Boston authorities have told everyone to stay home today during a massive and intense manhunt for a suspect in Monday's bombing at the Boston Marathon.
The manhunt for 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev began after a police chase involving a rolling gun battle and explosives tossed from the suspects' vehicle! A woman who says she lives near where that chase ended called WWL's Boston sister-station WEEI, and said she witnessed the end of the chase.
"We rushed to the...front of the house," said the woman, who identified herself as Linda. "We saw the first suspect get hit by a police SUV, and then after he was hit, shot multiple times."
Authorities say 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev's older brother, was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.
"I'd be hard pressed to think that he was actually pronounced dead at the hospital," Linda told hosts John Dennis and Gerry Callahan . "From the injuries that he incurred in the street, I would say he was probably dead when he was put in the ambulance."
