Around 5:35 I heard the shots from Mattapan Station. 7 of of them.
You wouldn't hear them from that distance... those were different shots you heard. You don't know the area
Gunshots are loud, the sound really carries and it's like a mile from the shooting scene to Mattapan Square, so if the conditions were right, it's possible.
More important, of course, is that somebody's dead.
Lived here my whole life and have worked here for more than 10 years. Tell me some more things you don’t know about me.
You can get that Echo off the hollow River and it goes to MATTAPAN station. It's a chance. Hyde Park has a lot of Well to do family's who Own businesses oil company's gas stations construction companies so a lot of there kids and underlings feel the wind fall of cash and try to act like there balling but it's Really Daddy's money.

What language are you speaking? Can you translate it into simple terms for simple me?
How is it that difficult to understand the point of their message?
It is written in entirely comprehensible English, with just a few missing punctuation marks.
I am sure you could figure out the meaning if you also speak English.
I think you are trying to imply something sinister. Stop. Stop stirring discord. Not here.
Hyde Park is not, nor has it ever been, a haven for the well to do. From 1868 onward it's been a place for the middle classes, ranging from lower middle class to comfortably middle class. Faces might change. Surnames might change. But in the end, it is a middle class community.
Based on the map Frazer St is near Wood Ave. There is a gang called the Wood Ave gang. Wood Ave is near (or in depending on who you speak to) Mattapan. Near there they used to have a Mattapan zip code and then managed to get it changed to a Hyde Park zip code
