PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Authorities say a New York woman who died after being shot in western Massachusetts last weekend was not the intended target.

The Berkshire district attorney’s office on Wednesday identified the victim of Sunday’s shooting in Pittsfield as 32-year-old Stephanie Olivieri, of Yonkers, New York.

She was shot once while sitting in a car at about 3:30 a.m.

The shooting remains under investigation and no arrests have been announced.

Prosecutors say Olivieri formerly lived in Becket, Massachusetts and neighbors tell The Berkshire Eagle that she regularly spent time in the neighborhood where she was shot. An autopsy will be performed.

Police say her death is the city’s second homicide of the year.
