A 16-year-old was arrested and charged after police said he entered a convenience store in Massachusetts with a loaded firearm.

Officers in Berkshire County saw a teen wearing a black ski mask enter a convenience store on Francis Avenue in Pittsfield at about 7 p.m. on Thursday, May 5, according to the Pittsfield Police Department.
