>> announcer: this is an abc news special report. >> i'm george stephanopoulos in new york. it has been a night of gunfire and explosions in massachusetts. police have in on a chase in the boston marathon bombings that began around 10:00 p.m. this evening on the campus of m.i.t. where there was a shootout that took the life of one police officer. a massive shootout where officers confronted the suspects and police now say that one of the suspects in the boston marathon bombings in these shootings tonight is dead and another one is on the loose. according to police commissioner ed davis in boston, this is a terrorist. we believe this is a man who came here to kill people. a chaotic night. as i said, we want to start off right now with brian ross. brian, what is the latest? >> good morning, george. been identified as suspect number one at yesterday's fbi news conference is dead, according to the head of the massachusetts state police.
the man identified as suspect number two, the man in the white cap is at large. the evening began, apparently, with an attempted hold up at a 7-eleven store. video from inside the store matched the suspect number two from the marathon bombings. at that point they went and tried to steal a car, a mercedes suv. in the interim they shot and killed, according to state police, a police officer at m.i.t., another transit police officer was wounded. the chase continued here to watertown with explosives, according to authorities. the people in the car were shooting and throwing hand grenades. there was a shootout and at that point suspect number one, whose name we do not know, was shot. suspect number two escaped and now a huge manhunt o this area for suspect number two.
residents have been told to stay inside. do not open the door for anybody except a police officer. they have given advice for people driving through watertown, do not pick up anybody. the description yesterday by the fbi that these two men were armed and very dangerous is certainly being proven now. >> a lot of firepower there. the police are going door-to-door in watertown right now. we want to take you a press conference that happened moments ago from the watertown police. let's take a look. >> 10:30 last evening a robbery took place at the seven-11 in campa cambridge. there was a carjacking that took place, as well, in cambridge involving a mercedes suv. that car was ultimately discovered here in watertown and pursued by the watertown police
department. the pursuit went into a residential neighborhood not far from here where there was an exchange of gunfire of m.i.t. police, and two suspects in this suv. course of that pursuit, several explosive devices were discharged from the car at the police officers. in the exchange of the gunfire, we believe one of the suspects was struck and ultimately taken into custody. a second suspect was able to flee from that car and there is an active search going on at this point in time. an officer was struck during that gunfire and is at the hospital in critical condition. there is an actniv active searc the state police and the boston police department. the watertown police department are involved in this search, as
well as traffic division throughout the area. the most important message we are doing right now is for the public safety and the safety of those people in that neighborhood. we are asking everyone to shelter in place for the time being, not to leave their homes. if they see something suspicious, other than a police officer coming to their door, they should call 911 immediately. we also want to forewarn motorists that are traveling through this particular area. even though we're locked down in this neighborhood, that they should not stop for anyone and pick up anyone the side y. what we're looking for right now is a suspe consistent with the description of suspect number two, the white capped individual who is involved in monday's bombing of the boston marathon. he was, we have a picture, a video from the 7-eleven in
cambridge that he is dressed in a gray hoodie-type sweatshirt. light skinned or caucasian male with longer, brown, curly hair. you've seen the picture. you all have it. that's the individual that we're looking for at a this moment. >> that's suspect number two? >> that's suspect number two. the white capped individual. >> the first suspect was shot can killed? >> i just want to be clear, we will do regular updates to this, but right now in a public safety mode here. our immediate concern is for those people in that neighborhood up there. we have an active search going on by tactical teams to locate and apprehend this particular individual. he should be considered arm aed and dangerous. and it is a threat to anybody that might have approach him. so, please, use extreme caution and stay in your homes. if you hear something, if you u to call 911.nusual, we'd like
ll ask the chi to briefly describe the neighborhood and the weather and the streets so everyone is clear on that. >> we're back. you just saw the watertown police describing what has happened tonight there after massive shootouts. one suspect believed to be dead and another one on the loose. you see it is the one with the white cap believed to be on the loose, brian. so far, at least, brian ross, no identification of these suspects. >> we don't have a name yet, that's right, george. we do have, according to the massachusetts state police a clear connection between the two people being sought for the marathon bombing and the two individuals involved here. this continues to be a highly tense situation that they've got members of the s.w.a.t team overhere with automatic weapons and reporters trying to cover the story. one of our producers who wandered off to see what w
