HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) --
Police go door-to-door in search for Boston bomber
WATERTOWN, Mass. (AP) -- State police say officers are going door-to-door, but the Boston Marathon suspect is still on the loose.
Col. Timothy Alben of the Massachusetts State Police said Friday afternoon that officers would go street to street as the manhunt for the bombing suspect continues. Gov. Deval Patrick urged residents to continue staying indoors.
A pair of brothers is suspected of killing a Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer late Thursday, then stealing a car at gunpoint.
The suspects' clashes with police began hours after the FBI released photos and videos of them. Monday's bombings killed three people and wounded more than 180 others.
Twenty-six-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev (tsahr-NY'-ev) was killed overnight. His 19-year-old brother, Dzhokhar (JOH'-kahr) is on the loose.
MARATHON BOMBING-BOSTON LOCKDOWN
UPDATE: Streets deserted in uneasy Boston
BOSTON (AP) -- It's been far from a normal Friday in Boston and the surrounding area, as thousands of officers with rifles and armored vehicles swarm the streets. They're continuing the search for a 19-year-old college student who is wanted in the Boston Marathon bombing.
Boston and some of its suburbs are still at a virtual standstill. Public transit systems have been idle today, and people in Boston were told to stay where they are. Several area colleges and universities were locked down. And the Red Sox and Bruins have postponed their games tonight.
A man staying at a veteran's shelter in the shadow of City Hall said the scene was "creepy" -- with helicopters flying overhead, and authorities with automatic weapons in the streets.
Residents and tourists alike were frustrated and angry by the shutdown.
One man visiting from New York -- wandering the empty plaza beside a statue of Samuel Adams -- says it took him an hour and a half to find a cup of coffee. A couple from Dallas had been hoping to visit the Museum of Fine Art, Fenway Park and other landmarks -- but instead were having a hard time just finding a restaurant that was open.
Wounded Boston transit officer recovering
WATERTOWN, Mass. (AP) -- The transit police officer who authorities say was severely wounded by the Boston Marathon bombing suspects is out of surgery and has been stabilized.
A transit agency spokesman says Officer Richard Donohue remains in critical condition Friday at Mount Auburn Hospital.
The 33-year-old Donohue was brought to the hospital at about 1 a.m. Friday suffering from a single gunshot wound.
Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority spokesman Joe Pesaturo says Donohue is a married father of a 6-month-old child. He has been with the MBTA's police department for three years.
Donohue graduated in the same police academy class as Sean Collier, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer who authorities say was killed by the two suspects.
One of the bombing suspects was killed. The other remains at large.
Search called off for Honda Civic in bombing case
BOSTON (AP) -- Massachusetts State Police are calling off a search for a green Honda Civic that has been linked to the suspects in the marathon bombings.
Authorities initially said the at-large suspect in the bombings may have been driving the 1999 Civic, but police said later Friday that the car is in their possession and they are no longer looking for it.
Authorities in Connecticut urged people earlier Friday to be on the lookout for a gray Honda CRV, but police later said that vehicle had been recovered in Boston.
Nineteen-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev (JOH'-kahr tsahr-NY'-ev) is the target of a massive manhunt. His brother Tamerlan was also identified as a suspect in Monday's twin bombings and was killed in a night of violent clashes with police.
FBI takes computer from NJ sister of bomb suspects
WEST NEW YORK, N.J. (AP) -- The FBI has removed a computer from the New Jersey home of the sister of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects.
Police in West New York say the woman is cooperating in the investigation, but they didn't immediately release her name. They have cordoned off the three-story brick building across the Hudson River from New York City.
The woman, speaking earlier through a crack in the door, told News12 New Jersey and The Star-Ledger she is sorry for the families that lost loved ones.
She says she doesn't know what got into her brothers. At the same time, she says she doesn't know if it's true that her brothers were responsible.
Her brother Tamerlan Tsarnaev was killed overnight in a shootout with police outside Boston. Her younger brother remains at large.
