The Berkshire Eagle reports two men were shot Friday at an Elm Street home in Pittsfield, and both were transported to the hospital.

All city police units raced to the shooting, which activated the city's ShotSpotter gunshot alert system about 6 p.m.

The two victims, one a white male with tattoos and the other a black male, were conscious and alert as they were loaded into ambulances and taken to Berkshire Medical Center.

Police had guns drawn as they encountered the black male with his hands up in the backyard of 70 Elm St.; the other victim appeared to be inside the home.

The circumstances of the shooting were not clear, but police did not believe there was a shooter at large.

About a dozen emergency vehicles lit up the front of the house. Officers said it would take them hours to comb through blood evidence and other evidence inside the house.
