With the entire city of Boston essentially locked down for the entire day, airspace restricted and public transportation shut down, the news delivered at this evening’s press update is not what anyone wanted to hear. Police say that bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev managed to flee on foot and is still at large, although he is believed to be in Massachusetts.

He fled on foot and got away? This IS a Dennis Lehane novel.

Somebody tell me how a 19 y/o dude gets away on FOOT from THOUSANDS of cops, national guard, and special ops. That's embarrassing

The entire city of Boston let itself be taken hostage by a singe guy for 18 hours, and they don't even know if he was there.

Police presser: the bomber abandoned the car & fled on foot & escaped. He was surrounded by a gazillion cops. How did he manage this?

This kid is being aided and abetted; or he is underground in a hole/sewer somewhere. You can't get far on foot, no matter how fast you are.

So suspect two fled the scene on foot, somehow, eluding huge police presence. And authorities do not know where he is.
