Two cars, not one, appear to be at the center of the investigation into how the two brothers allegedly behind the Boston Marathon bombings carried out the fatal shooting of a police officer and the wounding of another during their final night rampage.
After the Cambridge shooting, the suspects carjacked a Mercedes 350 SUV at gunpoint, according to a federal affidavit. Both suspects rode in the SUV to Watertown, the affidavit says.
However, photographs obtained by NBC News and eyewitness accounts given to NBC News producers indicate that both a green Honda and black Mercedes SUV were parked at the scene of the Watertown shooting. Several people who were near the scene that night said the Honda was positioned behind the Mercedes.

Boston Bombing Ping!
US Police in action. Shoot first, don’t ask questions later

The only car Tamerlan owned at his death was a 1999 Honda CR-V, a small SUV.
How odd....I thought reports were that the bomber brothers ditched the Honda at another location while the hijacked victim of SUV was still being held hostage in Mercedes and before he escaped? Right? Am I wrong?
Something doesn’t sound right.... Both cars found together at scene of shoot out now?
When NBC and the police say look over here, they want to divert your attention.
This just in, Chief Moose is looking for a white van...
...his brother had left for the University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth, returning home only on the occasional weekend, as he did recently after damaging his 1999 green Honda Civic by texting while driving...
The driver of the SUV should be able to clear it up.
Early reports about the father back in Russia were that the father worked as a mechanic at a garage in Cambridge(even though he was a lawyer in his home country before he came to America). There were also interviews with another mechanic that said the brothers were always bringing in cars to fix to his shop.
Me thinks someone should be looking into who owns that garage and is it the same one that bombers father use to work for before he left the states.
On further investigation, this is a completely bogus story. Police reenacted the shootout scene using the actual vehicles; the 1999 green Honda Civic that Dzhokar had access to, and the carjacked black Merecedes SUV. The story does not indicate investigators are in doubt about where the vehicles came from.
The mechanic was Gilberto Junior of Junior’s Auto Body in Cambridge.
Both cars were at the shoot out, pictures were taken by a resident in house . Honda had the Coexist sticker. Speculation is brothers were loading items from Honda into SUV
Both brothers drove late-model Hondas, said Gilberto Junior, who owns a body shop a block away from their apartment. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev routinely recommended the shop to his friends who drove fancy cars, Junior said, but Dzhokhar was “just the passenger.”
I could find this timeline more credible if the shooter had been a trained special forces operative or if he had been armed with a fully automatic weapon. The timeline becomes even more suspect considering that Lanza had to apparently shoot his way into the school door, move to several areas of the school to find victims and end his own life. Am I missing something or just need to rearrange my tinfoil hat?
Like many other factoids, it has never been adequately explained and put into a complete timeline.
