I think the police may have gotten them! Grenades and shit were being thrown and assault rifles going off! I hope it was them and not 2 random other people who were planning something.

According to CNN, there are two MIT shooting suspects in custody now.

Undetonated explosives found in Watertown....

I don't think the MIT shooting and this warzone bullshit is related.

Yeah no one is sure. CNN is now saying one suspect was taken into custody from Watertown, and one from MIT.

CNN is constantly switching between Watertown and MIT.

The Waterton situation and the MIT shooting are unrelated. It's starting to seem like the two guys involved in the this Waterton craziness are the marathon bombers, but authorities haven't come out and confirmed or denied these suspicions.

From what I heard with my own ears and what I'm seeing around social media, they are. Suspects have been identified as Mike Mulugeta and Sunil Tripathi.

You can listen to the scanner here.

Last I heard SWAT is in foot pursuit with one of the suspects, not sure which one.

Wait, is this Waterton shooting thing related to the Boston Marathon detonation?

Is there a shootout, or a manhunt?

Suspect 1 in the bombing is apparently dead. He was struck and killed in the chase and shootout. Good riddance.

Suspect 2 (in the white cap) is now the focus of a man-hunt.

Straight from a news conference by the police chief that was broadcast moments ago on CNN.

Yes.

Both. They hijacked a car and were throwing IEDs at the police while shooting them with what appears to be automatic weapons. One of the suspects was killed and one suspect fled the car and there is currently a manhunt for him. The guy on the loose right now is (apparently) Sunil Tripathi, who is the missing Brown University student that Reddit of all places identified as a suspect from various photos from the Boston bombing.

There are no names confirmed yet. The news conference emphasized that there are no names being released yet. Best not to take those sourced names seriously yet. They are still likely to be incorrect

Nobody has been officially named, that's correct, and it is wise to note that. But, a) who else is going to be this dangerous and have this kind of ordinance near Boston? and b) the pictures the FBI released compared to photos of Sunil available reveal a strinking resemblance. I'm fairly comfortable in making the assumption that it's them.

Also, this is just coming out but the first suspect who died apparently had a suicide vest (or some explosive device on his chest) and it's assumed suspect 2 has the same. He's likely not coming out of this alive. This is all via the police scanner I linked previously.

Quoting myself because I'm wrong according to the information coming out right now. Apparently these guys are foreign born and have past military experience, which would debunk the missing Brown student theory. These are, however, the same guys that orchestrated the Boston bombing attack for clarification. Getting this via Twitter, the source is supposedly from authorities at the scene. No idea how they know that, they must have an ID on these guys if that's the case. There's probably a case file on them at some federal registry.

At least they're not arabs, the media seem to hope that the suspects are such, leading to ridiculous conclusions and it wasn't just Fox and CNN jumping the gun.

They're Chechnyan, to be specific.

As I type this, they just captured two people who were living with them for questioning. The way the news is describing it, they might have tried to fight back.

No joke here, he probably is actually having gay sex right now.
