Here’s an eyewitness report from the shooting and standoff in Boston today. (We’re watching the “breaking news” tag, which is how we found this story. If you post an eyewitness report on a breaking story, tag it!)
So apparently there was a shooting & hostage situation in my neighborhood this morning. The twittersphere blew up with all the reports, but the telling sign were the helicopters and sirens. @DFitzherbrt and I went over to take a look. We weren’t able to get too close, but got some pictures of the scene.
