Cassandra Brouthers was riding in a car when fatally shot in Pittsfield, DA says

Authorities on Saturday afternoon identified a woman killed in a Pittsfield shooting as 22-year-old Cassandra Brouthers.

Investigators believe Brouthers was a passenger in a vehicle, which was traveling on Robbins Avenue, at the time of the shooting, according to the office of Berkshire District Attorney Andrea Harrington.

Pittsfield police went to the scene around 9 p.m. Friday, where officers found Brouthers suffering from a gunshot wound. She was taken to Berkshire Medical Center, where she succumbed to her injuries.

Police do not believe the shooting is random, the district attorney’s office said, and there is not an ongoing threat to the public.

“I send my heartfelt condolences to Ms. Brouthers family, friends and the entire community who are mourning today. We will not tolerate gun violence in Berkshire County. The Pittsfield Police are conducting a thorough investigation to hold the perpetrator accountable,” Harrington said in a statement.

Harrington’s office said further details are being withheld to protect the integrity of the investigation.
