Watertown shootout leaves Boston Marathon bombing suspect dead (Video)

An absolutely terrifying evening of events in the Boston area has resulted in one Boston Marathon suspect dead and the other on the run, according to Boston police.

The video posted above shows footage of a shootout between police and the two alleged suspects that took place in Watertown, Mass., early Friday morning.

According to MSNBC, matters began Thursday evening when the two alleged marathon bombers robbed a 7-11. An MIT officer reportedly was responding to a disturbance and was shot by the two suspects. The suspects then reportedly carjacked a Mercedes SUV, briefly kidnapped the driver, and ended up in Watertown where they engaged in a shootout with police. Another version of the story from MSNBC says the MIT campus police officer was shot first, and then the suspects robbed the 7-11 before jacking the car.

MSNBC believes the two suspects are foreign terrorists who have been in the country for a year. They say the two are believed to have had some military training.

The man identified by the FBI as “Suspect 1″ is confirmed dead, per Boston PD and Beth Israel Medical Center in Boston. He reportedly got out of the SUV with explosives strapped to his chest and was shot by police. Suspect 2 from the bombing reportedly drove off, got out of the car, and is now on the run. Below are pictures of the two suspects, per the FBI:
