After days of filling the airwaves with speculation and false information, news outlets were confronted with a flood of real news early Friday: One suspect in the Boston bombings is dead and another is on the run after a night of chaos. The Associated Press identified the pair as brothers from a Russian region near Chechnya.
Police are searching for the surviving suspect in the Boston suburb of Watertown, Mass., where police and military are sweeping the streets and residents have been ordered to stay indoors. During an overnight pursuit, the suspects robbed a 7-Eleven in Cambridge, then shot a police officer to death, stole a vehicle and threw explosives at officers chasing then, authorities said.
