WATERTOWN, Mass. (WTVA/AP) -- The governor of Massachusetts has ordered people in Boston and five suburbs to stay indoors as law enforcement search for the second suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing.
Flight restrictions are also in place over nearby Watertown, and taxi service in Boston has been suspended.
NBC News says the search is for 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. The network reports he was born in Kyrgyzstan, holding a Massachusetts driver’s license and living in the Boston suburb of Cambridge. He was the suspect in the white hat in surveillance photos from the marathon released by the FBI.
ABC News reports the reason there's such urgency in the manhunt is because it's believed Tsarnaev may have assault weapons or bombs on him and may be willing to die in a confrontation with law enforcement.
Both suspects, according to law enforcement, killed an MIT police officer, injured a transit officer in a firefight and threw explosive devices at police during their getaway attempt in a long night of violence that left one of them dead and another still at large Friday.
Two law enforcement officials told The Associated Press the suspects have been living legally in the U.S. for at least one year.
