Allston club not to blame for ejected patron getting shot in the head around the corner, board rules

The Boston Licensing Board decided yesterday that the Garage, 20 Linden St., could not have prevented a man they booted on Sept. 18 from getting shot in the head not long after on Pratt Street around the corner.

A club lawyer had told the board the club would not let the man in and that doormen watched him walk down Linden, then turn the corner onto Pratt, where he was shot. The lawyer also said club officials are willing to work with local police and the community to deal with ongoing problems related to parking and noise, especially on Sundays - and that the club had fired the manager on duty that night and stopped doing business with the promoter that night.

that this stupid licensing board has the gall to 'decide' who is at fault or not for a shooting

Their "decision" only holds weight in the licensing world. It does not carry over to the civil or criminal courts and won't be taken into consideration in these other venues.
