The Boston Globe is reporting that Boston Marathon Bombing suspect #1 is dead, and the pursuit continues for suspect #2 (the man identified wearing the white hat).

The Globe reports a chaotic night began around 10:30 p.m. when two men robbed a convenience store, which led the murder of an MIT police officer:

According to State Police Colonel Timothy Alben, the night’s outbreak of violence began about 10:30 p.m. police received reports of a robbery of a convenience store in Kendall Square near MIT. A few minutes later, an MIT police officer, who has not been identified, was shot multiple times while in his cruiser at Main and Vassar streets, near Building 32, better known as the renowned the Stata Center on the MIT campus.

The officer was pronounced dead at Massachusetts General Hospital.

A short time later, two men carjacked a Mercedes SUV at gunpoint, and the owner of that car was able to flee at a gas station on Memorial Drive. The SUV proceeded out Memorial Drive toward Watertown followed by a long train of police vehicles in pursuit.

At one point during the pursuit, the two suspects opened fire on Watertown police and a Transit Police officer, who was shot and who is now in critical condition at a Boston-area hospital this morning.

During the gunfight, the man known as Marathon suspect #1 was wounded. He was taken into custody and later died at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston, Alben said.

Police have since been searching for the other bombing suspect.

Reports indicate the two suspects are brothers – Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. Dzhokhar, who is 19, is the suspect believed to be still at large.
