“In Cambridge involving a Mercedes SUV. The car was ultimately discovered here, in WATERTOWN, and pursued by the Watertown police department. The
pursuit went into a residential neighborhood, not far from here. Where there was an exchange of gun fire between Watertown Police, (AN) MBTA officer,
and the two (2) suspects. During the course of that pursuit, several explosive devises were discharged from the car at the police officers. In the

5.suspects carjacked a Mercedes-Benz SUV and drove to Watertown, Massachusetts, after they shot the MIT campus police officer. The suspects bragged to
the car's driver that they were the marathon bombers. The brothers began the night driving a Honda Civic, which they used to hijack the SUV.
6. When Watertown police spotted the car and tried to pull it over, the suspects fled, throwing explosives out the window at officers. They exchanged
gunfire with police during the chase that followed, and a Boston transit police officer was shot and wounded. Witnesses in Watertown reported hearing
multiple gunshots and explosions early Friday morning.
7. Tamerlan Tsarnaev was fatally shot when he ran toward Watertown police officers and attempted to set off an IED that was strapped to his chest. He
died soon after he arrived at Beth Israel-Deaconess Medical Center.
8. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev escaped police capture by driving the SUV through a line of police officers. NBC News reports that he drove over his brother as
he fled the scene.
There are reports that both brother were in the green Honda found on Laurel street.
There is a witness that said it was a police SUV that ran the first guy down and then the police shot the guy up. So if this was a Mercedes SUV it
wasn't a police vehicle. Either the witness was seeing things (not hard with gunfire and such going on) or more was happening than was reported. I
don't know about the SUV and Honda connection, so this seems like a good topic.
