    Also want to add that LE worked fairly well in identifying these guys so quickely. Good job there.
    Although the details are still sketchy it sounds like the guys were attempting to deploy bombs on the campus (at least that is the hunch I got), and the officer who was killed interrupted them. Yes, they were identified quickly, but if it is the case that they were in the process of trying to plant more bombs, then it was not the identification that led to the current developments.

    police scanner just said "we got him he is in custody right now"

    now calling for a "bomb tie down"

    apparently in custody now..

    3 now in custody.. looks like a cell.

    The media still hasn't reported that he's in custody. Who needs them?

    This is actually not the first time I have followed breaking news here. Although it is not entirely reliable (not that the news is on the cusp of a breaking story either) it is a great resource to have multiple people pooling their respective info in real time. This thread enabled me to get up to speed and linked into the developments in a hurry.

    Unreal... thought for sure this guy wouldn't get brought in alive. AWESOME.

    Sounds like 2 people went to pick him up roadside and somebody called it in. This thing gets stranger every turn.

    They may be waiting for confirmation. Earlier, people reported that the police scanner had identified Sunil Tripathi as suspect #2, but police descriptions of the suspects contradict that. The scanner could be wrong.

    Apparently, an officer with 3 suspects in a cab is sending photos to headquarters for verification. May explain why the media hasn't reported suspects caught - not verified yet.

    EDIT: My source for this is everyone on twitter listening to scanners and Reddit.

    Just woke up I don't have all the details so thanx or the updates. If this is the case then thank god for dumb luck! either way this is pretty good news, aside from the dead officer of course, lets hope they catch the 2nd guy soon.

    I must admit, the police scanner adds a whole new dimension to breaking news. I'm anxious to see that terrorist in handcuffs....I have lots of questions. lol where they came from, why they waited a year, etc.?

    I'm very sad about the two officers.
