I was walking to Borders in the Downtown Crossing area after work on Friday and much of my route was blocked off by police. There were rumors of a shooting, but no confirmation by the police. I searched on boston.com today and found this story. The shooting occurred right around where the area of Downtown Crossing in the picture above. I probably came by between 4:30 and 4:40--just a few minutes after it all went down. The Boston Globe reported that rival gangs may be trying to claim the area as their own. I don't do a lot of shopping there, and may now do even less.
