Around noon, according to Transit Police, who add that nobody was hit. The gunfire remains under investigation, police say.
That's my stop!
Hopefully your stop is okay.
It wasn't that cold today. Truck day is next week so shooting to solve your problems season will soon be upon us.
At 4PM some guy was lurking in the lobby, and when I used my card to get in, he jumped the fare behind me. Not a T employee in sight. Usually a quiet safe station. Sometimes a little too quiet.
Years ago when the T first proposed the Charlie Card system they swore/promised that all stations would have "customer service" attendants at all times. Jim Brett even got legislation passed guaranteeing it (ha!). Shawmut is my station, too, and I rarely see an attendant there, or at Ashmont, or at Stony Brook. The only station where I have regularly seen attendants of any kind is at Forest Hills.

Worst of all T MANAGEMENT pissed off Charlie Baker
The MBTA management failing miserably and pissing off Governor Baker is a good thing. The legislature aside from Senator Brownsberger won't do jack squat about fixing the MBTA. Having the governor pissed off will at least offer the chance of a major maintenance initiative, like Governor Patrick's bridge repairs, from being pushed through as an executive priority.
The T is dead enough as it is no need to shoot it.
