I can’t find it anywhere online. But they apparently stopped a train they suspected an accomplice to the brothers was on. It was headed to CT. It’s all clear though. But they still believe a third person is out there. I guess it’s so new of an update it’s not online yet?

Re: why they stayed in Boston. People as destructive as that don’t care about getting caught. I’m guessing they fully expected to be captured or killed, they just wanted to cause pain and terror for as many people as possible before.

 

 

 

Stay safe, everyone in Boston area. I couldn’t even imagine how scary all this must be.

I hope they catch the one at large and bring him in alive. I want answers, not more speculation and piecing things together.

Wow, one of WBUR’s hosts KNEW the one suspect!  

“‘It’s stunning,’ WBUR host Robin Young says of hearing that 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is the fugitive who’s suspected of being one of the young men who planted the bombs at the Boston Marathon and now of being involved in deadly gun battles with police. ‘I had the prom party for that class in my back yard,’ she says of Cambridge Rindge & Latin High School students, who included Tsarnaev and Young’s nephew Zolan.”

I live in Boston, and it’s been insane. I would up to a text message saying my college is closed, and then an email that the college where I have my internship is closed. Been glued to the tv all day. A lot of the information is being repeated, but I don’t want to turn it off and risk missing something important.

Live updates of the police scanners.  The poster is censoring details that may tip off the suspect but there is some crazy stuff going on that is not being reported.

An old man was arrested an hour ago after the bomb squad deactivated the bomb attached to him (the bomb was coincidentally like the one that killed the first suspect earlier today.)

They also just got a report that a woman is texting and saying that she is being held at gunpoint by a man.  No word on whether it’s a related or separate incident.

@beachbride1216:  the woman being held at gun point was apparently a scared woman who saw an officer with a gun surrounding her home

It’s a scanner so it’s updated as stuff happens.  They apparently have not seen the suspect since early this morning.  My guess is that he is hiding out somewhere they haven’t discoverd yet and is waiting out until they reopen the area.  I just find it interesting to read the scanner reports; news still ahsn’t discussed the elderly gentleman they arested with the bomb strapped to his chest.

@candief:  I agree on all accounts. I’m also hoping that they capture him alive just so we can get some answers from him.
