A shootout in a residential neighborhood has left one policeman and one terrorist dead. The other terrorists is on the run in a black Mercedes SUV. This vehicle would seem to indicate that these two guys are well funded and not operating on their own. The terrorists are believed to be brothers, with one being a student in Cambridge. The surviving Boston bomb suspect identified as Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19.
A Watertown resident, Andrew Kitzenberg, 29, said he looked out his third-floor window to see two young men of slight build in jackets engaged in “constant gunfire” with police officers. A police SUV “drove towards the shooters,” he said, and was shot at until it was severely damaged. It rolled out of control, Mr. Kitzenberg said, and crashed into two cars in his driveway.
The two shooters, he said, had a large, unwieldy bomb that he said looked “like a pressure cooker.”The news channels are showing two young men handcuffed and sitting on the curb but no explanation yet who they might be. One sure looks like the bomber pictured wearing the white hat.
I wonder how many residents in the Boston area will be out shopping for guns when the stores open today (if there ARE any gun stores left in Massachusetts.)
Three cheers for Mass. law enforcement for saving taxpayers tons of money prosecuting 50% of these terrorists.
