Prosecutors Say Fight Led To Boston Strip Club Shooting

Prosecutors say two men were shot in a downtown Boston strip club after an argument over who could sit in a booth.

Thirty-five-year-old Steven Gayle pleaded not guilty Wednesday in Boston Municipal Court to assault and weapons charges in connection with the early morning shooting and was ordered held on $250,000 cash bail.

The shootings occurred inside The Glass Slipper around 2:30 a.m.

One man was shot in the face and the other man in the head. Police say they are 28 and 31 years old. One is in critical condition, but both are expected to survive.

Gayle's attorney Pamela Harris-Daly said outside court her client was the victim of aggression and is partially disabled after being shot in 2006. She said he owns a video game parlor.
