Skip to comments.MIT: Shooter On Loose; Officer Down
Posted on 04/18/2013 8:22:45 PM PDT by NautiNurse
MIT issued an emergency alert at 10:48 on Thursday night reporting shots fired on the university campus. The school newspaper reports, "Shots fired near 32 Vassar St (Stata Center), police officer down. Please stay inside." That report is backed up by CBS News's Bonney Kapp who reports hearing "officer down" on the police scanner just before the MIT alert went out. For now, details are scarce, but the suspect is on the loose and considered armed and extremely dangerous.

So the shooter can find you?
This is the point where the range master says, “Prepare to defend your position”!
Listening to scanner now. Wonder if they might have their bomber?
Suspect number 2 was seen turning onto Fairfield St and heading toward the Charles and MIT. Could perps be MIT students?
What the heck is going on this week?!
fight them off with office furniture.
Please keep us informed. TIA.
That’s as good a supposition as anything right now.
Grab your shotgun and walk outside and fire off a few rounds in the air...then go back in and return to your DVR and X-BOX 360...ALL IS FINE.
Neither did 38 of the 40 pop up targets that looked like Soviet soldiers.
Unless the bombing was some weird physics experiment gone horribly awry, I would doubt it....
Or you could reach for the M&P 45 ACP ... and call 911 and request an ambulance.
Your choice ...
Or if you have put in enough range time, just call 911 and ask for the coroner....
Fire a couple rounds of buckshot through your door. You’ll be fine. Joe Biden cant’ be wrong about everything....
A better shot would request a hearse.
Sounds like a robbery but perp is dark skinned white male 6 11. 250 lbs. I am gonna stick with it awhile.

Fox News is reporting this is probably unrelated to the bombing..that this was some sort of robbery
Fox News update on Greta’s show that it’s a suspect fleeing from a robbery
FNC reporting LEO was disarmed by perp and shot with his own weapon.
“Could perps be MIT students?”
Plenty of Hotels on the Cambridge side of the River, stayed there a couple years back.
My hunch and hope are the bomb suspects are not Americans...I just don't see Americans setting bombs off at sporting events...This is generally the realm of those from the Mideastern world.
Why doubt it? Terrorists can be from anywhere and have any background...look at Ayers.
The political class in the beltway and their propagandists in the media are in full "nothing to see here" mode.
More likely the MIT students drug dealers.
Sure, terrorists can be from anywhere, but they’re not as likely to be from some places as opposed to others. If we were talking Berkeley, I’d be less doubtful. Much less doubtful.

There is always the exception, but I’m sticking with my hunch.
Sounds like a robbery..but you never know. I am obsessed now with checking news and scanners in Boston until they catch these terrorists.
I would have said the same before the Occupy stuff and Boston this week.
My prayers are for the officer.
Detective Pen on the case!
CNN saying FBI releasing that pic now so is real.
No obsessive compulsive pen is clueless but interested...lol.
I think Ayers reflected the time, the virulent anti-war movement, SDS/Weatherme, etc, and the cultural upheaval that was going on during the late 60s/early 70s. The closest today’ students come/came to that was the fairly pathetic “OWS” movement. US students haven’t been ‘into’ bombing for a full generation now.
You listening here??
I know a wonderful young lady that attends MIT. News from her mother is that she was not affected by this event.
Still . . . scary stuff for a parent in Texas.
Careful, Obama may take yer gun away for OCD /s
Prayers for the officer, and I hope they catch the shooter.
When they were showing a picture of one of the bomb suspects on CNN a few minutes ago, I noticed a guy a few feet away from him, and the guy had an MIT sweatshirt on. I know that’s probably just random given the proximity to MIT, but I found it coincidental as they had just reported on the shooting a couple minutes prior.
Isnt that what the South African runner did and killed his model girlfriend?
Also not sleeping well since those 3-4 Mexicans tried to break in my neighbors house and shot at her. Talked to the cops finally about it because the crime report did not mention a gun. His excuse was that they found the casing but not the bullet! Unfreakinbelievable. Some other neighbors heard the gun go off too. Woman says they shot at her. Cop says he thinks the gun discharged as they were running away. Can you believe that??
The point is, he lived to tell about it, by following Joe’s advice.
