styckx: Scanner down for everyone else?
Gyrfalcon: Coco LaFemme: ShawnDoc: Per the scanner link, the carjacking is related to the MIT shooting. Latest update is car may be heading towards New York.Shoot out the tires.F*ck the tires. Shoot the shooter, the cop he shot is dead.
Tatsuma: These two guys don't look like the first suspect who was on the ground with arms stretched
Tatsuma: BOSTON GLOBE: 1ST SUSPECT ARRESTED A MARATHON BOMBER
Fark It: Tactical Response!!!!Holy shiat, it's getting real.
shower_in_my_socks: earthwirm: It started with a robbery at a 7/11.Why would terrorists, armed with bombs, rob a 7/11? It makes no sense.
netweavr: ekdikeo4: netweavr: So they went to MIT to plant bombs and got spotted by campus police? Is that how this started?Way too early to speculate. We have no particularly useful informationThis is an internet forum whose main use is speculation and boobs.

mrshowrules: Why is the FBI there?
NewportBarGuy: King Something: Students of the Massachusetts Institute of TECHNOLOGY are not necessarily tech-savvy.To be fair, they do court the other sciences. I'm just very doubtful they are students. And, crime does happen. Could they have caught them trying to hit the campus, maybe. I'll just go with crazy guy doing crazy things. Like every other day ending in y.
Grand_Moff_Joseph: If it turns out that the perp got his gun without a background check, the schadenfreude meter is going to explode.
mrshowrules: someone on Fark was guessing MIT students as the bombing suspects in the FBI suspect thread earlier this evening.

Auburn, news feeds are still talking about Watertown.
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.
WillyChase: Uh oh Wolf Blitzer was hit by a car.
styckx: How far behind is CNN/MSM at this point from what we're hearing on the scanner?
"Have we confirmed that something is happening in Boston?"
timujin: 48 Park ave is right around the corner from where "someone was looking in vehicles"
draa: Long guns were used eariler. Cops want cover not concealment.
shower_in_my_socks: Next week is going to be SO EFFING BORING.

draa: Bunny Deville: A former weatherman who has now moved on to the Delmarva area is reporting that there was a massive gun battle, which I'm pretty sure is bullshiat but would love for someone to definitely deny.There were reports of shots fired eariler. They were firing from the car just before the bombs came out. Not sure if cops returned fire though. Crazy shait going on for sure.

earthwirm: Code Black?
Canton: netweavr: Tatsuma: So the farking 2nd suspect is still in the wind then if the cops are just arresting random peopleIf you aren't in a Uniform, you're going to be treated as a threat. There's a huge difference between that and being arrestedParticularly if you aren't in uniform at almost 2 am during a crisis situation like this. Just... wow.
MOUNT AUBURN HOSPITAL IS IN CODE BLACK!!!!

I lived through it because my husband was on campus. I lived through it because there were the worst fifteen minutes of my life when I didn't know whether he was dead or alive. I lived through it because for six hours I didn't know if my friends had survived. I lived through it because I couldn't go to class for weeks without news trucks and farking marching bands trying to welcome me back. But I'm not worried about that right now. I'm worried about the people that are living it RIGHT THE fark NOW.

AN ARREST IS BEING MADE
Coco LaFemme: OH shiat.Andrew Kaczynski @BuzzFeedAndrewRT @AnandWrites @CNN's Gabe Ramirez reporting that police saying at least one of the suspects matches description of#BostonMarathon suspectOf course, it's CNN so take it with a very huge grain of salt.
BPD CONFIRMED ... SECOND SUSPECT IS NOT IN CUSTODY
Police: Another suspect is at large, actively looking for himExplosion just blew off in the area a couple of minutes ago
cc_rider: Shall we believe them this time?
Now That's What I Call a Taco!: EVERYONE TURN ON CNN RIGHT NOW. MAN SPRAWLED ON STREET
earthwirm: Active shooter at hospital.. WTF is going on.
roflmaonow: That was unrelated, it's been reported in the thread already, Keep up!
ficklefkrfark: Holy shiat! So is this related to the MIT murder? The talking heads implied that they might be separate.Btw +1 on fark comments for breaking it down in real time
cameroncrazy1984: I'm just now realizing that I've had to pee for like the past 40 minutes.
gilgigamesh: Its the only thing that makes sense. There's no way a copycat could put together this kind of siege this quickly. This was well planned.
Hahnenkam: @brianjdamico (Twitter) is on scene . . . local amateur news/photog . . . very good source of info.
GAT_00: Gyrfalcon: GAT_00: Boston PD doesn't have the first farking clue what's going on.You shut your whore mouth. They are doing an awesome job in a combat situation. You can do better, you go there and do it.Agents shouldn't have to ask in the open what's going on while on the scene. They could be using GPS to have a real time tracking of cars to establish a perimeter, and have a single voice updating everyone. This is madness.
ekdikeo4: It sounds like chaos on the scanners, they just said to everyone to move to channel 1.. do we have different scanner links for their channels?
violentsalvation: I hope this is them, and that they're the only two.
Grand_Moff_Joseph: 2nd custody is in custody.Perp had a woman at knife point, wanted to rape her??/What in the hell??

Notabunny: GAT_00: Notabunny: GAT_00: Hmm, so this is pretty much done, just disable the bombs. Suspects are held.One suspect is at large. He took off in an SUV while shooting out the window.They were saying one suspect heading to Beth Israel, someone else pinned down, and someone escaping, but only two suspects. So it's unclear which of those three is false.This isn't being directed well.I may be wrong, but I think the injured suspect held at gunpoint and the suspect being taken to the hospital are one and the same. But, yes, it's getting so that you can't tell the players w/o a program.
First officer down died at the hospitalfark.
CNN finally picked it up!CNN finally picked it up!CNN finally picked it up!CNN finally picked it up!

GAT_00: ShawnDoc: GAT_00: Cell phones don't work that way!GSM phones are known to cause interference/noise on computer speakers, May be they're worried its enough interference to trigger the explosive.If they're worried that phones will set them off, people in the houses filming the bomb in the street will set it off just as easily, if it actually worked that way.
TommyymmoT: Broadcastify straight up SUCKS!
GAT_00: Hmm, so this is pretty much done, just disable the bombs. Suspects are held.
styckx: I would be amazed if this wasn't connected tot he marathon bombing.. How many shootings, car jackings, and IEDs are involved in Boston in a year?

GAT_00: What, are they planning to rape this guy and don't want to risk someone catching it on video?
TsukasaK: Longtime Lurker: What's the better source of info? ABC or the scanner?I can't get any audio off the scanner >_<Any alternates?

TeddyRooseveltsMustache: There's a shooting happening in Watertown right now.
Fark It: Wounded suspect at gunpoint./they're going to let him bleed out
MaliFinn: how is this not being covered on any cable news channel?
