Somacandra: Coco LaFemme: Metro Editor at the Boston Globe is reporting that the suspect in custody is connected to Marathon Bombing, however this is unconfirmed.

The mass media track record is not favorable. No need to jump on this until triple confirmed.


I'm in complete agreement. I'm just passing along what I'm getting fed to me.

ShawnDoc: That person was already cleared. He just happened to be on the street with a backpack at the wrong time.


No that's a different guy, the guy with the backpack was not on the ground, they just swarmed on him he was with the media and passerby

I was looking at the images of this guy on the ground as I heard the other arrested live

Ray44512: It sounds like the shots fired calls on the scanner feed may not be related. Maybe the natives are taking advantage of every cop being tied up and are firing expensive ammo.


The guy in the area tweeting has a bullet through his living room.

I'd say they're related.

bud jones: MaliFinn: nyrkah1: "Long guns" sounds so...quaint.

Sounds like pirate talk.

Sounds like 2013 PC for "rapid fire rifles"


No.. firearm with a long barrel... generally rifle of any variety.
 
2013-04-19 02:29:56 AM

TeddyRooseveltsMustache: Did they just say shots fired?


That's what I heard, "approximately 16 shots fired".

If anyone has an Ipad, Nook, probably kindle or whatever, download Scanner Radio Pro.  No interruption from the broadcastify feed.

draa: Redwing: Boston Marathon Suspect in Custody - Boston Globe -  http://b.globe.com/15le635

So that is one of them were listening to the cops try to find. Good news for once.


If it does turn out to be the case, hours ago, someone wondered if the MIT cop recognized him and that is what started it all

Boston Globe hasn't made one mistake this whole week, so I would be absolutely shocked if they got this one wrong. Solid sources.

the ha ha guy: Local live streams:

WBZ CBS Channel 4: http://boston.cbslocal.com/live-video/

WCVB ABC Channel 5 (same as CNN): http://livewire.wcvb.com/Event/117th_Running_of_Boston_Marathon

WHDH NBC Channel 7: http://www1.whdh.com/video/7newslive

Working police scanner: http://tunein.com/radio/Boston-Police-Fire-and-EMS-Scanner-s146109/
News feeds seem ~20 minutes behind, police just left 14 Hazel to go to Aberdeen & Mt. Auburn, news feeds are still talking about Watertown.


You get TF

Man there goes my night of sleep. Farking anxiety and rush from listening and reading this.

ShawnDoc: balki1867: timujin: 48 Park ave is right around the corner from where "someone was looking in vehicles"

Wow, that's nowhere near Watertown.  Not sure if they're more than 2 people involved or just some really smart dudes.

The scanner is covering the Boston metro area, so not everything you hear is related to the MIT shooting suspects.


I'm not sure what he's talking about, 48 Park is either in Watertown or right next to it in Cambridge
 
2013-04-19 02:30:21 AM
Holy carp. I need sleep. Hopefully Boston will get some sleep soon, too. In a good way.

Thanks for the links and all! This is one heck of a way to follow the news.
 
2013-04-19 02:30:39 AM
Wow, they have units from Billerica on this thing.
 
2013-04-19 02:30:47 AM
Should we move to a new thread?

nyrkah1: "Long guns" sounds so...quaint.


That's what I say. Me and another friend of mine, who happens to be from Texas, always get a giggle when somebody says 'long guns', no matter the situation. We just always laugh when somebody uses that term over riffle or shotgun.

Understand.

Asking for more information from Ambulance.

Tatsuma: These two guys don't look like the first suspect who was on the ground with arms stretched


He was released - no connection, just wrong place wrong time with a backpack
 
2013-04-19 02:31:32 AM
I've been sitting here for a long damn time and just realized I have not had the least bit of an impulse to turn on one of the 24 hour "news" channels.
 
2013-04-19 02:31:37 AM
Apparently The Boston Globe isnt communicating with the FBI.

FBI: "Too early to tell if related to Marathon"
 
2013-04-19 02:31:44 AM
NOOOOOO just lost both possible scanner feeds...I'm now completely in the dark.

/still watching CNN
//Like I said.

Cops always refer to long guns. Because handguns are short, I guess, but every police officer I've known has called them "long guns".

Yuri Futanari:

The guy in the area tweeting has a bullet through his living room.

I'd say they're related.

According to Wikipedia, 'long guns' are guns designed to be fired with the butt against the shoulder, as opposed to handguns.

Virgo, enjoys long walks on the beach at sunset, the color blue, and holding hands with that special someone.

2013-04-19 02:33:25 AM
sports authority! gonna get all kitted up in there. like in Mr. & Mrs. Smith.
 
2013-04-19 02:33:26 AM
"Long gun" just means "rifles and shotguns" the same way that "hand gun" means "pistols and revolvers."
 
2013-04-19 02:33:41 AM
Moving to the new thread.

/not like you care

Do you have another word to describe both shotguns and rifles?

Did they just say Sports Authority is in charge? Big 5 is gonna be pissed!

At least it's not an assault rifle.

Tatsuma: shiat just what I thought probably happened, second suspect just entered a house and took some hostages


This is why you sleep with the gun loaded by your bed.

No need. We are getting more news from Farkers and scanner feeds than any 24hr station could give us. Not to mention the Twitter feed someone's been posting. Great job people. Makes me proud to be a Farker.
 
2013-04-19 02:34:13 AM
SUSPECT THAT WAS SHOT HAS DIED, PER NBC
 
2013-04-19 02:34:40 AM
