Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, Boston Marathon Suspect #2 Reported Down at 67 Franklin Street in Watertown, MA … Now Reported Still Alive, Hiding in a Boat in Back Yard (Update: Suspect in Custody)
BREAKING NEWS: Twenty minutes after tonight’s Boston bombing press conference, a flurry of shots fired were fired in Watertown, Massachusetts. There are conflicting resorts from sources. Some are saying that the suspect is down. Other are saying that the suspect is cornered and hiding in a boat in the back yard of 67 Franklin Street in Watertown. It is being confirmed that the suspect is alive, but wounded in the boat in the back yard of this property. It was reported that 20 to 30 shots were fired by police; however, now there is quiet. How ironic, at tonight’s news conference, the authorities told the public that they were sorry they could not find and arrest the suspect #2 following last nights shoot out. Then, just 20 minutes later, all that changed. Kudos to a vigilant public. According to reports, the shed and the boat at this location had been searched earlier, but a woman noticed a door to it had been opened, saw blood and called police. She may have just ended the search for suspect #2 by her actions.
Do you know what that sound is Dzhokhar Tsarnaev? Its the sound of inevitability.
WITNESS VIDEO – Boston Suspect #2 Shot in Boat in Watertown Backyard
A barrage of gunshots erupted in Watertown, Mass., shortly after 7 p.m. Friday, with preliminary reports indicating that police had finally cornered Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19.
The flurry of activity came less than an hour after Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick ended a Boston-area lockdown early Friday evening after a massive, day-long search of suburban Watertown, which seemingly failed to flush out the teenager.
Shortly after the gunshots, media reports indicated a body had been found in a boat or canoe in a residential backyard. but that had yet to be confirmed by police.
It’s only a matter of time for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev … we will refer to suspect #2 as NEXT
UPDATE I: Suspect #2 is in a standoff with police following the gunfire at 67 Franklin Ave.
UPDATE II: Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, suspect # 2 is surrounded by police. SWAT is about to send a robot in to check whether the suspect is still alive and whether there are any explosive devices.
The second suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing is believed to be “surrounded” after gunfire broke out from a boat or shed behind a house in the Watertown section of Boston.
Sources told Fox News a suspect was “down,” but later said he was alive and surrounded. A neighbor described the sound of as many as 30 shots as akin to “a roll of firecrackers shooting off,” and said blood was found on the door of a shed, or on a trailered boat near it behind a home on Franklin Street.
“All hell broke loose,” the neighbor told a MyFox Boston reporter.
UPDATE III: IT IS OVER … SUSPECT #2 IS IN CUSTODY!!!
