I know it sucks, but isn't shit like this happening all the time? Is it news because they think it has to do with the marathon?
Terrible news... Sorry to hear that.
Some on Twitter think so. I personally doubt it, but we'll see.
Thank you, Denicos.
When's the last time someone shot and killed an MSU police officer and was still on the loose with a gun an hour and a half later? This is significant.
i only care about spartans --> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sqsAJQc-NCY
Livestream of local coverage, if you're interested.
CNN is reporting (I know, I know) the FBI is responding to the scene. Multiple sirens.
They have to look into it, even if a connection is unlikely.
Police officers are shot and killed all the time. Just noting that there wouldn't be a thread about this if there hadn't been a bombing there recently.
All I really wanted to know was whether it was thought to be related to the bombing or not.
Place is going crazy -- Mass State Police, MIT police, Cambridge police fire trucks by the jillion. From what I can tell, there are actually 3 separate areas that they're responding to, including a T station. WTF?
Ah -- "suspicious package" found when responding to the officer shooting. Good Lord.
Who knows, they could be working with one or two other people. The guy who shot the cop could be one of them. Grasping at straws but is a possibility.
Pull in all those cops and first responders to let off another bomb maybe.

There are people on Twitter drawing the connection. Doesn't mean it's true. More likely people are just twitchy, and understandably so.
1. Officer shot multiple times & killed.
2. "Suspicious package" located.
3. Ambulance responds to T station, takes someone away on a stretcher.
4. No arrests made.
That's what I got.
Step away from the PC and go to sleep.

What is a T station?
Just like the L in Chicago
Subway. Short for "Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority," or MBTA.
Official website of the MBTA -- schedules, maps, and fare information for Greater Boston's public transportation system, including subway, commuter rail, bus routes, and boat lines.
Police boat in the Charles.
Gernades and explosions!!! Its the terrorists!
Shots fired. Reports of grenades. Somebody picked a bad day to fuck with the po-po.
Coast Guard Cutter responding.
Get out out the 50mm boys!
