From Middlesex County DA's office

twitpic.com...





Dramatically, Mr. Kitzenburg said the two gunmen then threw a large bomb, 'They lit it, still in the middle of the gunfire, and threw it. But it went 20 yards at most.
The unknown device did explode and at that point, one of the men ran towards the gathered police officers and was tackled - it is not clear from Mr. Kitzenburg if he was shot or not.
Then suddenly, the other man returned to his SUV and drove towards police officers and 'put pedal to the metal'.
The car 'went right through the cops, broke right through and continued west.'
Mr Kitzenburg said that the two men had left backpacks by the car and that a police bomb robot was currently dealing with the devices.
Police have told all residents to remain in their homes while they clear the area.

So authorities say to stay away from doors and windows. And not to open the door for anyone.

But police are going door-to-door to look for suspect #2. Police say to call 911 if someone comes to your door.

That's gonna be a ton of 911 calls! This is ridiculous. What a mess!

thanks, it wasn't there yet when i asked and i didn't see it on a previous page.

did anyone get the photo of suspect #1 de-robed/hand-cuffed/standing and paraded before media ?? would that be the same suspect being reported as dead ??

if so, how did he die AFTER being cuffed and in custody ?

ETA - this guy from this thread ... www.abovetopsecret.com...
5th pic linked.

i cannot re-post it or i would.

i'd like to know when forcibly stripping/hand-cuffing and parading a 'suspect' in front of media became SOP ???

Pretty sure the naked guy was released after they realized he wasn't connected.

Don't think there are photos of suspect #2.

Cannot confirm this, but naked guy and handcuffed guy were both released. So suspect was probably killed during shootout and out of camera range.

I guess they have the names of the two but are not releasing the names yet. The names are being talked about somewhere on the net, per CNN

Yeah. Sorry.

This is a mess. Other members in other threads have stated this. Too many threads about this right now!

Until things settle down, we just gotta believe in ourselves and what we can deduce.

I read that too but I think the mods are asking that no names are mentioned on ATS at the moment, I guess it's for damage limitation if they weren't the suspects.

The one on the run is Sunil Tripathi of Bryn Mawr Pennsylvania.
