NBC reporting that the suspect who was killed was coming at police with a bomb strapped to his chest.

He never managed to detonate it.

I've been through Watertown so many times and its crazy to see this happening.


This is all just hitting too close to home. Apparently one of the 2 guys goes to UMass Dartmouth....I played soccer there in high school everyday and half the kids I know go to school there. Crazy.

This is definitely hitting close to home. My daughter received and acceptance letter from Umass Dartmouth yesterday and I work in Waltham which is adjacent to Watertown and currently on lockdown. Unbelievable stuff going on. I hope they catch up to the last bomber soon.

I used to have an office near the Waltham/Newton line.

I hope they get him soon but unfortunately I think there is a much larger network than just these two. I fear this isn't close to over.

Agreed. From what their uncle said, this didn't start with the family. Someone influenced them. The FBi will be digging into that for a long time.

New Bedford. He went to school at UMass Dartmouth which is next door, so it makes sense he's there I guess.

Word is he was in the area partying on Wednesday...

They have him pinned down in water town again. Listening to the police scanner is nuts.

Because of this kid was a student at UMass Dartmouth they are investigating the surrounding areas, hence New Bedford.

The Boston area isn't in lockdown anymore because they have the guy pinned down in a small area.

You're going to see a lot of investigations in different MA towns. I believe last year the FBI nailed a guy in Watertown who was al Quaeda related for trying to build bombs. There is definitely a network that they will work to uncover.

I hate that this is happening so close to home.

The logical side is happy they got the effer alive
Emotional side would have preferred him to have an agonizing death

See, I think that had he been killed he would be looked at as a martyr. Now that they've captured him, there is hope that we can find out why he did what he did (if he did it...he is still innocent until proven guilty. Let's all take a second to remember that. This is America and we have a process here that other countries don't have. Let's not stoop to their level).

Can someone give a valid reason as to why any police dash cam videos were not released regarding the kids throwing bombs out of their car? There isn't any evidence of a shootout occurring either. This whole situation is sketchy.

They may not have had time to review all footage, maybe their is not any video that captured anything useful, cruisers involved may or may not have had dashcams, releasing may interfere with investigation etc.
