1 Dead, 3 Wounded In Shooting Near Bar Outside Fenway Park.

“It’s unfortunate that his mother had to get a call early this morning to let her know that he won’t be there today for Thanksgiving,” said a somber Mayor Martin J. An early morning shooting Thursday outside a bar near Fenway Park left one man dead and three others injured, just hours before high school football fans descended on the stadium, police said. Evans said a gun also was found at the scene. “We had an event last night which should have been a friendly thing, people enjoying themselves, enjoying music, dancing, having fun, and this happens,” Walsh said. “It’s a safe neighborhood, it’s a safe area and it’s just unfortunate that we have some venues in this city that need to be more responsible and need to step up to the plate here and provide more security.” On Sept. 6, also about 2 a.m., two women in their 20s, had attended “a large event” at Who’s On First when they suffered non-life-threatening injuries from gunfire: one shot in the leg and the other grazed on the side. The three survivors, whose injuries are not thought to be life-threatening, were taken to Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Brigham and Women’s Hospital. “No mother should get a phone call that her son has been shot and killed any day of the week nevermind Thanksgiving Day,” Walsh said. “This has to stop.” Police Commissioner William B. His name has not been made public. “It was a chaotic scene,” he said with “several hundred people” fleeing as the shots were fired. “You couldn’t pick out who’s whom,” Gross said. “It has a history of violent incidents and it’s not indicative of the area and I hate to hear on the news someone shot so close to Fenway because the area is great, it’s safe,” he told WBZ. ‘Who’s on First?’ has also been cited multiple times since 1985, including several violations for selling alcohol to minors and assaults that took place on the property. “For God’s sake, it’s Thanksgiving.

According to the Boston Police Department’s website, officers responded to the report of shots fired in the area of 19 Yawkey Way, Fenway, at around 2 a.m. At the time, Boston police spokesman officer James Kenneally said that incident was believed to be gang-related. “This particular bar has been nothing but a headache over the last several years,” Evans said. “We were in that bar about an hour before — one of our sergeants checking on that place — and we put a car right at the corner.

I guess now there will be more.” “When I heard about it, I wondered how it might affect us today,” said his sister, Cathy Tracey, also of Norton. “So far, it hasn’t seemed to.”
