The MIT officer

his vehicle in the area of Vassar and Main Streets. According to authorities,
the officer was found with multiple gunshot wounds. He was transported to
Massachusetts General Hospital and pronounced dead.
4:00 p.m. Friday: The Middlesex County D.A. confirmed that Suspect #1 has died while Suspect #2 escaped.
(editor’s note: There are unconfirmed witness reports that suspect no. 1, Tamerlan, was arrested alive after being stripped naked. Law enforcement will not confirm, but video shows someone clearly resembling Tamerlan indeed being arrested: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TC5o-UNplhQ&feature=player_embedded. Other reports indicated that law enforcement shot and ran over Tamerlan, rather that his brother.)
