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

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.

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.

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


Understand.

Asking for more information from Ambulance.

Boston Globe hasn't made one mistake this whole week, so I would be absolutely shocked if they got this one wrong. Solid sources.
 
2013-04-19 02:31:21 AM  

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

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.

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.

He shot Thursday.
 
2013-04-19 02:32:05 AM  

Yuri Futanari: 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.

Guns and Ammo or Soldier of Fortune obviously.

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.

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.

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.

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.

SUSPECT THAT WAS SHOT HAS DIED, PER NBC
 
2013-04-19 02:34:40 AM  
Going to new thread as well.
 
2013-04-19 02:34:45 AM  
OK, if CNN calls it a "huge crime scene" or a "huge incident" one more time, there's going to be another terrorist act, at the CNN headquarters this time.

"Huge" incident. Jesus.

CNN reporting they have seen SIX, I repeat, SIX FBI agents.

I wish I was kidding.

That guy lives right outside where the initial shootout happened.  Isn't it likely the bullet holes are from that shooting and not the more recent one we're talking about?
 
2013-04-19 02:35:31 AM  
The guy they arrested doesn't look like either of the new pix the FBI released.
 
2013-04-19 02:35:37 AM  
CNN reports that according to on camera   sources CNN is 23 years behind on this story..
