The entire city of Boston is on lockdown and both an MIT police officer and one of the Boston bombing suspects are dead after a horrific night of shootouts, explosions, and high speed car chases.
The suspects were reportedly brothers; Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, is still at large.
The craziness began last night after a robbery was reported at a convenience store on MIT’s campus.
The suspects were identified by law enforcement officials and family members as Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, brothers from a Russian region near Chechnya, which has been plagued by an Islamic insurgency that has carried out deadly bombings. They lived near Boston and had been in the U.S. for about a decade, an uncle said.
