A state report on the actions of law-enforcement agents in the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombing concluded that the response was a “great success,” but had several problem areas, including lack of coordination and over-firing. The report states that the additional officers who arrived were firing “without necessarily having identified and lined up their target or appropriately aimed their weapons” and when the suspect fled, a “multitude of police vehicles parked in the roadway” delayed his pursuit. More than 200 shots were fired on Laurel Street in Watertown while more were shot at the boat where suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was hiding. One cop fired at an unmarked cop car while another fired without authority, causing the massive shootout at the boat.
