"2:20 a.m. The New York Times publishes an article quoting Watertown residents who say that two men hid behind a black Mercedes SUV and engaged in a shootout with a large number of police officers. The men, about 200 feet apart, exchanged “constant gunfire,” and the two shooters lit an explosive; it landed in the space between them and the police, and then exploded. One of the two men then ran toward police and was tackled, an eyewitness tells the Times.”
—-Try and follow me here…. So the guy was running towards dozens of cops after over 200 rounds were fired and he’s armed and dangerous and the witness doesn’t say the cops shot him when he ran towards them, only that they tackled him? My only thought is maybe he got shot while running towards them and she didn’t mention it (but tackling is not something you do to someone who has been shot, he’d just fall down or back, and they would have put SO many bullets in him considering how dangerous his actions during the chase and shootout are claimed to be AND he’s running toward them) and then the other brother hopped into the car (somehow avoiding gunfire from dozens of officers while getting in and driving towards the officers) and then ran over his brother, got away and escaped on foot (Cops claim that the one suspect was shot and taken into custody (not the hospital) and the other was able to “flee from that car“: http://youtu.be/q2Ed5chLGqM )
I want accurate info, can someone clarify? Or do you find this odd too?
