the nearby Lincoln Street.
