The Boston Marathon Bombings

Update April 19, 2013 10:33am, South Texas:

Late night Wednesday April 18, 2013, Boston Police went on a pursuit against what is believed to be 2 wanted suspects just outside of Boston. Suspect No. 1 is Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, and Suspect No. 2 is Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19. A late night chase between the suspects and police has left one of the suspects dead 26 year old Tamerlan Tsarnaev. Suspect No. 2 is currently on the run. Getting my information live from a police scanner it appears as if they have detained a 60 yearl old man and is currently on the ground by police officers belived to have some sort of explosive device under his brown jacket and some type of switch on his hand. They have not said if this person is of interest to the bombings, but after he is cleared of any explosives they will find a secure place to detain him for questioning. Police have lockdown a 20 block perimeter to be cautious. Suspect No.2 is still on the run. A Massachusetts Police State Spokeperson has just told reporters the 60 year old man is of no connection to the bombings. The uncle of the two men is urging his nephew to turn himself in. He stated that the last time he had contact with his nephews was 4 years ago.
The chase began at approximately 10:20 p.m. Thursday when police said the bombing suspects robbed a 7-Eleven store in Cambridge. Minutes later, police said, the men shot and killed an MIT campus officer responding to the robbery call. The terror suspects then carjacked a Mercedes-Benz with the driver inside and fled, eventually letting  the driver go. They were then spotted in Watertown where they exchanged dozens of rounds of gunfire with patrol officers. It has been confirmed they are from Russia and have been living in the states since 2001.
