***SO THEY GOT HIM***
the radio was riddled with officers congratulating each other.
I smiled so wide when an officer got on the air and said "it is a proud day to be a Boston police officer. Good job everyone. And thank you"
After a tense situation, a long standoff, a robot confirmation, and a few flash bangs, the man is in custody. His Miranda rights have been waived, he is being questioned at the hospital, and then he gets a new asshole from his daddy. Let's see if this kid talks. Let's see if he was just as invested or if it was brother loyalty that motivated him. Let's see if others were involved. Now we wait.


***news conferance update****
Thanks to the public for staying indoors. Please continue to do so.
Developments happening that cannot be talked about at this time.
Progressing still with door to door search, about 60% complete, no new apprehension.
This afternoon there will be a controlled explosion in a house in Cambridge before they search the premesis.
Several new leads developed in the last few minutes.
Assuring the town of Watertown the police won't leave until that city is safe.

It has also been reported that there are records of time spent in Russia this past year by at least one of the brothers. DHS trying to find out if there is a connection with a terror organization there.

Obama just finished a meeting with his National Security Advisors. Putin sends his condolences. Police scanners are being asked to shut down their live feed by the Boston PD. So far I've seen one link that still works, its a guy recording his police scanner.
DHS checking flight records to see if the boys have gone back and forth for training.


***Uncle just gave a statement. Don't blame the entire family and don't blame Islam because it has nothing to do with that. It is all because they cannot get over their past and they are nothing but losers. The famiky does not support their actions. They are ashamed and dissapointed. He respects and loves this country that has given them a new chance.

Uncle says "turn yourself in and ask forgiveness from the people he has harmed and turn himself in. But no forgiveness will be given from the family because he has shamed the family and his ethnicity"

**morning update***
As of this morning. First suspect dead. Second suspect possible in surrender negotiations right now. Police are looking for other possible suspects. Suspects are Russian originally but (at least suspect 2) has been here in the USA for ten years. Citizens being urged to stay home. Transits are shot down. A no fly order is in effect. Another bomb was disarmed this morning. There are also reports of people at the Canadian border with suspicious back packs that have been stopped.

*****HUGE UPDATE *****

Published: 04/19/2013 02:25am

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. -- A Massachusetts Institute of Technology campus police officer was shot and killed Thursday night at the school's campus, authorities said, triggering a massive display of police force in the Boston area.

Police exchanged gunfire a short time later with one or more persons in Watertown, a city next to Cambridge, a short time after the MIT shooting. At least one and perhaps more explosions were heard in Watertown.

The events unfolded overnight as the entire Boston metro area was on high alert following Monday's fatal bomb explosions during the Boston Marathon and as the FBI was leading a massive manhunt for suspects.

It was not known if the Watertown events were related to the MIT shooting or the fatal explosions earlier in the week. But police response was massive with armored SWAT-type vehicle present as well as FBI and National Guard personnel.

Video from WCVB-TV showed police officers with guns drawn and apparently giving orders to a man face down on the street in Watertown.

An explosion could be heard, and police ordered journalists and spectators to move far back. Multiple police agencies were represented at the scene. Officers said they were looking for another suspect.

"I heard sirens, then a ton of gunshots.,'' said Adam Healy, 31, a behavioral specialist for autism who lives less than a mile from the scene. "And then I heard an explosion amid the gunshots. After the explosion, the sky lit up. "

Dan MacDonald, 40, sitting in a second story Watertown apartment, said he first heard sirens, then gunshots.

"It was about 10 to 15 shots. then there was an onslaught," he said. "There were 25 to 60 shots within 45 seconds. Then the shots stopped and boom. It was like dynamite."

After a loud boom, police pushed spectators and media back more than 200 yards from the scene. More Boston Police in armored vests arrived, along with a special operations truck, SWAT vehicle and police dogs.

Police told residents to stay in their homes.

Stephanie Guyotte, spokeswoman for the Middlesex District Attorney's office, said the situation in Watertown was still unfolding and she had no information on the suspects.

Police in Cambridge, where the school is located, issued a pair of Tweets saying that a campus officer reported shot around 10:30 p.m. had died.

"Police, DA Investigating Fatal Shooting of Campus Police Officer In Cambridge,'' the department Tweeted.

Massachusetts State Police said it was assisting Cambridge and campus police in their investigation.

State police said no one had been arrested.

MIT campus police referred a caller to the campus news bureau, where no one answered calls. MIT posted on its website shortly before 2 a.m. that police advised that the suspect in the officer's death was no longer on campus.

State police spokesman Dave Procopio said the shooting took place about 10:30 p.m. local time outside an MIT building. The injured officer was described as a male but no further information about him was released.

Procopio says authorities are searching for a suspect or suspects.

About 11,000 people attend the school. The MIT campus is in Cambridge, just across the Charles River from Boston and less than two miles from Copley Square, where two bombs exploded Monday near the finish line of the Boston Marathon, triggering a massive manhunt for what the FBI said were two suspects.

The school posted a statement on its website saying only that there had been gunshots heard near the Stata building on campus. It said the area was cordoned off by police and urged students to stay away from the area.

The Cambridge police posted a statement on Twitter that they do not have a suspect in custody.
