Boston Shut Down As One Bombing Suspect Dead, One On The Run

One Boston marathon bombing suspect is dead and one is on the run after a morning shootout with police.

” Two suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing killed an MIT police officer, injured a transit officer in a firefight and threw explosive devices at police during their getaway attempt in a long night of violence that left one of them dead and another still at large Friday, authorities said as the manhunt intensified for a young man described as a dangerous terrorist.

In Boston, still on edge over the attack on the marathon, and its western suburbs, authorities suspended mass transit and urged people to stay indoors as they searched for a man seen wearing a white baseball cap on surveillance footage from Monday’s deadly bombing at the marathon finish line.

The suspects were identified to The Associated Press as coming from the Russian region near Chechnya, which has been plagued by an Islamic insurgency stemming from separatist wars. A law enforcement intelligence bulletin obtained by the AP identified the surviving bomb suspect as Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, a 19-year-old who had been living in Cambridge, just outside Boston, and said he “may be armed and dangerous.”

CNN is reporting that the two suspects are brothers. NBC is reporting that 26-year-old Tamerlan Tzarnaev is the suspect who was killed.”

” One suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings is dead after a violent stand-off with police in Massachusetts, and another–his 19-year-old brother– is still at large. A manhunt for the second suspect, who appeared in a white hat in photos released by the FBI, is ongoing in nearby Watertown, Mass. The fugitive is  Dzhokar Tsarnaev, a resident of Cambridge, Mass. He has a Massachusetts driver’s license. Authorities say the Tsarnaev  brothers lived in Cambridge but were not students. Initial reports indicate the brothers may be Chechens who were legal permanent residents of the United States, but it was not immediately clear.

As authorities pieced together the chronology hours later, it appeared that the MIT officer had been killed; then two men had stolen a car at gunpoint (the driver was later released unharmed). Police then pursued the vehicle into Watertown, engaging in a battle with police using gunfire and explosive devices.  One of the suspects was killed, the dead suspect reported by law enforcement authorities as the man in the black hat in the FBI photos released Thursday from the marathon bombings.

The suspect who was killed was found wearing explosives strapped to his chest.”
