This Week in Local Crime: A Mass. Street Gun Battle / Plus, KU Gets a New Coach

After Saturday night's DJ set at the Granada, the club's officials apparently pushed a fight out of the venue and onto Mass. Street, where a series of shots were fired, followed by a later series of shots (possibly fired by police officers?). In the melee, a 19 year-old was shot (non life-threatening), a police officer was "battered," and a couple of cars were filled with bullet holes. Instead of dispersing, crowds reportedly hid behind various "barriers" along the street and enjoyed the show.

Richard: "Sad. It seems like only a few weeks ago when we were settling our feuds the old-fashioned way, like gentlemen: with cue balls wrapped in Crown Royal bags."

Chip: "This is why I NEVER park downtown."

Here's a link to a video where you can hear shots being fired and people screaming "motherfucker."


After nine suspenseful days, KU has a new football coach: Buffalo's Turner Gill.

Presumably, we're all prepared to support him 100%, right?

Let's check in with the LJ-World talkbackers:

Uhlrick_Hetfield_III (Anonymous) says… "Why would you pick a flash in the pan coach with a losing record when you have a consistent winner in a hot conference ready to coach here? Perkins, you're an idiot."
