Linden Bar And Liquors Is Closed Plus What Happened Last Night

I spoke to liquor commissioner  Steve Fogleman today and he told me that Linden Bar and Liquors is closed!  The liquor board used some emergency powers after the insane incident there last night.  I assume there is a chance that it will reopen before the scheduled September 23rd appeal hearing. I will keep all of you updated.

This email is floating around Reservoir Hill. It describes what apparently happened inside and outside of Linden Bar and Liquors.

"Late last night, around 10:45 I'm figuring, someone was shot at point blank range in Linden Bar and Liquors / Linden Lounge. The suspect apparently fled up the 2000 block Jordan Alley and cut across Ducatel to 2200 block Linden. Guy was quite a sprinter and was carrying a gun from all reports. Police chasing him called out for him to stop, he shot one round at them and they shot one round back at him (shots at 10:51pm). Police were a ways back in their foot pursuit. He ditched his gun and disappeared from them around 2235 Linden. Police response was quite awesome at that point, scouring the streets and alleys. Eventually a state trooper bloodhound was brought in and the path led straight to a vacant on Brookfield. As of late last night they hadn't found the suspect. Also I had no report on the victim in the liquor store, except for police saying it was from close range, he wasn't moving, and appeared dead. Neither police or suspect look to have been hit when they exchanged fire.

The assumption is now that the liquor store can finally just be padlocked for public health reasons."

Channel 2 gave this description of last nights events.
