Update, 1:00 a.m. EST: At least one heavily armed assailant with “grenades” and “explosives” and firing “automatic gunfire” is loose near MIT’s campus, according to police dispatchers and the school’s emergency website, and police say are looking for “dark-skinned” and possibly “Middle Eastern” suspects. (Listen to the feed here)According to a live audio feed from MIT police, an officer has been shot in the arm and taken to the hospital. Suspects with grenades and explosives apparently stole the officer’s gun and a “state police SUV,” according to officials talking on the police radio, and may have stormed a nearby convenience store.“They have explosives, [and] some type of grenade. Shots fired, shots fired. Loud explosion. Loud explosion — shots fired, shots fired,” one officer says.

Foxnews is trying to confirm if these are related to the Boston Marathon bombings. 1 suspect is in custody and there’s 1 guy still loose. The Boston police commissioner just arrived on scene, so this is VERY significant.

Eyewitness account,

Two young men, armed with guns and explosives in what appeared to be backpacks, engaged in a violent standoff with dozens of police on a street in Watertown, Mass., Thursday night, a resident said. […]
The two shooters, he said, had a large and unwieldy bomb. “They lit it, still in the middle of the gunfire, and threw it. But it went 20 yards at most.” It exploded, he said, and one of the two men ran towards the gathered police officers. He was tackled, but it was not clear if he was shot, Mr. Kitzenberg said.

The other, he said, got back into the SUV, turned it towards officers and “put the pedal to the metal.” The car “went right through the cops, broke right through and continued west.”

Amazing.

Seems to be LOTS of confusion going out over the air!Not sure if Sunil Tripathi has been captured!?Scanners are squawking all kinds of mis-information!Dead, Not Dead?Captured, Not Captured?I don’t think the other guy is dead!?Too much cr@p out there!

Lol, try to suppress your joy of stereotyping middle-easterners. Especially when one is Ethiopian and one is Indian. Unless we want the forum to just go full-on racist and start using “brown people” instead.

According to police radio chatter it sounds like they have no clue where this guy is and they are still looking for him in the blocked off area. He’s in hiding. They also believe he has an explosive strapped to his chest like the first guy did.
