Jamaica Plain man faces charges in Glass Slipper shooting

The man allegedly shot two people at the downtown strip club early this morning.

Two men were shot and seriously injured when a man opened fire inside a downtown Boston strip club early this morning.

Steven Gayle, 35, of Jamaica Plain, will face a judge this afternoon on multiple charges including assault with intent to murder, authorities said.

Gayle allegedly opened fire inside the Glass Slipper on Lagrange Street just after 2 a.m. today.

A detail officer working outside the club was alerted to the shots inside and, with the help of an off-duty officer nearby, caught up with Gayle as he fled, police said.

One of the victims, a 28-year-old man, was being treated as Massachusetts General Hospital for injuries that were not life-threatening. A 31-year-old man was in critical condition at Tufts Medical Center.
