Shootout In Watertown (sounds like a war zone) Leaves One Boston Bomber Dead

Source The Lid

A Watertown resident, Andrew Kitzenberg, 29, said he looked out his third-floor window to see two young men of slight build in jackets engaged in “constant gunfire” with police officers. A police SUV “drove towards the shooters,” he said, and was shot at until it was severely damaged. It rolled out of control, Mr. Kitzenberg said, and crashed into two cars in his driveway.

The two shooters, he said, had a large, unwieldy bomb that he said looked “like a pressure cooker.”

“They lit it, still in the middle of the gunfire, and threw it. But it went 20 yards at most.” It exploded, he said, and one of the two men ran toward the gathered police officers. He was tackled, but it was not clear if he was shot, Mr. Kitzenberg said.
Right now we know that suspect #1 is dead and the surviving Boston bomber #2 (his brother) identified as Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19, of Cambridge, Mass (originally from Chechnya) is on the run. The police have cordoned off a 20 block area and are searching for the monster house to house.
