Just moments after the Massachusetts State Police and Gov. Deval Patrick released the complete police lockdown in Watertown, Mass., and the rest of the greater Boston area, endless parade of police vehicles stormed to a neighborhood with sirens screaming and lights blaring after hearing automatic gunfire.
Dozens of local, county, state and federal police cars flooded into a specific street in Watertown, a suburb of Boston, sweeping in and storming in front of a white house. They believe they have the second suspect in a boat, CNBC reports, acting on a tip. The police acted on a tip and responded and opened fire on the second suspect before holding back.
They have the house and area surrounded. They took into account that the second suspect, 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarneav, may have explosives on him. A helicopter above shows the extremities (arms and legs) of a person hiding on the boat which is believed to be that of Tsarneav, the report states.
Stay tuned to further developments.
UPDATE, 8:15 p.m.: According to reports, witnesses have told investigators that they found traces of blood on or near the boat that Dzhokhar Tsarneav is allegedly hiding in at a house on Franklin Street in Watertown, Mass. This indicates that the 2nd suspect, 19, was either injured in the original police gun battle that killed Tsarneav’s older brother Tamerlin, 26, earlier Friday, or that Dzhokhar was hit but the current police gunfire at him as they stormed the house.
CNN reports that paramedics have been dispatched towards the direction of the house that Dzhokhar Tsarneav is allegedly holed up at.
