“Police killed one suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing during a shootout and were engaged in a house-to-house search for a second man on Friday in the Boston suburb of Watertown after a bloody night of shooting and explosions in the city’s streets,” chicagotribune.com reports. “During the night a university police officer was killed, a transit police officer was wounded, and the suspects carjacked a vehicle before leading police on a chase that ended with one suspect shot dead.” . . .
“This was a trauma arrest, multiple injuries, probably, we believe, a combination of blast, potentially gunshot wounds,” [Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center chief of emergency medicine Dr. Richard] Wolfe told a news conference. When asked how many gunshot wounds, he said: “Unable to count.”
The blast injuries may have been caused by “an explosive device, possibly shrapnel, thermal injury. It was pretty much throughout the trunk. It was multiple wounds,” he said.
The second suspect is currently at large.
