They are no reporting that the FBI has denied this.

Ho-ly shit, Boston! What the hell is goin' on up there?

Internet says one of the guys is dead, and they're hunting door-to-door for the other.
There's "video" that's mostly audio, but sounds like about a thousand shots fired in a
residential neighbourhood.


Y'all be careful, stay safe.

Not just exchange of gunfire, but also smaller explosive devices were being employed by the two Chechnyan brothers.

Thanx.  Been Sheltering at Home, even before the Governor asked.

Ho-ly shit, Boston! What the hell is goin' on up there?

Internet says one of the guys is dead, and they're hunting door-to-door for the other.
There's "video" that's mostly audio, but sounds like about a thousand shots fired in a
residential neighbourhood.

Y'all be careful, stay safe.

According to the media:

The two brothers robbed a 7/11 near MIT (dumb),
about a half mile from their apartment.
Then shot an MIT Campus Police Officer dead
(sad, they are very friendly responsible police),
stole his patrol car. 
Switched to a car jacked Mercedes SUV. 
Dropped the SUV driver off (dumb, but I'm glad the driver is safe).
All in Cambridge.

A high speed chase followed to Watertown,
where they shot back at and threw explosions at the chasing patrol cars. 
Older brother got out. 
Younger brother drove on five blocks and escaped into a residential neighbourhood. 
Older brother in gun battle, and got severely shot up. 
Taken to Beth Israel/Deaconess where he died
(I'm surprised they didn't take him to Mt. Auburn - much closer). 
Manhunt for younger brother ongoing for 6 hours now.

They are about to have a controlled explosion at the brothers' apartment building,
having evacuated that neighbourhood.
I hope enough is left for some answers to be found.

Both brothers refugees from Chechnya, next to Russia,
and been in and out of local colleges.

Less surreal than any war zone ...

Older brother was an accomplished boxer who failed to make the US Olympic team. Is the motive a simple matter of misplaced revenge, hence why he bombed a sporting event?

If they are American citizens, why is everyone going on about how they're Chechen?

So that the attack can be tied to Islamists which can thereby be tied to the Saudi national "person of interest' which can be tied to the Obama cover-up and the deportation of said Saudi national in order to divert attention away from Muslims so that Obama can continue with his Muslim takeover of the United States. 

And if that makes sense, then congratulations, you're a right-ring conspiracy theorist/wing-nut!

Starved for details, the press starts hyper-focusing on the minutia of the facts they DO have. Look for them to start making stuff up by this evening.
