BREAKING: Gunshots Fired In Watertown
WATERTOWN, Mass. (AP) - A round of blasts has been heard in Watertown, Mass., amid the search for the surviving suspect in the Boston Marathon bombings.
Emergency and military vehicles sped through town after an earlier burst of gunfire.
State police spokesman David Procopio says there is "renewed activity in Watertown" is connected to the search for 19-year-old college student Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. Authorities are telling residents of the area to stay indoors.
The burst of activity came at the end of a tense day in and around Boston, and less than an hour after police announced that they were scaling back the hunt because they had come up empty-handed following an all-day search that sent thousands of SWAT team officers into the streets and paralyzed the metropolitan area.
WATERTOWN, Mass. (AP) - Massachusetts State Police say the at-large Boston Marathon bombing suspect fled on foot and may not have a car. Col. Timothy Alben says police have no indication Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has a vehicle.
Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick says mass transit service is resuming in Boston even though Tsarnaev is still on the lam. Authorities in Boston had suspended all mass transit and warned close to 1 million people in the entire city and some of its suburbs to stay indoors. The other suspect, his brother, died in a desperate getaway attempt.
The brothers are suspects in Monday's marathon bombings, which killed three people and wounded more than 180 others. The men are also suspected of killing a Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer in his vehicle late Thursday.
