Zeke Dunbar mentioned this location to Cole MacGrath, prior to the mission "Bomb Scare." He phoned Cole and informed him of a weird device they found on the street. Cole went over there and met a contact, who informed him of the same thing. The weird device turned out to be a bomb made of Blast Shards. Several other civilians saw it and ran up to it. When Cole tried to inspect it, it blew up, killing all of the civilians.
