Police just cautioned that he might have an "explosive object" on him.

Lester Holt strung out on caffeine and speed, still running the next hour of NBC coverage at 5am like a boss

Pete Williams says black hat had an improvised bomb strapped to his chest, and there are unexploded bombs strewn across the streets of Watertown as they were throwing them out of the carjacked car at the police

"Overseas military backgrounds". Been here for a year. This may apply to black hat, not white.

Says "came here to kill people"; and still had an all time shitty getaway plan.

Sunil, the bomb, the boy who died, his sister who lost her leg, and his mother who suffered a brain injury.

Military backgrounds? Even Sunil Tripathi? I thought he was a college student. Interesting.

FBI generally only gets involved w/missing ppl when they have cause to believe it's associated w/a crime. FBI joined Tripathi search 3/24.
christ i'm trying to get the main NBC feed w/Today, but on the west coast we're trapped watching Last Call w/ Carson Daly because it's still 1:54am

Kerry Sanders (NBC) nearly got shot by suspicious cops.

from Pete Williams:

"tentative, not positive" identification of names

BOTH came to US about a year ago, "military experience overseas", tried to rob a 7-11 tonight

absolutely conflicting with Sunil, who's an American from Byrn Mawr.

That's so weird. Something doesn't connect there. Based on that video that UiU posted, it really doesn't seem like Tripathi "came from overseas" just a year ago. He was painted as a regular American college student.

So Tripathi might not be the "white cap" bomber, and a million people just got punked tonight? Or what? God damn.

it's not a tweet, he's saying it live on air. For whatever that's worth.

reporters are almost being reduced to live tweeters

with these 24/7 live news marathons, when there is not much credible news to report but just gabbing and speculation, like one might expect to get on the view

why the fuck would you rob a 7-11? What sort of getaway plan is that? What sort of second strike is that?

"these two men came to the US about a year ago"

NOT Sunil

Pete explicitly says that it is NOT a missing Brown student. He's going all in on this.

These guys are/were incredibly stupid. Understatement, yes. But, you know what I mean. I mean, fuck.

And the "white cap" bomber is either a missing American college student or a foreign military operative with explosives training?

Fuck.

I hope for his family's sake that "white cap" isn't the student.
