A young man was wounded at 178 School St. A young man was shot in the leg right outside Stony Brook T.
One man was found dead and another wounded at School and Arcadia streets. City Councilor Matt O'Malley, who represents JP, called for the community crime meeting. He recruited an array of top brass from the Boston Police Department and MBTA Transit Police, plus Suffolk County Sheriff Steven Tompkins.

Think that fancy U-lock is going to stop bike thieves? Wrong. Enterprising outlaws will strip your bike, leaving only the frame. It's a regular feature of the bike racks outside Stony Brook Station, points out Hyde Square resident John Sullivan. He calls them "bike carcasses" and says that's what happens if you leave your ride overnight outside a T stop.
