Does my choice with Josh Burke effect the story? (SPOILERS)

I dont remember the mission number, but this is after you capture Josh Burke/Nyte Blayde. And carry him out of the building while fighting the stag. 

The choice is hand over Josh and let the stag take over the city, or give him to shaundi and let have him as homie.

Does this choice matter in the story?

I gave him to Stag, they started attacking, Shaundi made a comment about it and then it played a cut scene which could have worked with either option. You don't let them take over, they take over a whole area of the city for you (Buys all the buildings etc).

I kept him. A permanent homie is always better than something temporary like 'they will do me one favor which I have probably already cleared just by playing the activities way too much"

Hand him over for a free City Takeover bonus, which auto-completes all takeover activities for a neighborhood.

Keep him for Josh and Nyte Blade as homies.

if you're like me, and have taken over 80% of the city before the first encounter with stag, just go with birk.

I took Josh too. Does anyone know if you keep the stronghold that STAG destroys if you give up Birk?

Hmm, is this the only effect it has? To anyone who beat the game, does this have no effect on the story? Cause when you give him to shaundi the stag girl says she is going after her. Im wondering if there will be some kind of change in the story. Cause I was looking for a SR3 video on youtube, and one of the links that showed up was shaundi dies. 

I dont know if she dies or not, that could a fake/joke vid, I didnt want to see it. But if she does die, is it a choice on the player, or does she die no matter what choise you make?  
Cause if I can save her, I want to.

There's another choice rigth at the end which effects that.

The stronghold they destroy? They don't destroy one, they give it to you.

Doesn't STAG destroy the building that you are in? That's one of your strongholds, right? The one you get if you choose to not destroy the Morningstar headquarters?
