A Boston bar at the center of shooting that left three women and a man injured will be allowed to reopen, but must cut back its hours.

The Boston Licensing Board on Monday allowed Packy Connors pub to stay in business and ruled that it must close its doors two hours earlier, at midnight.

The bar's license was suspended after four people suffered non-life threatening injuries in a shooting outside the tavern at about 2 a.m. Friday.

Packy's has been in the city's Roxbury section since the 1930s. Police say it has been a hotspot for trouble in recent years.

A suspect in Friday's shootings, 19-year-old Charkem Hyatt, was ordered held on $200,000 bail after pleading not guilty to charges including assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
