A NUISANCE BAR on a Nicetown corner where a fight outside sparked gunfire that left a woman dead in November 2012 became the scene of another fatal shooting over the weekend. Gunfire erupted in the bar formerly known as Buffy's Lounge - more recently renamed Mr. Chicken and Bernice's Lounge - at Dennie and Clarissa streets about 12:30 a.m. Saturday, police said. Responding officers found a man in the bar shot once in the back, a police spokeswoman said. He died at Temple University Hospital just before 1 a.m. Police said yesterday that they had not yet identified the victim, and that no suspects or motive in the shooting had been determined.

FOR THE TIME being, problem officers in the Police Department reportedly will go unpunished. Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey told the Inquirer yesterday that he is temporarily suspending all disciplinary action against officers. Ramsey's decision comes after a Pennsylvania Labor Relations Board ruled this week that changes Ramsey made to the department's disciplinary code were unfair. The ruling was reported by the Daily News yesterday. Attempts to reach Ramsey, who was attending a law-enforcement conference in San Francisco, were unsuccessful last night.

MORE THAN once yesterday, Lewis Katz and H.F. "Gerry" Lenfest seemed more than a little surprised to still own the two newspapers and website they bought two years ago. An acrimonious ownership feud ended when Katz and Lenfest bid $88 million yesterday to buy out three other investors in the company that owns the Daily News , the Inquirer and Philly.com. "I would have bet anything I was cashing a big check today," Katz joked to employees after the auction. He then turned serious, adding, "I apologize to each and every one of you for being part of creating some of the chaos.

TEMPLE'S doomed baseball team has at least three games left. The program, one of four being eliminated by the university effective July 1 due to athletic budget cuts (men's gymnastics will continue at the club level thanks to a fund-matching pledge by Board of Trustees member Lewis Katz, co-owner of the Daily News ), has been playing since 1927. Despite losing a bunch of key players who opted to transfer following the December announcement, the Owls have advanced to their conference tournament for the first time since 2008, when they were still in the Atlantic 10. Picked to finish last in the preseason poll under third-year coach Ryan Wheeler, they are the sixth seed in the inaugural American Athletic tourney, which begins Wednesday at Clearwater's Bright House Field, spring-training home of the Phillies.

THIS IS A 21st-century retelling of the parable of the lion who lies down with the lamb. In our story, the lion is state Rep. Mark Cohen, the longest-serving member of the state Legislature. The lamb is Jared Solomon, his challenger in tomorrow's Democratic primary. Cohen has been in office since 1974, almost as long as I've been at the Daily News , but he has a much better expense account. He represents the lower Northeast - Castor Gardens, Lawndale, Oxford Circle, Lawncrest, Burholme, Summerdale and Wissinoming.

MOST ROBBERIES follow a common model: Get the goods and get out. But a trio of punks took their heist to the next level early Monday, when they posed as workers for three hours at a Hess gas station in Eastwick - they even gave discounts on candy, cigarettes and lottery tickets to the customers they "served," pocketing the cash from the sales. "I've been doing this for 23 years; this is the first time I recall an incident like this," Lt. John Walker, of Southwest Detectives, said.

YOU MAY already know that Gary Smith, widely considered the best sports writer on the planet, announced he is retiring after a 32-year career with Sports Illustrated. But did you know he worked at the Daily News from 1973 to 1980? "I started out on the [copy] desk for 2 years writing sports shorts," said Smith, who was born in Wilmington, Del., and graduated from La Salle University. "My first story [for the Daily News ]? It might have been a Frankford High football game in '75 or '76. " That led to a rather unique beat.

TWO CRIMINAL investigators, part of an FBI-led task force, came to Juan Collado's bodega in 2009 to hear his story. Collado struggled to explain in English how a narcotics squad had barreled into his Tioga store, cut wires to his video-surveillance system and - once the cameras went dark - stole almost $10,000 and cartons of Marlboro Lights. He asked them for a Spanish interpreter and they promised to return with one. They never did. Now it's too late. Last week, news broke that federal prosecutors had decided not to file criminal charges against the officers.
