    I know. It seems like the profiles for the people who carry these things out is so similar. I can't believe how often things like this are carried out by young men in their late teens to twenties. To be so young and so angry...

    ^ Philosophy major, vegetarian, good student, cold blooded murderer. You just don't know. Obviously he wasn't such a good kid after all.

    I read explosives were found at the Brown campus just before or after he went missing and this is now being linked to him obviously. Who knows how much of this is accurate though.
    And so, I will keep fighting to make the US a more progressive, multi-cultural country, and my fight starts on GossipRocks - mikesandy

    Well, Hitler was a tee-totalling vegetarian painter, right?

    New theory - they were robbing the 7-11 because their bank accounts were frozen by authorities.

    There are some photos from Twitter which are supposedly from the street where the shootout took place.

    The first one shows the suspect's car on the left and the damaged police vehicle on the right:



    And the second shows the bomb disposal squad searching the abandoned car:



    Oh and another one showing police going door-to-door


    That looks like the lion rampant flag in the background, I wonder if there's a Scot in the street.

    They're from this person's Twitter feed: https://twitter.com/jraske

    One Boston Marathon suspect dead, another still on run, officials say - U.S. News

    The Boston Marathon bombing suspects — armed with explosives and guns — battled law enforcement officers in a Boston suburb early Friday morning, unleashing chaos until cops took one of the men into custody and the other fled, law enforcement sources said.
    Officials later said the suspect taken into custody died and authorities identified the man on the run as the "white-hat" suspect, referencing photographs released by the FBI Thursday. Authorities warned he should be considered armed and dangerous.
    The standoff in Watertown, Mass., erupted shortly after the fatal shooting of a Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer. A transit police officer was also wounded in the Watertown fire fight, officials confirmed to NBC affiliate WHDH.
    Watertown resident Andrew Kitzenberg says he had a "clear line of view" of what he said looked "like a pressure cooker bomb."





    Officials in Watertown were warning residents to "stay in their homes and not open their doors unless a police officer is there."
    "There is a terrorist on the loose," said one officer at an impromptu press conference at about 4:30 a.m. ET.
    The suspect at large — believed to be the man who physically placed the bags containing the homemade bombs which killed 3 and injured 170 on Monday — was described as "dressed in a grey hoodie, light skinned male, brown curly hair."
    Law enforcement sources said the suspects have international links and have been in the country legally for about a year.
    The suspects approached the MIT officer and shot him in head, the sources said. The two then stole the MIT officer's cruiser, robbed a nearby 7-11 and carjacked a Mercedes SUV, briefly kidnapping the driver, the sources said. At various points, the suspects threw explosives out the window of the moving car.
    The dead suspect had an improvised explosive device strapped to his chest and the law enforcement sources warned that the suspect on the run may as well.
    Watertown resident Andrew Kitzenberg described the earlier police shoot out outside his house. “They engaged in gunfire for a few minutes,” Kitzenberg told NBC News. “They were also utilizing bombs, which sounded and looked like grenades, while engaging in the gunfight. They also had what looked like a pressure-cooker bomb.”

    Kitzenberg said when he looked out the window he saw two people taking cover between a black Mercedes SUV and a sedan, and watched them shooting 70 or 80 yards toward six Watertown police vehicles.
    He said the pair took cover behind the Mercedes SUV and were shooting westward toward the police officers. They also had backpacks.
    “It was a firefight,” he added. “There was a long exchange of gunfire.”
    One of the shooters then ran toward the officers, while the other got into the SUV, Kitzenberg recounted.
    The person on foot later fell to the ground, but Kitzenberg said he was unable to tell whether he had been tackled or shot. The other drove the SUV through the line of police cars at the end of the street, he added.
    Kitzenberg said that while he had a “very clear view of the shooters,” he couldn’t see their faces but described them as “average size, average height.”

    During the gun battle, a bullet ended up in the wall of Kitzenberg’s apartment, which is on the second level of a multi-family home. Rebecca Carbone, 30, stood on the street wearing pajamas and a sweatshirt and had stepped out when she heard sirens. "We heard a loud blast and we didn't know what it was," Carbone said. "It sounded like a car backfiring."
    John Grimes, 69, a retired letter carrier, said that he heard three loud explosions, "and you don't hear explosions at night a lot."
    The tense situation in Watertown followed an hours-long lockdown at MIT, where the campus police officer was shot and killed while investigating a disturbance on the Cambridge campus. Even as police swept the campus, there were reports of a violent car chase and then an extremely heavy police presence in Watertown, which is only about four miles away.
    The events began unfolding with reports of shots fired on the MIT campus at 10:48 p.m. ET, and the situation remained "active and extremely dangerous" for hours, according to MIT's emergency website. It was later reported that a campus officer had been killed.
    The MIT police officer was found shot multiple times in his vehicle, the Middlesex District Attorney’s office said in a news release. Authorities launched an investigation into the circumstances of the shooting and determined that two males were involved in the shooting. A short time later, police received reports of an armed carjacking by two males in the area of Third Street in Cambridge, the DA’s statement read. “The victim was carjacked at gunpoint by two males and was kept in the car with the suspects for approximately a half hour. The victim was released at a gas station on Memorial Drive in Cambridge. He was not injured.” Police went in pursuit of the stolen vehicle, following it into Watertown. During the chase, explosive devices were reportedly thrown from the car by the suspects, the DA’s statement said.


    A Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority police officer was also severely injured in an ensuing gunfire exchange between the police and the suspects in the area of Dexter and Laurel streets.
    The university expressed its condolences in a statement: "MIT is heartbroken by the news that an MIT Police officer was shot and killed in the line of duty on Thursday night on campus, near Building 32 (the Stata Center). Our thoughts are now with the family."
    Kill him.
    Kill her.
    Kill It.
    Kill everything... that IS the solution!

    The police scanner stream thingie is fascinating. They've just pulled over a cab and the people from inside it are now lying on the ground, no idea if it's the right person though

    They seem to be chasing down a bunch of different leads, who knows what's really going on.

    There are buses being sent in to evacuate Watertown. I think they're really worried about him having explosives on him.

    I hate it when these cowardly motherfuckers kill themselves. If anyone deserves a little waterboarding (yeah, I'll take the shit for that statement), it's these motherfuckers. That's one thing that showing all those pictures of people's grievous injuries and showing photos of Martin - THAT is what these photos do... make you a little bloodthirsty, fill you with rage and disgust.
    Kathie_Moffett and Sylkyn like this.

    Live Video « CBS Boston

    Live video here, apparently there are two people from the aforementioned cab in cuffs on the ground, not clear if they're involved at the moment or not.

    ETA: they're from Chechnya
