Aquarium MBTA Station Re-Opens After Shooting Investigation

Aquarium MBTA Station Re-Opens After Shooting Investigation The Aquarium MBTA Blue Line station re-opened Monday morning, hours after a shooting there. Transit Police said two shots were fired inside the station around 10 p.m. Sunday. They say it started when a group of teenagers got into a fight on a Blue Line train and then it carried out onto the platform. As the teens left the station at least two shots were fired from a handgun. No one was hurt. The station was shut down overnight for the investigation.

The NHTSA has opened a preliminary evaluation into the Subaru Forester after receiving multiple complaints about the vehicle's airbag sensor. In total, the NHTSA document dated Aug. 6 claims the agency has received 51 complaints so far.

Of course, if the airbag fails to deploy in the event of a crash, there's a increased risk of injury. Roadshow reached out to Subaru for comment on the investigation but the automaker did not immediately respond. Per the NHTSA document, the agency has not received any reports of crashes, fires, injuries or deaths involving the alleged problem.
