Boston Police Tweeting Real-Time Updates on Marathon Bombing Manhunt

One suspect in the Boston Marathon bombing is dead and the other is still at large after a late-night shoot-out near Boston in Watertown, MA.

Police have posted a picture of the remaining suspect, 19-year-old Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, on Twitter, who is believed to be driving a gray, ’99 Honda CRV with a MA license plate number 316-ES9. Governor Patrick has instructed residents of Boston and surrounding areas to stay indoors, as the suspect is considered to be armed and dangerous. Residents are also urged not to broadcast the tactical positions of the homes being searched, as this could compromise officer safety.
