Thank you you please say three of those reasons they -- Just play one way -- the other.
Always think before I guess what there's there's a photograph of -- -- that's been widely distributed I would remind the public that is there.
If you see this individual plays on what emphasizes do not take action hero.
We wanted it out by 110 local police department.
And anything that you might know but this individual.
Please -- send that to the FBI tip line this is very very important.
I appealed the other day for the community for your cooperation you've gone through.
We need continuing through cooperation to solve this thank you did it -- -- Well I think that -- of the investigation and I I don't wanna discuss the investigation.
I'll I'll talk about anything that happened here today yeah.
-- is that what it in the second thoughts about the decisions that have been made since the since the moment.
Know who I meet -- -- we're committed to this since.
11:30 or 11 o'clock last night we've worked through.
Since that time.
And that we have had people tirelessly walking the streets going door to door there.
We we did not have enough people when those shootings took place in -- Deal with the first -- issues that were prominent and establish important.
At that what what.
-- -- You know where the suspect is what you believe you know it was a big news.
He reckons will -- your life.
Armed and dangerous like noting it's let me get here and there.
Well I don't think first look at the the impression lends itself to.
Civil freeze drying the -- -- we were.
Effectively on as of Monday night.
Eight -- a couple of exceptions one of the suspects he's hit.
There was a fire guys out here last night some 200 rounds.
So we were very justified.
I believe based on what we understood about investigation.
-- taking what we -- was okay.
The extent and asking people to stay indoors what we went house to house here and other communities close but I -- we believe.
Yeah I suspect there -- lower but it was it.
Could have could it play.
The investigation has continued to develop king did you all the reasons.
All the developments right now we will end -- homeless and we can't right now but based on those developments we feel it is prudent to be able to save people.
You can get back out as long as you -- it could be getting yeah.
Or else he does the state police there will be additional.
This is this has been an ongoing effort.
That joint terrorism task force it was from its onset.
There will continue to be that so you have the FBI the state police and all of the local police departments including the Boston Police Department.
-- -- Would be disappointing -- still in the Boston area or has he won.
Dinner -- I think I'd be I'd be.
No I don't have the direct -- that he's here in the Boston area but we don't think he'd get much further his spicy to be here Brian right it.
Well I think -- so -- developed rather quickly last night.
And I would.
-- that most of the activity that was printed in the media yesterday.
Forced them to make decisions and take actions that.
Ultimately reveals that work.
Yeah I want to be clear about the armed robbery.
These folks -- not appear to be the divisions were involved in the armed robbery they were at the 7-Eleven in Cambridge.
At a time that was somewhat coincidental to that -- -- yes it -- use video.
But they were not involved in an -- -- of that in these.
-- -- No I don't want to comment on on that because that's a homicide investigation.
But all his of this individuals -- we're here in Massachusetts and we believe that's the only person that we're looking for -- Big big yes certainly still in Massachusetts.
-- the whole point in in providing that extra covers the Watertown.
-- sort of benefited this community.
We've had this whole community and in fact be Greater Boston area you know shut -- today but in particular these folks -- -- but shooting in the neighborhood last night there was a loss of life of there was very violent activity.
And so to provide that level of comfort to those folks over there and that they've reported the we're providing or supplement thing.
The -- Watertown police that -- yeah.
Little -- yeah.
And hello OK.
I think -- -- -- you -- again.
Colonel that would be something semi reported unaudited we got -- Katie yeah looking.
I'm not we're.
I'm not aware -- -- a little -- if you -- a good example isn't it.
It would be removed from the crime scene today indicate anything about.
Certainly what the suspects attended the event returning additional pets are there any indication they wanted to conduct court.
Well it's clear -- -- that there were explosives.
That they had with them last night.
They threw those -- the police officers that were pursuing them.
Beyond that what their intentions -- would be a matter of supposition marketed yeah.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Ready for him.
And Brandon League roster yeah that car that you're talking about the Honda.
That car is being process that that morning.
But its relevance to the case is still not now.
That is not something that I consider.
I'm worried about apprehending this big -- of the subject he's a very.
Violent and dangerous.
That's our primary -- Or maybe that is if I see that I operated events -- -- it as a vehicle that we don't know of a vehicle that he asked for.
Thanks guys city -- down the search for the suspect what's changed in the last you know.
-- public keeping the public should give us anything and just make the storm moves and what is your message today.
My message to the suspect is to keep himself off to stop any further violence book no body towards anyone.
In terms of what where he is at this point we cannot continue to -- that entire city -- entire state.
We are confident that we've done what we can do here in this particular neighborhood in terms of our search and unfortunately that was not fruitful but we are.
Redoubling our efforts and we -- as committed as we were this morning.
-- apprehending but it did things.
In the last eight.
Yeah getting smaller town.
I was never given all clear any I -- I -- -- re emphasize.
That people have got to be vigilant this is a dangerous person who we -- has killed people.
States need to be extremely careful.
Again contact your local police the targeted they even suspect they they identified yourself already has secured the -- personal.
We we put a number of searches this afternoon but that again it's gonna go -- the investigation and I don't want to comment on that.
Well I think that would always be law enforcement -- runs.
But sometimes those things are decisions that could take away from us and we hope that's not the case here and that's why don't give it to him to -- himself bought into it now.
And that they were together last night one of them was killed and wanted to play this game I'm -- yeah.
I'm not -- -- today again that this is a homicide case we're talking about.
I don't want to discuss the evidence and only little plastic -- we'll tell.
-- -- -- Well I think again that's gonna go -- the investigation that I don't want to comment on the evidence on up here.
I think that you should be reassured by the presence the enhanced presence by the state police in the Watertown police department.
Being here in your neighborhood.
And we are convinced that we did absolutely everything that we could in this neighborhood to ensure that this is individuals not working that last night -- yeah.
Scripted but questions grow best questions I would applaud.
I had to get a little -- -- how did he get away.
-- he abandoned car.
That he can use that was involved in the pursuit from feverish -- -- out last night.
In terms of how we got -- he did it on foot he fled on foot.
I don't know where he went specifically after that -- we have had the car itself.
A little gathering all right.
