    Something's going down in Boston

    A police SUV has been stolen by two men, they have automatic weapons and some reports say they've thrown grenades at police trying to stop them. Possibly related to the MIT shooting, possibly the Boston Marathon bombing. At least one officer shot, according to report.

    Here's a live TV feed: http://www1.whdh.com/video/7newslive

    Here's the Boston police scanner: http://www.broadcastify.com/listen/feed/6254/web

    Scary stuff. Here's hoping the good guys win tonight.

    Someone else said two in custody, one on the way to the hospital with injuries. Don't think that's been confirmed. No gunshots in the last few minutes. Some good reporting coming from the local TV station, although no one really knows anything for sure yet. Their photog has been right on top of it. Got video of one suspect surrendering.

    CNN is WAY better covering this than Fox or MSBNC

    Surreal morning here. Got half the region on lockdown. Everything's closed while they hunt for the second suspect.

    Apparently they were brothers - young guys, U.S. citizens, originally from Chechnya and spent some time in Turkey.
