Law enforcement personnel were still searching for a suspect in Monday’s Boston Marathon bombing on Friday afternoon, and those who live in the city of Boston and and six suburbs were told to “shelter in place” by state officials while the manhunt was underway.
One of the suspects in Monday’s bombings, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, was killed early Friday morning after leading police on a wild chase after the fatal shooting of a Massachusetts Institute of Technology campus police officer. The surviving suspect is identified as Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19. A Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority officer was also critically wounded during the chase.
Mass transit services were suspended in the affected areas, and businesses were closed until further notice. Residents were told they should not answer the door except to a police officer, and were advised to stay away from windows.
