    They were throwing a lot of explosives, as well.

    My chief question is how these people obtained/or obtained the skills necessary to produce these bombs. I suspect that there was another party involved that aided them.
    Simple weapons to make, internet can teach it all. Black Powder easily bought, take your time and spread out purchases over time, using fake ID.

    • I am in Concord, MA right now. We came up for Patriots Week. This morning we had intended to go to Dawn Salute flag raising and then to take grandson fishing. That all by the wayside now. Just sitting in house and hoping they catch the guy soon. Even though Concord not in the lockdown area, we are about 12 miles away from the action just off one of the main highways out of Boston area. This makes one a little leary of doing any running around. This has not been a great vacation so far!

      • Green Honda was found locally, towed away. Being investigated.

        Starting to rain in Watertown per TV. Also raining here to the North.

        Red Sox and Bruins games cancelled.

        People were advised several hours ago by MEMA (Massachusetts Emergency Mgmt. Office) not to hunker down at work, but to go home and stay indoors.

          Sorry to hear that Jannie! Still plenty to enjoy - maybe head up the seacoast towards NH and Maine, have a nice lobster meal. Or check out the North Shore - Salem, Gloucester, Ipswich, etc. maybe go on a whale watch. Newburyport good for that, maybe too early in year. Or go a little north into apple country, some of the pick your own places also make their own wine from their own grapes, some sell in their own restaurants (I think, I have bought wine in such places, but not at a restaurant)

          Regards,

                          WATERTOWN, Mass. (MyFoxBoston.com) – A number of gun shots were fired near Franklin Street in Watertown Friday night and it was believed that suspect number 2 in the Boston Marathon bombings had been shot.

                          FOX 25's Bob Ward reported that as many 30 shots were fired in the neighborhood. Ward reported that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, the man known as suspect 2, was shot by police.

                          It was not immediately known if Tsarnaev was killed.
                          A bomb squad could be seen responding to the scene. A massive police presence was also in the area.

                          FOX 25's Jarrod Holbrook reported that Tsarnaev was seen in a boat with a canvas cover. He was reportedly poking holes in the canvas.
                          Holbrook reported hearing the shots being fired in rapid succession, "like a roll of firecrackers."
