Boston is on edge Friday morning after a night of violence and chaos


It is getting more dramatic by the hour in the Boston area.

One suspect wanted in connection to the marathon bombings is dead.

A manhunt is underway for his younger brother.

A night of violence left one police officer dead, another seriously wounded.

26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev wanted in connection to the bombings at the Boston Marathon is dead.

The other suspect, his 19-year-old brother Dzhokhar, is on the run.

Boston is on edge Friday morning after a night of violence and chaos.

Police responded to the Cambridge Campus of MIT Thursday evening where an officer was shot and killed.

The area was shut down and the college community warned to stay away.

That was just the beginning.

Action then sprung up in the nearby community of Watertown where an alleged carjacking may have involved explosives.

Gunfire was exchanged and one officer was shot.

"In the exchange of gunfire, we believe one suspect was struck and ultimately taken into custody. One suspect was able to flee from that car," Chief Paul MacMillan, Transit Police said.

"That first suspect was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead after suffering extensive injuries," Dr. Richard Wolfe, Beth Israel Medical Center said.

There were signs of more than just gunshot wounds.

A manhunt is now underway for Dzhokhar Tsarvaev.

A friend says he can't believe what's transpiring.

"He didn't show any malicious sign, no evidence that would lead any of to us really believe he would be capable of something like this," Eric Machado, friend of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev said.

A door-to-door manhunt is underway.

"We need more time. We're making significant progress up there. But it may take hours to do this. So please bear with us," Col. Timothy P. Albe, Massachusetts State Police said.
