good morning. it's friday, april 19, 2013. i'm anne-marie and this is the thbs thbs. well, this morning there is breaking news from the boston area. cbs news has learned that one of the suspects in the boston marathon bombing is dead and another is at large. this comes after the fbi released video of the two suspects taken just before the bombing occurred. dozens of law enforcement officials converged on a suburb shortly after an m.i.t. officer was shot and killed just hours after the fbi released photos of the two men suspected in the marathon bombings. watertowocated ten miles west of boess st.corded what ap
to be numerousshosion. ta a liste all right. now don dahler is in watertown right now. don, what can you tell us? >> reporter: good morning, anne-marie. it has been a violent night in boston. around 10:20 this evening reports are that a massachusetts institute of technology police officer was shot dead by two suspects who then fled that scene. there was a massive police search almost immediately. one report has it that these two individuals came upon someone with a car and used weapons to carjack him, took him to a location, allowed him to go free safely, but those two individuals became the subject of a massive manhunt. police from all over the area have diverged on watertown, massachusetts, which, as you said, is just west of boston across the charles river. now, you can see that there are police cordoned on this street
here. they've been steadily moving us away from the center of this location as they continue to spread out looking for one suspect. as you said, there was a suspect who was shot and later died, pronounced dead at the hospital. the fbi has been reluctant to link the events tonight to the bombings that happened on monday, but the state police have no reservations. kin a oot-out with police was a individual seen in the fbi videape with the black hat. they're currently loong for specthsuct number 1 in the white hat in the videotapes that were only made public a few hours ago in an unprecedented fbi press conference. they showed the videos of these two suspects who were carrying bags and they also had photographs on their website. there was an enormous number of people who went to the fbi website, checked out the videos and pictures, and also the fbi is getting aot tips, both
phoned in and left on that particular website. now police say this individual is exceedingly armed and dangerous. one eyewitness described the shoot-out these two people had with police they were at an suv. there were numerous gunshots being fired and then at least one explosive device was exploded. police are very concerned that there are other devices. in fact, the bomb units are back in there. we saw one bomb unit truck go by that had the disposal pod on it where they put any kieshnd of a suspicious item or hand grenade or explosive in it. incredibly tense. this manhunt is ongoing. it has not been resolved yet. anne-marie. >> don, you mentioned police keep pushing you back further and further and talk about how dangerous the situation is. is that what they're saying to you, that they need to keep you in a safe area? >> yes. they have us pretty far away but we can hear the canine units
and the barking dogs who are in there that way. whenou se of the residents around here who were asked to leave a few hours ago hearing a number of gunshots while the battle was going on itself. it was a running gt. one individual was described -- one who is presumed to be the one they're still searched for was described as jumping back into the suv and driving through the police line, flooring it. we also have to report in addition to an m.i.t. officer who was shot and killed there's a transit officer seriously wounded. he's in the hospital, but he's described in serious condition. anne-marie. >> don, i know you've been pretty busy all morning long. have you had a chance to speak to any of the residents in the area at all? >> reporter: i have. i've talked to some of the students who were trying to get back to their apartment in this area. the police said that they had to leave. they forced them out here. in fact, if any of them were carrying backpacks, they were
immediately suspect and their backpacks were searched. >> don dahler in watertown, massachusetts, thank you very much for getting us up to speed. now let's go to homeland security correspondent bob orr in washington. bob, what can you tell us about the current situation? >> i think don wrapped it up pretty well for us, anne-marie. but here's the deal. there's no doubt in officials' minds that as he reported, that one of the bombing suspects is dead. he was seen in the videotape. he was the guy in the darker hat right there at the front of the picture there with his jacket unzipped in the dark hat and the backpack. he has been shot apparently and killed. the man right behind him there about ten paces behind him with the white hat on backward and on the right of your screen here, he is still on the loose. we don't know a great deal about who these guys are. the fbi is still trying to pin down their exact names. the reason i say exact is because they've been looking through a lot of names, potential aliases and other
things, and it's been a little confusing. and until we have the names pulled together, we won't know exactly where these guys are from or what their background might be. there are some indications -- and i just want to say we have to be a little careful here. there are some indications in the evidence that they've uncovered, and i'm not sure where it is that these guys may have foreign connections and they might have come to this country relatively recently. but that's not been confirmed. it's another one of the factors that will go a long way toward telling us whether or not this was a home grown plot of some sort, whether it was an international plot of some sort, or whether, more likely, frankly, it's some kind of hybrid, that it has tentacles in all places. this is a big development nevertheless because when the fbi kind of made that reluctant decision to go forward and put that video out there, it ran the risk of spooking the suspects .nd they would just disappea
it had the opposite ef fect, seems. it got a tremendous amount of response from the public, a record number of calls and e-mails. and within a few hours after the tape came out, they had enough of a lead that they flooded the zone there around m.i.t. and the watertown area. they flooded the zone with police and agents. well, we know now how that unfolded. tragically it ended up with an officer being kill and a lot of people being unnerved. it's still a very dangerous situation as don dahler reported. this suspect who's on the loose and they don't know where he is has proven the ability to kill and maim. he clearly has the desire if, in fact, he is one of the marathon bombers -- and the fbi believes he is -- he has proven he'll go to all ends to take whatever violent action he can, so obviously everyone needs to be very, very careful here. >> bob, you mentioned that officers were in the area. we had report thad the m.i.t. officer was responding to a disturbance call. do you know if they were zeroing in on the suspects or if this
was an odd coincidence that the officer showed up to a disturbance call? >> we don't have all the details sorted out. i'm sorry. i'm getting a little feedback here. we don't have all the details sorted out, so there's some speculation here, but let me tell you what happened. after the fbi put out these pictures last night, they teamed up agents with boston police officers and other area law foement folks and they kind of flooded the zone. they went to areas where they thought there may be some kind of connections. and cell phones and tracking of phones may have something to do with this. so i don't believe in coincidences in this case. i think when the heavy police presence arrived, it's very, very likely that that played some kind of role in sparking what came next. i mean these were suspects who were anonymous, off the radar. they had complete operational security until yesterday. and when these pictures were published all over the world,
you know, at that point they became a little more desperate probably. and what that can do is that can sometimes cause mistakes. so something that was meticulously planned. and we have to say again if these are the bombers, and the fbi believes they are, so meticulously planned and they were able to buy the materials and carry it out and essentially escape the scene without being detected and not showing up at any of the intel chains, that's impressive. so once they became i guess we could presume a bit unnerve, then they became catchable, and that's where we are right now. >> bob orr in washington. thanks so much bob. we'll continue the story throughout this morning. this is the "cbs morning news." yeah, we found that wonderful thing. and you smiled. and threw it. and i decided i uld never, ever leave it anywhere.
