First breaking news: Fox is reporting that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is “down,” (UPDATE 7:29 EDT – Dzhokhar is alive and moving and surrounded by police at 67 Franklin Street) “the suspect is down,” somewhere near or on Franklin Street in Watertown. Multiple shots fired, maybe as many as twenty. Just a short note: Suspect 1 Tamerlan Tsarnaev was not a U.S. citizen. He was in the U.S. on a Visa – had a Green Card. Suspect 2, now on the run (now said to be “down”) became a U.S. naturalized citizen on September 11, 2012. How cruel is that irony that we EVER naturalize a Muslim on the anniversary of September 11th? EVER? I heard Neal Cavuto say the Boston bombings were “Domestic Terrorism?” I don’t think so and we need to rethink that thinking and that terminolgy. Earlier today Fox reported that friends of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev said he had a history of anger about the U.S. going into Afghanistan. This has been going on for sometime, long before Dzhokhar was an American citizen. Please do not call this Domestic Terrorism. Ongoing updates as more news breaks about Dzhokhar.
UPDATE 8:45pm EDT: Fox 25 is reporting Dzhohar is in custody. They believe he is in an ambulance. Applause broke out on the scene.
UPDATE 8:25pm EDT: Eric Shawn on Fox saying police have brought 3 persons in for questioning who went to school with Dzhokhar.
UPDATE 7:52pm EDT: WFXT reporter on Fox says he has just heard a series of 8-10 explosions happening. Flashes seen.
UPDATE 7:40pm EDT: Fox just confirming that “the suspect is in the boat and refusing to come out.”
UPDATE 7:12pm EDT: Police are bringing in a robot to the backyard to check the boat where it is believed Dzhokhar is hiding.
UPDATE 7:12pm EDT: Still saying the suspect is “down,” but his condition not known. Boston or Watertown, at least, is once again being asked to “shelter in place,” just about 1/2 hour after that was lifted.
UPDATE 7:10pm EDT – A Woman in Watertown called police and said they had “swept” a boat at her home and cleared it, BUT she now was seeing a door open to her shed, blood and bloody clothes there. Police came immediately and it is believed Dzhokhar was in the boat or in the area of the boat. Families running out of the neighborhood in terror.
