July 6, 2018

PITTSFIELD, Mass. (AP) — Three people have been indicted on murder charges in connection with the death of a 22-year-old Pittsfield woman police say was caught in the crossfire of a gunfight.

The Berkshire Eagle reports that 38-year-old Gary Linen pleaded not guilty Thursday to murder in the Oct. 2 shooting death of Asiyanna Jones.

Two others, Carey Pilot and Josiaiah Bynum, pleaded not guilty earlier this week. All three suspects were held without bail.

Authorities say Pilot and Bynum shot at Linen and a 25-year-old woman, who has not been charged with a crime. Police say Linen returned fire. Jones was struck in the head by a bullet as she sat in a car.

It remains unclear who fired the fatal shot.

Lawyers for the suspects did not comment.
