Bomb Suspect Hospitalized in Serious Condition

Police say Tamerlan Tsarnaev, left, was killed in an early morning shootout in Watertown. Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, right, is believed to be at large.

The Boston Marathon bombings suspect captured in Friday’s manhunt remains in serious but stable condition at Beth Israel Hospital, WCVB reports.

Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis said Friday evening that Tsarnaev was taken to a hospital in serious condition, covered in blood. Davis said officials assumed his injuries occured during the gunfight in Watertown the evening before. Shots were fired at the boat where Tsarnaev was found hiding, but officials did not know if Tsarnaev was hit.

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev cannot be interrogated due to his condition, WCVB also reported.

“We always want to take all the suspects alive, so we can find out what happened, why it happened and hold them for justice,” Davis said Friday night.

The other suspect in the bombings and Tsarnaev’s brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, died early Friday morning after post-midnight gunfight. Hospital officials said Tamerlan Tsarnaev was in traumautic arrest when he was brought to the hospital, suffering from a combination of a potential blast injury and gunshot wounds. Physicians spent about 10-15 minutes trying to recesitate him. read more

City Taking Precautions to Deal with Serious Winter Storm

Last year: Franklin Square received a blanket of snow.

With a borderline “historic” blizzard approaching the city, Boston officials have already begun to make arrangements for snow removal, power outages and emergecy rescue. 

With the latest forecasts predicting 1-2 feet of snow to fall in Boston from Friday afternoon through Saturday morning, city departments are already preparing. More than 600 pieces of equipment and snowplows will be active on city streets by early Friday morning, according to the mayor’s office. 

The Office of Emergency Management is coordinating with city agencies, NSTAR, and the Weather Service, Boston Police, Fire, and Emergency Medical Services have arranged for additional staffing, and police will be stationed at major intersections around the city. The Inspectional Services Department will double its shifts of inspectors working this weekend to deal with anticipated power and heat outages.

“This is a very serious storm that is developing,” Mayor Menino said. “Safety is our number one priority, and my Snow Team will continue to monitor the situation so that Boston is ready for whatever comes our way.” read more
