Latest

06.10 (01.10) This is a completely chaotic scene. Earlier tonight two "Middle-eastern-looking men with guns" hijacked a Mercedes in Cambridge. They drove to a petrol station where the victim of the car jacking was able to escape. Shortly afterwards there were reports of a shooting in Watertown, which suddenly escalated with reports of automatic gunfire and suspects using hand grenades.

06.00 (01.00) BREAKING: We have a chaotic scene in Watertown, just outside Boston, where police are engaged in a serious gun battle with two men who are believed to have hijacked a Mercedes in Cambridge earlier on this evening. Officers are reporting coming under sustained fire and that the gunmen are using hand grenades.

It appears that one suspect has been injured and is in an ambulance. As of a few minutes ago there was a suspect face down in the road with armed police training their guns on him. It’s chaos and we’re not sure what’s happening but there has been a major shoot out in Watertown.

Why are the Brits able to cover this but the “media” in this country have no clue this is going on?

How is this coming through The Telegraph? Why not an American source? I don’t get it.

I knew these kind of two man or small squad attacks would come to the states. Didn’t think it’d take this long after 9/11.

Dead before dawn.

If so, the dead had better be the terrorist bombers without one doubt.

FNC is stating that these two are robbers on the run and NOT related to the Marathon bombings.

I've been expecting this kind of stuff for years as well. I assumed, after witnessing how just two snipers essentially paralyzed an entire city, that the Islamists would get ideas. Just imagine three or four small teams like this operating simultaneously in every major US city. The entire country would grind to a halt.

So we’ve got a small Mumbai going on after a small Iraq style bombing? Another good reason to have a well-armed citizenry, IMO.

“Apparently,” not.

FNC is reporting that these two are robbers on the run, unrelated to the Marathon Day bombings....

One is still at large.

Hopefully ammunition will go down in price now that we’ve staved off gun control for a short while.

On CNN the lady reporter asked the guy on the scene if there was an FBI presence, and he said no. But moments before, a guy with an FBI shirt passed directly behind the reporter!

CNN saying one of suspects resembles BMarathon suspect.

While John Batchelor was still on the air, I heard his correspondent say something like "it looks like the white one."

I am hearing on Broadcastify now that "the second suspect is NOT in custody."

Btw, did anyone else hear on Fox that some agency of our government was making a request of Pakistan, in connection with the marathon bombing?
