Several gunshots were heard Friday evening in an area of Watertown, Massachusetts where officers were looking for the second suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings.

WPIX’s reporter heard the shots, and is reporting that there is a big increase in the amount of activity at a side street. Deputy cars and other officers responded quickly after the shots were heard.

It is not clear at this time, what happened and who fired the shots. Boston Police will only say there are “police operations” in Watertown. A federal law enforcement official told CNN they have engaged with the 19-year-old Boston Marathon bombing suspect, Dzhokar Tsarnaev.

About an hour before the gunshots were heard, the Governor lifted a “stay in place” order that had kept Watertown, and most of Boston at a standstill all day Friday.
