    Maybe you should update your link. The article now says shooting at plaza parking lot. It didn't happen at the bar, it happened outside the variety store.

    I think maybe you SHOULD stay on top of a link that you chose to share, when it's possible to perpetuate improper information, and insinuations and misguided assumptions about a business.

    I really don't think it matters all that much WHERE the shooting took place, anyways. I highly doubt that WHERE was the reason that the link was posted in the first place. I don't think it was intended to give a negative perspective of the business where it took place at all. Shootings can happen anywhere. All it takes it one loser with a gun who thinks hes cool, to end a life or seriously hurt someone in a split second act of violence. Its an important reminder to us all of the dangers that exist in our society.

    ETA- I would be no more affraid to go to the pizza place or the bar or anywhere based on this article....cause the act had nothing to do with the business anyways....

    Both parties of the shooting were at the bar before the shooting occured, and the fight may have started in the bar. Regardless, the fight still occured “outside“ of the roxbury, whether it was right in front of there patio or right in front of the variety store.

    Exactly.

    I live in the nieghbourhood and things like this happen time and again at the Roxbury, or in the parking lot outside the Roxbury....sometimes it makes the news, sometimes not. I don't think anything is misguided about this information.

    Leigh didn't so anything wrong here. Chill out!

    You are kidding right?!?!

    Thank you Leigh for posting the article.

    If I want more information regarding it, I am a big girl and can find it myself.
