As officials in Massachusetts search for the second suspect, the Boston Police Department warned residents to stay inside of their homes. Another precautionary measure implemented was the suspension of public transit in Watertown, Massachusetts and the barring of any vehicles entering or leaving Watertown.

CBSnews.com further stated: “The Middlesex district attorney said the two men are suspected of killing a Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer on campus late Thursday, then stealing a car at gunpoint and later releasing its driver unharmed. Hours earlier, police had released photos of the marathon bombing suspects and asked for the public’s help finding them.”

“Authorities say the suspects threw explosives from the car as police followed it into Watertown. The suspects and police exchanged gunfire, and one of the suspects was critically injured and later died while the other escaped.”

Further reports indicated that the suspect who was dead appeared to have multiple gunshot wounds.
