676 Parker Street

appears to be Fuentes Market and Liquor. Was this an armed robbery of the store?

The Globe reports (see the link above) the shooting happened in the street during the game; and that everybody poured into the street after the shots.

Just walked out of Reggie Lewis Center, heard several shots. Talked to a few kids who were at the game. Definitely witnesses just a matter if they'll step up. Unfortunately most times they're afraid of gang retribution.

Several more shots this morning you mean?

Or are you referring to last night.

Either way - tragic. I hope someone will come forward but I understand the retribution fear may prevent that from happening.
