Here's a link to a graphic timeline of the overnight events:

Weird that these guys felt the need to rob a 7-11. I hope they can capture the second suspect alive - he's worth a lot more alive than dead.

Is the entire city of Boston in lockdown, or just Watertown? Hopefully this ends in just a few hours, but if not, does the Pens' game get cancelled?

A "shelter in place" recommendation is in effect for all of Boston. It's not a mandated lockdown. Watertown is a different story.

You would think if he's on the lose and is not in Watertown that could happen. Wonder how fast they could get an alternate location set up in Providence or Hartford.

And who said yesterday the one guy looked like Ovechkin?

The only report about that that I heard was that he escaped before they could harm him.

An alternate location for what? A hockey game? Tell me you are joking.

First suspect did not die instantly. I hope he had time to ponder his actions in his remaining moments.

The speed and overwhelming firepower with which the authorities have responded has been amazing.

If both suspects a neatly and conveniently killed, will the conspiracy theorists lose their minds?

I already unfriended one maniac on Facebook for all of his "government knew about this" posts all day on Monday.

My apologies if this has been posted already:


http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-04-19/boston-bombing-victim-in-iconic-photo-helped-identify-attackers.html

Minutes before the bombs blew up in Boston, Jeff Bauman looked into the eyes of the man who tried to kill him.
Enlarge image

Just before 3 p.m. on April 15, Bauman was waiting among the crowd for his girlfriend to cross the finish line at the Boston Marathon. A man wearing a cap, sunglasses and a black jacket over a hooded sweatshirt looked at Jeff, 27, and dropped a bag at his feet, his brother, Chris Bauman, said in an interview.

Two and a half minutes later, the bag exploded, tearing Jeff’s legs apart. A picture of him in a wheelchair, bloodied and ashen, was broadcast around the world as he was rushed to Boston Medical Center. He lost both legs below the knee.

“He woke up under so much drugs, asked for a paper and pen and wrote, ‘bag, saw the guy, looked right at me,’” Chris Bauman said yesterday in an interview.

One report overnight stated the dead brother had ball bearing wounds in addition to bullet wounds. I don't know that they've confirmed reports that the brothers were throwing bombs and grenades at police in addition to firing weapons.

It doesn't with 100 % certainty. But if Vegas took bets on such motives you could get 20 to 1 odds that the motive was Islamic based.

It was the hope-they-were-white-redneck-skinhead-southerner syndrome.

The bombers would have been scum whether they were neo-nazis, radical lefties(like the would-be Ohio bridge bombers), Muslims(the most frequent perps), or angry girl scouts. Many people want to pretend that there isn't a constant radical Muslim threat against the U.S.

There can't be many scarier jobs than disposing or defusing live bombs

There have been reports of social media accounts/pages that are linked to the terrorists here. If they are truly from these individuals (and it sure looks like it to me)". Then we can safely assume these acts were committed under a radical Muslim theme.

It's unfortunate, but it is what is folks.

Not all Muslims are terrorists by a long shot, but we certainly are under threat from radicalized Muslims in this country. Shoe bomber, underware bomber, times square bomber, etc...

The cop that was shot dead in his car was a 26 year old named Sean Collier. RIP.

Yeah I saw this all over the internet. A lot of people really wanted the perp to be some NRA member.

Honestly this is the best case scenario for the nationality of the suspects. We can just sell/give Putin some drones and assist with intel and they can do the dirty work. That is if this ends up being connected back to a terrorist cell in Chechnya, and not just a couple of guys acting on their own.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, and Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26 (deceased). Chechens from the Russian Caucuses via Kazakhstan, and had been living in the U.S. for several years.
