PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Police say a teenage boy is in custody after a shooting Monday morning in Pittsfield.

NewsChannel 13’s media partners at the Berkshire Eagle report another male teen is in surgery at Berkshire Medical Center after being shot near Tyler and First Street around 9 a.m.

Police say they believe the suspect in custody is the shooter but they are still searching for another male teen. They don’t believe that boy is a danger to the public.

As a precaution, nearby schools holding summer programs were placed in lockdown.
