BOSTON (AP) — A popular bar near Fenway Park that’s been the site of several violent incidents, including a fatal shooting in November, is shutting down for good.
The Red Sox announced the closure of Who’s on First this week.
The team spokesman says the Red Sox worked out a deal with the city, the owners of the building, and the operators of the bar, to close it permanently.
Jephthe Chery, a commuter rail conductor, was fatally shot outside the bar early on Thanksgiving morning.
Police say Chery, who had been in the bar earlier, was an innocent bystander shot during a dispute between two other parties.
The bar has been shut down since the shooting. The city’s licensing board, however, did not find the bar liable for the shooting.
