Yes, they had video of that witness on television describing the scene.

I had a most unfortunate experience on FB where somebody linked/posted a photo of the dead guy. Hello, a little warning.

I have read speculation that he may have been wounded in the firefight last night.

That's the weird thing - if he was injured/bleeding, dogs should be able to relatively easily pick up that scent unless it's been raining there?

No rain, maybe a short sprinkle overnight last night. Supposed to be heavy rain moving in overnight tonight.

CBS is saying he threw a pressure cooker bomb but that the lid fell off when he threw it.

Everything about this family is really odd to me and very unlike all other immigrant families I've known (and having immigrated myself as a child, I've known many). Typically, in the "new country" people tend to stick together, stay close, etc because they don't have external emotional supports or friends. But here you have this family, various aunts and uncles, none of whom have been in touch with these kids for at least 8+ years. Moreover, at least one of the sisters has also had no contact with her brothers for years. Really peculiar.

With all the explosive supplies, nails and ball bearings they bought they must have run out of cash before heading to Home Depot for duct tape.

my guess this is/was a falling out with the parents (siblings) over money
or maybe their mom is the black sheep that got the boys cut off from the rest of the family, the father is in the old country
I know blood (family) is usually stronger than water (money), but not always

this is not Chechen terror against America
no such thing

Chechen terror would be directed at Russia or Putin.
