Hours after two men alleged to be linked to Monday's Boston Marathon bombing engaged police in a wild car chase and shootout with in the suburb of Watertown, Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis confirmed in a press conference early Thursday that one of the two is dead and the other remains at large, according to ABC News.

"We believe this to be a terrorist," Davis said. "We believe this to be a man who has come here to kill people."

According to Davis, the two suspects stole a Mercedes-Benz SUV and became involved in an exchange of fire with police, in which "several explosive devices were discharged from the car at the police officers."

The suspect depicted by an FBI photo released Wednesday wearing a black baseball cap is the one presumed dead. Police are looking for the white-capped suspect.

Davis advised residents of Watertown to stay in their homes and not answer the doorbell, calling the remaining suspect "armed and dangerous" and "a threat to anybody who might approach him."

Davis told residents to call 9-1-1 if they see anything suspicious and instructed motorists passing through the airport not to pick up any passengers.

He said he would be providing further updates later into the morning.
