Breaking News: Major Police Activity In Watertown, Mass.; reports of explosives being detonated


news.yahoo.com

Police have converged on a neighborhood outside Boston where there were reports of explosives being detonated and police are telling reporters to turn off their cell phones.

Dozens of officers and National Guard members are in Watertown, where television outlets report that gunfire and explosions have been heard. A helicopter is circling overhead.

Authorities early Friday were calling for somebody to get on the ground and put their hands up and a loud thud was heard after someone shouted "fire in the hole."

Even though I should be sleeping right now since I have school tomorrow, I went over to the Yahoo homepage and saw this. Apparently there have been reports of explosives being detonated in the neighborhood and even the national guard has been called to deal with the situation. I hope this doesn't have any connection to the Boston marathon bombing but it sure is looking like it does. I hope everyone is ok.

I'm supposed to be sleeping too...

Good post OP - sounds like it's a developing situation - probably them making a move on the suspects. Hopefully we'll hear more tomorrow.

It's upsetting though that these guys are so used to bullying people & throwing their weight around that they feel comfortable threatening a reporter with his life for just doing his job.

Pretty messed up & not at all what should be aspired to in a truly free society.



Reporters are being told to move away from the scene. A police officer told a reporter: "If you want to live, turn off your cell phone."

I was checking twitter one last time before I went to sleep and a buddy posted about it. I checked ATS and some news channels. It's all over the news. Nice speed getting a thread up. I hope things settle down. Police are saying that the gunmen had grenades. They also said that ordinary people don't prepare themselves like this. Also saying that one suspect is in custody and the other is at large still.

Hope everyone stays as safe as possible.

Yeah it is developing. It was posted roughly half an hour ago and its a headline on Yahoo's homepage which is only reserved for developing or ongoing events.

MSM is covering now.
First and foremost I hope no one is hurt, they haven't even mentioned that aspect yet.

They're being careful not to tie it to the marathon bombing but their language is insinuating that the MIT shooting and Watertown bombing are related.

National Guard in Watertown- via MSM

edit: Nevermind..it's 'Metro Swat' in camo. An effective tool to get the populace use to it.
edit: National Guard as well.

-now reporting 1 marathon bombing suspect in custody.(not connected to watertown)
-1 watertown suspect in custody, 1 on the loose.
-Boston Police Commissioner in Watertown.
-Press being kept about 4 blocks from scene.

Why are they telling the reporters to turn off their cell phones? I can't think of a good reason for that.

Because they are trying to hide something. They don't want the truth exposed.

Yeah I was wondering the same thing. The only thing I could come up with is either they don't want people recording any footage of the scene, or they think that someone's cell phone could trigger another bomb if they dial a number. Either way it's quite suspicious if you ask me.

Folks - they tell people to turn off cell-phones so it doesn't trigger a bomb.

This has been talked about extensively in the past few days.

Wow that was extremely fast. Thank god for the internet these days, you can record something and put it on the internet in a matter of seconds. Kudos to the recorder for her uploading speed.

RADIO TRAFFIC: "Suspect at large armed with an assault rifle and explosives. Possible IED's exercise extreme caution."

Explosives are some times used by swat teams to take reinforced doors down.

A little bit on the hinges and a little on the lock area and the swat guy will yell fire in the hole and bang the door is gone.
