Governor Deval Patrick and Police Commissioner Ed Davis (Speaking for Mayor Tom Menino) have extended the "Shelter in Place" recommendation to all of Boston.
"We're asking people to shelter in place. In other words, to stay indoors with their doors locked and not to open their door for anyone other than a properly identified law enforcement officer," said Patrick in a press conference in Watertown this morning.
The order is an extension of the previous shelter recommendation, which included Watertown, Waltham, Newton, Belmont, Cambridge and Allston/Brighton. The new order means there are approximately 935,000 people are now locked in their homes.
"Please understand we have an armed and dangerous person(s) still at large and police actively pursuing every lead in this active emergency event. Please be patient and use common sense until this person(s) are apprehended," read a statement from the mayor's office.
