Shootout with Boston Bombing Suspects

Kitzenberg had a bird’s eye view of the gun fight

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

Andrew Kitzenberg had a bird's eye view of the shootout between police and the Tsarnaev brothers, April 19, 2013, in Watertown, Mass. Kitzenberg managed to capture the event on his camera phone and posted his images, along with a commentary, to his blog getonhand.com

The gunfight, which saw the detonation of another pressure cooker bomb, left one of the suspects, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, dead. The younger brother, Dzhokhar Tsanaev, managed to elude capture and was the subject of a massive manhunt which virtually shut down the city of Boston. Later that evening he was apprehended hiding out in a boat in a residential backyard.

Kitzenberg writes: "On Thursday night [early Friday morning, April 19, 2013] at 12:45am EST. I was in my living room working on my computer when I heard multiple 'pops' coming from outside. At that point, I had no idea that I was about to become an eye witness to the biggest news story in the country."
