POLICE WARNING RESIDENTS TO NOT LEAVE THEIR HOMES, STAY INSIDE AND ONLY OPEN THEIR DOORS TO POLICE OFFICERS.
NOW COTO CHECK THIS OUT…. A SHOOTING “HOAX”(drill?) AT MIT JUST TWO MONTHS AGO:
3:23 UPDATE: The suspects in the Watertown shooting were reportedly identified via police scanner traffic as Mike Mulugeta and Sunil Tripath
3:17 am UPDATE: The Watertown suspect taken to the hospital has reportedly died, according to the White House Press Corps Twitter feed. The death of the suspect has not yet been confirmed by law enforcement sources.
3:03 am UPDATE: The second Watertown suspect was spotted running, police officers giving chase and expanding their perimeter, according to scanner traffic.
3 am UPDATE: The Watertown shooting scene is still active and a heavy police presence remains. Officers are still looking for the missing MIT shooting suspect. The suspect taken into custody earlier was reportedly taken to an area hospital.
2:45 am UPDATE: The Watertown shooting suspect is a light-skinned male with curly dark hair, according to the latest alert via police scanner traffic. The man should be considered armed and very dangerous, the alert also noted. The FBI is now reportedly “engaged” with their law enforcement partners to determine if there is a connection between the MIT shooting/Watertown shooting suspects and the Boston bombings. Residents interviewed by Fox News stated they heard the sound of multiple explosions. The sounds may have been intentional detonations by the Cambridge bomb squad. The FBI just recently released close-up photos of both suspects.
2:30 am UPDATE: The Watertown stand-off continues with more reports of shots fired. At least one neighborhood resident posted photos of bullet holes in his wall as a result of the “shoot-out.” About a dozen FBI agents in bullet proof vests and a SWAT team are on the scene helping police officers locate the missing MIT shooting suspect.
The Boston Globe referred to the MIT shooting suspects also as Boston Marathon bombing suspects, but the FBI maintains it is too soon to speculate about a connecti0n. The Cambridge bomb squad is also on the scene in Watertown.
