EASTON, Md.- A shoot-out and a manhunt for a suspected bomber in Boston has captured the attention of the country and law enforcement officials on the Eastern Shore.

"Immediately my heart goes out to the officers, first responders and victims in that community," said Queen Anne's County Sheriff Gary Hofmann.

All who wear the badge show up to work every day with one common goal, to protect and serve. Talbot County Sheriff Dallas Pope said that in his 36 years of service he has never seen anything quite like this.

"It seems so surreal," Pope said.

Deputy Taylor Leeson said he could believe what he was watching on TV.

"The first thing that comes to mind is chaos," Leeson said. "Its a reminder that this stuff can happen anywhere."

Law enforcement officials tell WBOC they go through extensive training to handle any kind of situationm but there is really no way to prepare mentally.

"When you are in the situation you don't have time to think about what's going on," said First Sgt. Mark Meil. "Its not until after the fact when the whole situation starts to sink in mentally."
