Been listening to police scanner activity online from Boston this evening - planning to stay up for a while now...

Police officer murdered on campus at MIT. Sounds like it happened at a 7-11. One suspect caught, another is on the run.

Reports of explosives, grenades, and gunfire going off in and around Watertown and Auburn sections of Boston.

News is breaking of the murder. News just broke moments ago of the explosions.

ABC News is saying that a suspect is in custody - apparently a man of middle eastern descent.

ABC is also saying that the second suspect was not killed, but is on the run. So no suspects have been killed.
