UPDATE, Wednesday 5:48 p.m. — The Gazette reports that the last known address of the accused shooter was 3 Mendell Way. That house has been in the news as the site of an where State Rep. Liz Malia, D-Jamaica Plain, was arrested.
A Jamaica Plain man allegedly opened fire in one of Boston's remaining strip clubs Wednesday morning, wounding two men.
One of the men is in critical condition and Boston homicide detectives are monitoring the case, according to the Suffolk County District Attorney's office. The other victim is expected to survive.
Prosecutors say Steve Gayle, 34, of Jamaica Plain left the Glass Slipper with a gun in his hand around 2:15 a.m. The bouncer at the club alerted a police officer who was working a detail at the next-door strip club Centerfolds. Both clubs are at 12 LaGrange Street in the Combat Zone. It's the last remnant of Boston's old red-light district.
Gayle had reached Kneeland Street when an unmarked police car with two more officers arrived. Police ordered Gayle to drop the gun, which he did. Prosecutors say the weapon's hammer was cocked and ready to fire.
Police say Gayle had 16 rounds of ammunition in a backpack he was wearing. Gayle was in court Wednesday, where a judge ordered him held on $250,000 bail. He is charged with two counts both of armed assault with intent to murder and assault with a dangerous weapon. He faces one count of unlawful possession of a firearm and ammunition.
