Shootout At MIT, One Bombing Suspect Dead, Other At Lage, Police Officer Killed UPDATE: Bombing Suspects Are Brothers, Chechnen Muslims, Islamic Videos On FB Page

UPDATES BELOW: 7:11 a.m. - Suspects are reported to be brothers, in the United States for one year. They are of Chechnen origin, likely Chechnen Islamists, according to Fox News. So that appears to discount the missing Brown University student below.

On Facebook page of Djohar Tsarnaev, (listed below) several Islamic videos appear. Unable to translate:

Via Dan Riehl, dead terror suspect Tamerlan Tsnarnaev said "I Don't Have A Single American Friend, I Don't Understand Them."

More from UK Daily Mail.

One of the Boston bombing suspects is dead and the second is on the loose and said to be 'armed and dangerous' after a dramatic shootout in the suburbs of the city.
The terrorist dubbed 'Suspect 1' by the FBI died in hospital with multiple gunshot wounds and possible blast injuries after a fierce gun battle rocked the Watertown area hours after a police officer was shot dead at the nearby MIT campus.
The other, named today as 19-year-old Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, of Cambridge, Massachusetts, who was seen on CCTV wearing a white baseball cap, has gone on the run.
Boston Police Chief Ed Davis said: 'There is a terrorist on the loose who wants to kill people - do not open your door'.
Today, sources said the suspects were believed to be from the Russia region near Chechnya and had lived in U.S. for at least one year.
Boston was in lockdown as police hunted the second suspect through the streets, with all mass transit shut and residents warned to stay inside
A transit police officer was critically wounded in the exchange of gunfire with the suspects, police added.
The drama unfolded hours after the FBI released images of two men named as suspects in the Boston blast which killed three and injured 176 on Monday.
The Middlesex district attorney said the two men are suspected of killing a Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer on campus in Cambridge late last night, then stealing a car at gunpoint.
Per Mark Levin, here's the Facebook page of the one suspect apparently on the loose.

Reports are that Watertown is essentially closed. Businesses are being told not to open and residents asked not to leave their homes.

Tagg Romney, son of Mitt Romney, says on Twitter he and his family are locked down in their home.

I'm drawing a line through and taking out the other names of suspects listed below. Bob Owens writes that the Boston Police completely blew that one.


A lot was going on this morning while most of us slept.

Two men suspected of being the Boston Marathon bombers robbed a 7Eleven and then went on a shooting and bombing rampage at MIT.

The two suspects were Mike Mulugeta and Sunil Tripathi, both sought in the Boston Marathon bombing on Monday.

I'm sure many more updates will be forthcoming.

Via Atlas Shrugs, NBC says both suspects are "not American born" and have been in the US "legally" for a year.  More at The Blaze.
