A West Baltimore liquor store where a man was killed over the weekend reopened yesterday despite the objections of neighbors who say the store is a haven for drug activity. Chang K. Yim, the owner of Linden Bar and Liquors, voluntarily closed Sunday, after a man waiting in line to buy alcohol was shot in the head inside the store Saturday night. But Yim reopened his store on West North Avenue about noon yesterday and his lawyer, Richard Bittner, said Yim cannot be blamed for the "unfortunate act of violence."
