Skip to comments.MIT: Shooter On Loose; Officer Down
Posted on 04/18/2013 8:22:45 PM PDT by NautiNurse
MIT issued an emergency alert at 10:48 on Thursday night reporting shots fired on the university campus. The school newspaper reports, "Shots fired near 32 Vassar St (Stata Center), police officer down. Please stay inside." That report is backed up by CBS News's Bonney Kapp who reports hearing "officer down" on the police scanner just before the MIT alert went out. For now, details are scarce, but the suspect is on the loose and considered armed and extremely dangerous.

A better shot would request a hearse.
Sounds like a robbery but perp is dark skinned white male 6 11. 250 lbs. I am gonna stick with it awhile.

Fox News is reporting this is probably unrelated to the bombing..that this was some sort of robbery
Fox News update on Greta’s show that it’s a suspect fleeing from a robbery
FNC reporting LEO was disarmed by perp and shot with his own weapon.
“Could perps be MIT students?”
Plenty of Hotels on the Cambridge side of the River, stayed there a couple years back.
My hunch and hope are the bomb suspects are not Americans...I just don't see Americans setting bombs off at sporting events...This is generally the realm of those from the Mideastern world.
Why doubt it? Terrorists can be from anywhere and have any background...look at Ayers.
The political class in the beltway and their propagandists in the media are in full "nothing to see here" mode.
More likely the MIT students drug dealers.
Sure, terrorists can be from anywhere, but they’re not as likely to be from some places as opposed to others. If we were talking Berkeley, I’d be less doubtful. Much less doubtful.

There is always the exception, but I’m sticking with my hunch.
Sounds like a robbery..but you never know. I am obsessed now with checking news and scanners in Boston until they catch these terrorists.
I would have said the same before the Occupy stuff and Boston this week.
My prayers are for the officer.
Detective Pen on the case!
