Cop Describes Boston Bomber Shootout



As the trial against Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev continues, several police officers that testified about the night of the shootout with the Tsarnaevs. Joseph Reynolds, who spotted the Mercedes SUV the brothers had stolen, recounted seeing them driving “slow, very suspicious,” according to USA Today. Then, Tamerlan got out, approached the police vehicle and opened a barrage of fire that lasted eight minutes.

After calling for backup, the cops “continued the gunfight,” seeing “muzzle flashes, a lighter being lit and what looked like a wick burning.” Four pipe bombs, one that turned out to be a dud, flew their way. “It was horrendous. A lot of debris-I thought shingles were coming off houses…a lot of smoke, car alarms, people screaming.”

Others expected to testify include witnesses who lived on the Watertown street where the shootout took place, as well as the owner of the boat that Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was arrested in. Read more at USA Today.
