This situation is grave those are the words from state.
Police and officer commissioner activity Alvin.
-- he'd give -- an idea just how seriously they're taking the situation you can look at the F tactical officers here who are lining the road at the day at the mall here.
As we look back on the road that leads to the center of town where the action is right now where we know that things are so dangerous that the explosives are on the street how powerful are these explosives -- was one point last night -- we're looking around Watertown.
Looking around some of the different areas where the action was taken place and the tactical officers stopped us they -- my producer Jim Murphy in the chest and they said military grade.
That's the seriousness they're taking with these explosives and led the street by all descriptions are littered.
With explosives in different areas you have the bomb disposal units DOD who are out here -- the bomb disposal robots -- out -- the street there and out what the we got from the officers here now is that they want to pretty much everyone in different parts of the city of Boston in the suburbs here -- in the direction of Watertown to shelter in place.
Don't leave their homes.
Don't getting your car don't add to the confusion.
Don't get yourself in a situation where you and across passed out with this individual now described as a terrorist.
Armed and dangerous so as we look around here you can see the media that has descended you can see all of the chaos the police that the police barriers that are up.
Mostly what you see right now is the press that's come from all over the world that's trying to make -- details of the situation while the police the authorities here are taking their priority.
Basically using the press to inform the local public.
Telling them to stay in their homes to stay safe.
That's the message they repeat over and over again when they come and talk to us just behind us are the streets of Watertown where things are so very volatile right now they know they have the one individual identified as suspect number two they had -- on -- streets at some point they have to assume he's on foot at this point they have to assume he couldn't have got necessarily very far.
They are after some vehicles there were reports at least on the scanner traffic that there are trendy.
Is someone was trying to get into a vehicle that was some more discussion about carjacking.
We know that one car was stolen early on in this process before the chase came to Watertown so that's a possibility of a police probably operating on the idea that this suspect number two would still be somewhere in the streets behind me.
That is still very much an active scene that is still very much a dangerous scene police exercising all the caution possible.
This has been an ongoing -- situation that has gone.
Throughout the night.
Beginning first at the MIT campus -- beginning first at a convenience store where there was a robbery.
What followed was a shoot out enough police officer lost his life in that extended shoot out what followed that was his dynamic card chase at high speeds taking them to Watertown.
-- car chase in which explosives were thrown out the car and we know that other people were Iran other officers were injured and we know that one of the suspects was was killed.
Thank -- I'd like we'll take you.
