Boston Bar Facing Licensing Board After Fatal Shooting

Jephthe Chery was killed in the Thanksgiving morning shooting

A popular Boston sports bar will once again be facing the state’s Licensing Board following a shooting outside the bar that claimed the life of an MBTA train conductor.

According to the Boston Globe, the owner of the Who’s On First bar has appeared in front of the board eight times since 2001 to address concerns of violent incidents.

Jephthe Chery was killed in the Thanksgiving morning shooting. Chery, who had been at the bar, was apparently an innocent bystander.

Police arrested Dominique Carpenter-Grady, who was held on $250,000 bail Thursday after not guilty pleas were entered on his behalf to firearms charges.

Prosecutors say Carpenter-Grady and another man got into a shootout outside the bar.

Carpenter-Grady was among three other people wounded in the shooting.

A defense attorney said prosecutors had not provided evidence of Carpenter-Grady's involvement.
