Around 11:30 p.m., somebody opened fire on a car on Spring Street near Baker that was heading towards Centre. The passenger, a man in his 30s, was hit.

The driver raced to Faulkner Hospital, from which the victim was transferred to a hospital with a trauma center. Boston Police report his injuries are not life-threatening.

A concerned citizen senses something amiss with the traffic lights on Spring Street at the Shaw's, and hopes the city can fix it before there's some sort of clash:

Cheesey burger and fries at BurgerFi in West Roxbury

Rich cheesey goodness at BurgerFi.

The BurgerFi recently opened on Spring Street, a couple doors down from Panera. Old timers could be forgiven for walking in and going "What's this doing in West Roxbury?"

Fast-moving morning showers flooded roads across the area, from small sidestreets to Rte. 9 and Storrow Drive. The National Weather Service issued a tornado warning for parts of Essex County.

In West Roxbury, emergency workers responded to Spring Street at the Shaw's plaza around 9:20 a.m. to rescue two motorists whose cars stalled in up to four feet of water at the neighborhood's traditional storm-flood area.

Burgerfi, which sells things such as free-range meat patties covered in American cheese, bacon, hash browns and maple syrup, goes before the Boston Licensing Board next week for permission to open up in the Shaw's plaza on Spring Street, where LeanWorks closed up months ago.

The chain, which already has an outlet on Comm. Ave. near BU, is also seeking permission to buy the beer and wine license of Beijing Kyoto in Chinatown, in what would be a rare example of an outer neighborhood grabbing an alcohol license from a downtown or waterfront eatery.

Members of the Albanian Cultural Sports Association of West Roxbury pleaded with the Boston Licensing Board today to forgive it for a fight that left the floor of its new clubhouse covered in blood and littered with smashed glassware and bottles.

A club member told the board the man most severely injured in the Sept. 22 incident has forgiven his attackers - and succeeded in having criminal complaints against his attackers withdrawn.

Flooding in front of Shaw's

So those flash-flood warnings around 9:30 a.m. were for real. Sean Woods photographed a woman trapped by floodwaters on Spring Street by the Shaw's parking lot. Boston firefighters rushed to the scene to rescue her.

State Police shut 128 at Rte. 9 due to flooding. And cars were trapped by flood waters on Great Plain Avenue and Weston Road in Wellesley. Ed Grzyb reports:
