You have of Watertown police for their first statement it did not last long but it was valuable here is what they said not prepared to talk about hot at any identification.
But there is one person dead and one at large and not would.
Well that would synchronize -- some of the information we got from the Boston Police Commissioner ten minutes ago the suspect at large said to be suspect number two that man.
That was shown to the public wearing a white hat and I should give him as a boss police department put out a short time ago wearing a gray hoodie when they acquired that image it's not clear.
It's not certain also the -- you have a both suspects areas.
In what appears to me some sort of gas station perhaps -- up.
-- gray -- it seems like it's a -- is on the front -- I'm not certain about either but that is the same profile.
Of the image we saw from the profile of suspect number two at 515 earlier tonight also and this is important.
One police officer dead in Watertown.
One police officer wounded.
Mike -- from the Justice Department told -- that.
This incident started at a local 7-Eleven.
Abouts -- the police officer is a campus police officer was either working -- night -- there regarding that.
That store or perhaps he responded to an incident but that is where.
That officer was shot and later died at a local hospital this is quickly moving and frankly we do not have all the information.
That that we'd like to at the moment but we're trying to piece it together you know step by step in from from town to town throughout the Boston community.
We're -- -- in Boston's back bay right now just a few blocks away behind me would have been the finish line.
-- Copley Square if you were to go ten miles west of here you'd be in the town of Watertown Massachusetts.
You're the campus of MIT and that's where Mike Tobin is back -- this again.
Right now for an update from his location might.
Hello again -- have.
Well what we got from the S state police now is confirmation now what it seemed like it would be all night long that indeed this is connected to the marathon bombing.
In fact what the state police identified is that the F photograph of that individual that they just released the individual in the gray hoodie.
They said that indeed is suspect number two the image that was released.
Like as -- yesterday night by the -- FBI and the joint terrorism task force as the individual who set the bomb out in front of the F -- restaurant very near the finish line.
During the -- Boston Marathon just before two for this 2:50 PM when the explosion happened.
-- -- you have the big connection that we thought they also described.
Really dynamic scene.
We had the exchange of gunfire at the MIT campus of the the chase -- took about five miles in which explosives were hurled.
Out of the vehicle it was AS stolen Mercedes SUVICC.
-- carjacked a Mercedes -- That they drove to this location.
Very violent situation.
They said now that one police officer has been killed another police officer has been wounded he -- a terrific police presence out here and the one message that they wanted to get out very clearly is that the people in this area need to stay in their home.
Because you have someone out in the neighborhood -- have to consider him armed and dangerous in fact has proven at this point that is heavily armed.
And dangerous -- all of the armament we have now in these neighborhoods behind me bill.
