One dead police officer. A carjacking. A high-speed chase involving guns and explosives. One suspect dead and one still on the loose. Terrorists with military experience. Overnight, the Boston Marathon bombing went from a terrorist plot to something out of an 80’s action movie as the two Boston Marathon bombing suspects embarked on a renewed campaign of terror through the streets of Boston last night. Here’s what Watertown residents heard last night.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_pzCYi_XxeQ
After robbing a gas station, the two men shot a police officer from the nearby Massachusetts Institute of Technology, carjacked a Mercedes SUV, and then led police on a high-speed chase in which suspects threw bombs and the pursuing police officers. After the chase ended, the black-hat suspect (Marathon Suspect 1) was shot by police and later died. The second suspects, the white-hat suspect known as Marathon Suspect 2 who is pictured above, has eluded police custody.
Now, a massive 20-block area of Boston in the Watertown area has been locked down, and five other communities are encouraged to be on their guard as a result of last night’s incident. Residents are told to stay in their homes, mass transit in the area has been shut down, no one is being allowed in or out of the locked-down area, and police are telling residents not to answer their door for anyone not a uniformed police officer.
